A pic for Joes in Amsterdam, DUTCH QUILT CAT, from Pondichery, in the latest issue of Marie Claire Maison.
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.............;

My love for Spode china is recent, only a few years.
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.

DH under the siesta quilt.
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.

I decided to go to Nantes from 24 to 26 April.
Quiltmania is organising
It could be a lovely break before summer.
Happy quilting, Will in Paris

Your DH looks quite happy with the siesta quilt.

I grew up in the US and we had an expression when I was a kid. We used to say 'easy peasy pudding pie'. I don't know what it meant but you brought back that pleasant memory.

Have fun with those little triangles.

ttfn :) Yuki
