Most of the blocks were made by my quilting buddies , and i feel deeply ashamed for hiding them in a bag for years now..... I considered a brown stripe for the sashing as ideal , until i saw a picture from the original quilt from about 1880 , off-white plain muslin , but of course!!
The brown fabric was just to heavy and dark , i'm happy with the result .
It will stay a top for the moment , and there is a reason for this , but a cannot tell more for the moment....
This is a stupid mistake i made this weekend , because i always go full speed , thought i read the explanation a hundred times %µ§£ !!!!!
This is (will be ) the first border for NI ,i sewed all the pink rectangles and green tringles THE SAME DIRECTION !!
And it must be a zigzag border...
Now i must change half of the rectangles....
My latest find from the junkshop : 8 metres of this lovely japanese kimono fabric , blending in so nice with Dutch folklore fabric ;
This is Carolyn Konig ,a quilter extraordinaire from Australia , and we met in Nantes ; Her book is awesome , so i will pop in with more pics from POUR L'AMOUR DU FIL very soon.
Take care and keep quilting,
