I spend 2 weeks in The Netherlands in December: a week with my sister Hanne and her family, ( she is a very talented quilter btw ) and afterwards a week at Joes' ( Dutch quilt cat blog) with
Tonya (Lazy gal ) . It happens that Joes owns the most extended quilt book library we have ever seen, so inspiration was everywhere! We had a trip to Leeuwarden up north in Friesland, passing by the dike between North Holland and Friesland, through the flat country to see the Quiltshow in L . A dazzling collection of antique Dutch quilts, garments, presented in a very seductive way.I bought the latest book of AN MOONEN, who is a well known textile and quilt historian. She published two other books about Duch quilts before and she has a website too, partly in English.
Tonya has also shown lovely photo's from Leeuwarden, look at the art-deco phamacy! More about my stay in Holland next time, greeting from Paris, bright light today but chilly and windy! Will V
