Spring... quilt

It's great to enjoy the sun in springtime! I think we appreciate this first sun more than any other time. It's like everything is more bright and colorful!

spring tulips

Like these tulips I got from Corry
And to go shop for new stuff like magazines and napkins at the Hema.

spring feeling

Told you I'm working on a quilt with embroidered parts. I found this tablecloth on a flea market,

And as you can see on the left side of this picture.. I cut out some flowers and sewed them in the quilt.

I think it's really going to be a spring quilt!
The only thing is that I'm not sure how to make the edges so I'll put it aside for a few days.. and hope an idea will 'plop' in my head.

And about 'plop's' in my head... I'm going to use this combination for the bag like the one with the Marken fabrics.

Hope it will turn out like the 'plop' in my head.
I wish you all a good sunny start of the week,

That is so pretty. I can't help it, I always like quilts made of squares. Don't they always just look right??

Karen said...

What a lovely quilt where the old meets the new;) Very imaginative of you!

Dank voor je reacties. Heel leuk dat je mijn berichtjes gelezen hebt. Ik heb al jaren een geborduurd tafelkleed van mijn schoonmoeder maar hier en daar vlekken. Het knippen van delen en hergebruiken lijkt me erg leuk. Het resultaat is erg leuk bij jou.Ik kijk regelmatig naar je weblog en geniet ervan.
Groetjes Annemieke

Isn't it wonderful how things just plop into our heads! Love the quilt-clever idea to include the embroidered flowers:)

I love the way you have incorporated those little embroidered motifs into your quilt! It looks great!

I love how you repurposed the embroidery from the tablecloth into a quilt. I have several vintage linens that are stained but I couldn't bring myself to give or throw away. Now I have a project to work on in finding new homes for these little hidden jewels. :) Beautiful job.

Dat gaat weer een prachtige quilt worden! Een randje met bloemen wellicht? Je hebt tegenwoordig van dat leuke gedessineerde biaisband, of bolletjes band, of is dat nu allemaal vloeken in de quiltkerk?
Mooi die dubbele tulpen. En dat tijdschrift is ook niet te versmaden. Had ik je al verteld dat ik de Flow op jou aanraden gekocht had en geweldig vond, nu ook weer gekocht. Dit tijdschrift ken ik al maar heb ik vorige week weten te weerstaan, misschien ga ik met de paasdagen alsnog door de knieën. Ik heb mezelf een 'tijdschriftkoopverbod' opgelegd zolang er nog 1 meter tijdschrift staat om 'uit te zoeken' en de twee kastjes met 'bewaar' geheel uitpuilen! Fijne week!

Your posts are always so cheery, Heleen. The Springtime Quilt is lovely, and DH's terrace is a nice suny place to sit outside... have a good week.

Very pretty with the old embroidery included! I'll have to look at my drawer of old pillowcases with a different eye.

kristin said...

Your quilt is looking great! And the tulips are super.

Heidi said...

Now that old tablecloth will be put to a new use as a pretty quilt. I am sure the 'plop' will happen and you will know just what to do. I am also sure that purse will be great.

Hugs ~
