Crib quilt with 8 pointed star

Just a simple little quilt, crib size, finish. I started the top in 2004! The pattern inspiration came from old antique Dutch crib quilts.

The white fabric with the little flowers was a handkerchief and small tray cover made by my mother-in-law. Although the edges were worn, I could use the middle parts for these patches and made a top in remembrance of her. I chose the other fabrics, because I thought they could have been her colours as well.

The initials of her surname and maiden name are written in the middle with the year of her birth: 1918 and the year she passed away, 2004. I admired her because she had a strong personality, was a positive thinking woman, could be very strict, but took care of her little family the best she could, no matter what.

At the back is a lovely bird fabric. I saved it for several years. It feels good to finally have made use of it.


Size: 78 cm by 91 cm (about 31"by 36")
fabrics: all cotton
batting: 100% cotton Hobbs
sewn and quilted by machine, except for the circle in the middle, it is appliqued by hand.

Altijd mooi om herinneringen in een quiltje te verwerken. Héél mooi verhaaltje achter deze quilt. Fijn om zo'n mooie, warme herinneringen aan je schoonmoeder te hebben!!
Groetjes, Liliane
