Some color in a rather gray morning, but as i'm writing this, the sun breaks through.
The start of a new quilt: the most boring part is done: the triangles, and though i made them with thangles, it's very, very time consuming!
I'm goin' to make this quilt, another Fons and Porter's project of their book: Quilts from America's heartland.
Next part will be the nine patches, after that the square in a square.
Thereafter it will be easy peasy.
The red fabric hasn't been chosen yet,Who cares.............;
I found this plate last year in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.
In summer there is a weekly fleamarket along the canal, very relaxed.
It's only 10 miles away from my sisters home, we go there early in the morning for a hunt.
The quilt is 25 years old, made of woollens.
The black stripes were man's pants, the kind of fabric that was used for costumes worn for weddings and funerals until the fifties or maybe sixties.
If i remember it well, my dad called it KISTENTUUG.
I also used a tweed vest and an old red skirt.
It's been washed many times, tied, used for camping, picknick's and so on.
Quiltmania is organising
POUR L'AMOUR DU FIL.
It could be a lovely break before summer.
Happy quilting, Will in Paris
