Patchwork and Quilt Fair

Last week I wrote about the blue cardigan I’m knitting. Over the weekend I knitted quite a lot, but I had to frog it. The upper part of this cardigan has a lace pattern and that is something I find very hard to make. So obviously it all went wrong, and I’m back at the same point as I was last week. So nothing to show you on that front.

In the weekend I went to a craft fair, where there was quite a large part reserved for patchwork and quilting. One of the most beautiful quilts I saw, was made by Mariet Soethout-Mous. It is a mixture of printed fabrics, embroidery, ribbons and little dolls attached.

Of course I couldn’t resist all the gorgeous booths with fabric. So I bought some Dutch colours,


and some bright coloured fabric,


Then I saw the best rotary cutter ever!!


Just couldn’t resist those little tulips.

Groetjes, Dorien

That is an interesting quilt..I'd love to see it for real. Lovely fabrics and rotary cutter..I don't think I would be able to resist it either. I don't know why but they don't seem to stay sharp here...maybe it's the humidity.

Hi Dorien, I'm glad you bought the cutter - it's just perhect for you and so beautiful!
Too bad you had to frog your knitting, but sometimes creating needs that, too.
You bought the most beautiful fabrics!!! I love all of them!!! That quilt in the crafty fair is really wonderful! So full of beautiful patches and details!
Have a lovely time! xxx Teje
