two quilts

I want to show you two of my quilts.

This pineapple quilt is a disign from

The Haan en Wagenmakers it's made from typical 'old-dutch sits' design material. it's a very large quilt. I made it with the machine but quilted by hand.
The other quilt is a sampler I made with material from my childerens clothes. I also used material from Oilily wich they used to sell in Alkmaar in an outlet store. I made and quilted this one by hand.

this quilt is my daughter's favourite, because it has all these bright colours.

In my classroom Me and my colleague also use a variety of colours, I will show you next time..

both the quilts are beautiful, but i have to say that the one made from your children's old clothes is simply wonderful. not only is it a beautiful, bright quilt, but having made it from old scraps that will be a constant memory of years gone by is fantastic - it's what quilting was all about.

I'm back for another visit -- the pineapple quilt is just wonderful! I keep looking at it, enlarging, checking if they are all plaids, noting the fussy cut centers. LOVE it! I've added you to my Bloglines - you have a wonderful sense of bright, happy colors!
