CUTE! I get squeamish when it's time to wash, even though I pre-wash my fabric. I always love the after the wash results though.

It shows once more that quilts don't have to be intricate to be lovely. This is a real sweetie!!

Hallo Heleen, al een tijdje ben ik niet meer bij je op visite geweest, maar het is nog steeds een wondermooi kleurenspel bij jou!! Prachtige quilt heb je gemaakt! Op ons woonforum (www.picasaforum.hotforum.nl) zoekt iemand naar ideetjes wat je zoal met die leuke zakdoeken van de Zeeman kunt doen en als ik me goed kan herinneren had jij (of je zus?) er ooit een quilt mee gemaakt. Klopt dat? Ik heb je link op het forum geplaatst, maar weet zelf niet meer waar ik het plaatje zou kunnen terugvinden.
Groetjes, Marjolijn

Wat een tempo! Net aangekondigd en nu al weer af. En dan wordt het ook nog zo mooi. Ik ben vol bewondering, voor de quilt en je prestatie!

Very very cute!!! I’m always anxious to put quilts in the washing machine!

I only had one unpleasant experience with a quilt that had lots of black fabric in it, although I used colourcatch tissues while washing, all the lighter blocks are grey now..!

Hello Helen, my name is Ann and I am from Victoria, Australia. I really like the fabrics for this quilt, could you please give me the website or shop name where you purchased them. I am intending on making a tribute quilt for my mother whose family is from the Netherlands. Looking forward to hearing from you, Ann
