Turqoise, pink and yellow squares.

 This quilt is finished! I first wrote about it here in October 2014. I've had lots of fun with 'just' using squares!

I used old embroidery found in a thrift shop and cut them in squares. All the squares have Dutch scenery, embroidered in  cross stitches.

The embroidery squares are combined with fabric squares from different designers and simple pink plaid  fabric.

I quilted with big stiches and perlé yarn number 8 and the pink is number 5. I prefer the number 8 perlé, it works much easier.

 The back of the quilt is made of a pink and white plaid fabric.

On a garden bench last night, the light was dimming fast.

The quilt is on our breakfast table where it will stay for a while. The colours are very happy and bright to start the day!

This quillt measures approx: 1.70cm by 1.70cm
The individual squares are 11 by 11cm finished size.
Batting: a very thin layer of cheese cloth
Hand quilting: big  stitches with perlé yarn number 8 and 5
Pattern: 'just' squares

Have a nice Sunday!

Ik zou de hele tijd mijn bordje op schoot houden in plaats van op tafel.
Wat een hele leuke vrolijke quilt is dit.
Geweldig idee om het zo te doen.
