Vintage Spools meets French General



I finished my Vintage Spools quilt, designed by Sephanie from Loft Creations. This was a wonderful fun project to make and I love the result with the French General fabrics! If you click on the picture, you can take a closer look and see that the borders are made with the sides of the fabrics. French General always has such pretty borders on their fabrics and now I could finally use them (o:
In the original pattern, Stephanie used ric rac for the sashing. I am still not quite sure whether I will do that. I think it looks very pretty this way!

Vandaag heb ik Vintage Spools af kunnen maken, een quilt die ontworpen is door Stephanie van Loft Creations. Dit is een heel leuke quilt te maken en de stofjes vind ik er erg mooi voor passen. Als je op de foto klikt, kun je de randen beter bekijken. Deze heb ik van de randen van de stof gemaakt. French General maakt altijd zulke mooie randen en nu wist ik eindelijk waarvoor ik ze kon gebruiken (o:
In het originele patroon wordt ricrac gebruikt voor de sashing. Ik ben nog aan het twijfelen, maar ik denk dat ik het zo laat!




And I could actually sit outside for a while today, to finish the Vintage Spools. Bibi decided to join me (o:

Ik kon vandaag zelfs buiten zitten om de bies van de quilt af te maken. Bibi hield mij gezelschap (o:

Erg mooi, wat een heerlijke kleuren.

En dat wolafwikkel ding? inderdaad, de bollen rollen niet meer door de kamer en ook niet meer onder je stoel door en dan natuurlijk nog het liefst om de poten gedraaid.... hihi.

What a lovely finish Simone! It is splendid! This is on my list to make as soon as I can. Stephanie's gorgeous Oak Park bag is next on my list then Spools.
