Vacation quilt project

Altough we have school until the 24th of juli this year, I did start a vacation quilt. I'm making a Dutch square quilt, nine patches sewed by hand.

It'll be easy to take with me when we travel trough France and Spain.
I'm not sure how to finish the quilt, it can be like this,

So you'll see more of this project in time.

I'm participating a 'purples fabric' quilt tree and I received my first two fabrics from Jacoline yesterday.

I'm curious how this wil turn out? and where all the purple fabric pieces will come from. Now I'm off sending my own purple fabrics to next quilting tree ladies and in search for new participants!

Have a great day,

Oh wat ben je alweer ijverig! 24 juli pas? Die hele vakantie spreiding hoeft voor mij niet. Geef gewoon iedereen 2 maanden vrij, dan hoeven we toch niet allemaal in dezelfde 3 weken op vakantie en kunnen we ook nog eens neefjes en nichtjes in een andere regio bezoeken. Mmmm sorry ik liet me even gaan. Nu maar hopen dat we geen hittegolf krijgen voor die tijd hè? En dan zeker pas naar school als het onderhand herfst is....nou ja!
