Great news and great gifts

The group quilt I made together with 3 other women has been approved for the annual exposition of the Dutch Quiltersguild! Four panels, each made by one of us, are joined together to make one group quilt. After the expostion has ended I can show you the quilt.

For now you can take sneak peeks at some bits and pieces of the panel I made. I found a wonderful hand embroidery tutorial at Laura Wasilowski's blog, called Thread-u-cation Thursday and this little piece shows one of my first attempts in using the "French knot":

Past postings show more small sneak peeks at my panel.
By clicking here they are revealed.

If you are in the neigbourhood of Deventer, from September 10-15, please come and visit the exposition in the Lebuinus Church. There will be 320 quilts to admire and number 234 is ours. During the exposition I will be also a first time "angel" on 3 days, so perhaps we will meet and have a nice chat with each other.

One of the partipating quilting friends who is in New Zealand at the moment, surprised me with New Zealand fabric beauties:

As a special treat for me, because I supplied her with the batting for her panel, she also has send me these beautiful fat quarters from her local quilt store in Wellington:

Thank you for your visit!
