Gone for the weekend

to Granville,for some quality time with the princess and her mum, just before the summer.
She turned 10 in May, growing fast in many ways and ALWAYS HUNGRY.........
The weather was gorgeous, and i came home with a red red nose, not such a good idea....



Show you this to prove i'm quilting steady on what i call the other Dutch quilt, the one from Pennsylvania.
Some people asked how i did the top in such a short time:
i designed the center medallion on graphpaper and appliquéd and pieced this part by hand.
All the rest is machine pieced.
I'm quilting in front of my computer , watching, better say listening, to Dutch and French tv programs i've missed, never a dull moment.

I've pulled out some  Japanese fabric, antique kimono fabric and some more recent, to make a log cabin on the Featherweight, wit an offwhite background, bought in Amsterdam at VAN HIER TOT TOKYO, a shop on the PRINSENGRACHT, close to the Westerkerk.
They sell remnants and kimono's for next to nothing.

Have also a new stash of workmenshirts, but no idea for the moment.

Before i wish you a very good weekend, i must confess that i may need to go to rehab from PINTEREST, oh boy, what an addiction....
If you want to follow me, look for Willemke Vidinic, i'm creating a brand new world as i want to see it, and household routine, my foot.....
Last thing, i wish an unforgettable saturday to the Dutch quilters going to the FEATHERWEIGHT CONVENTION in Hall, at Bep's quilting paradise, have a great moment girls.....

Just happened upon your blog and have enjoyed seeing your quilting projects. I especially like your hand-appliquéd medallion quilt. The medallion makes the quilt--beautiful!
