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!
