The chicken is a block I draw myself (wanted to make an Easter quilt one day...)
This one really cleared out my closet because a lot of left over blocks were used in this quilt. Also a few unfinished projects are finished because of this project!!
Le petit Monde by Jaqueline Morel
Ingrid's quilts. My husband draw the pattern for me and I made it into a paper piecing pattern.
Lori Holt from Bee in my Bonnet . May be one day I will make the whole quilt. I appliqued this one with a herringbone stitch I showed here. The mini blocks I made during a class somewhere in the 90's....and they survived!
The big character 'A' is made with the broderie persé technique. And the bright coloured block in pink and yellow was bought at an antique stand (and is about 150 years old). The little handkerchief with the character 'A' was a gift when I was about 8 years old.
In this quilt I also included left over blocks from previous quilts like 'klosjes' from the klosjesquilt, a basket from my basket quilt.
I like paper pieced patterns like this with the flying geese going round, I made that one years ago.
Size: 1.70 cm by 1.73 cm, (67 inches by 68 inches)
Quilting: Hand quilting in big stitches, without a hoop, with yarn from Weeks dye works
Batting: 100 % cotton.
Embroidered over the finished blocks with perlé yarn numbers 8 and 5, in pink, reds and beige.
Washed in the washing machine (with 6 colourcatchers!) and partly dried in the drier.
Have a good and creative weekend,
