A week in the country

In the aastern part of France, with Vesoul as the nearest town of some importance, we had a wonderful quilt convention organised by Betty, who took care of us as a mother. The house, more than 200 years old, take a look at the floor! good for some quilt inspiration?


The tiny little hexies Betty is working on

And the sister's quilt Juud and her sister Karin are making, both took the quilt from Petra Prins' and An Moonen's book Promenade dans un jardin Hollandais. This quilt was the subject of much laughter and jokes.
It's called the ZEUREN Project and we call all quilters to join us!





The last evening we had dinner in a nice restaurant, from left to right: Ineke van der Molen, Betty Prins, Wilma Malenstein, Will Vidinic, Karin Siemes and Judith Ebbelaar.

At the end we closed this door, hoping to come back one day.
More to come fellowquilters, stay tuned!

A week in the country sounds lovely, but a week in the French countryside sounds divine and sewing too, how wonderful!

"Les sœurs" - "De zeuren" is such a fantastic quilt, and the place where you sewed together is so beautiful ! :))
As I told Juud, this morning, I'm gonna "zeuren", as well... I certainly didn't need another new project on my working table, but I just can't resist. Anyway, this will be a lovely in-between project.

THANKS for this post, and for the inspiration you always give us :))

Gratefully,
NADINE
XOXOXO
