And this is the second quilt I finished. The quilt for my sister Adriënne. It is the Fat Quarter Mystery BOM 2011 (flowers). The colors are so nice and soft. They couldn't even be caught with the sun. There was a tulip block to this quilt, but it was so simple compared with the others, that I decided not to make it. Don't understand how they could have added that. But, that's the fun about quilting: there is always a solution to be found (o:

En dit is de tweede quilt die ik af heb gemaakt. De quilt voor mijn zus Adriënne. Het is de Fat Quarter Mystery BOM 2011 (bloemen). De kleuren zijn zo mooi en zacht. Zelfs de zon kon het niet reflecteren. Er was ook een blok met een tulp, maar die was zo eenvoudig, dat ik besloten heb die niet te maken. Snap eigenlijk nog steeds niet hoe ze die hadden kunnen toevoegen. Maar, dat is het leuke aan quilten: je kunt altijd wel een oplossingen vinden (o:

This quilt was quilted by Anne from Maple Leaf. She takes so much care of the quilt and treats it with love. So happy I found her. This is the second quilt she quilted for me. Many more to go her way (o:

Anne van Maple Leaf heeft deze quilt gequilt. Zij behandeld de quilts met zo veel liefde en zorg. Ik ben heel blij, dat ik Anne gevonden heb! Het is de tweede quilt die ze voor mij heeft gequilt. Er zullen nog vele volgen (o:

Esp. love your first quilt - that zig zag quilting adds such interest!! Did you mark that first or just go for it? fm foot?

Sarah zei

Wow! Your Staind quilt is absolutely gorgeous! I always loved your choice of solids, but the back and the quilting are just wonderful! Love it. The BOM quilt is lovely too, what a difference!

Two great finishes! I love them both. Your on a roll!

Stephanie zei

Wonderful finishes. I love the architecural feeling of the stained glass quilt and I love how you photographed it. Your BOM is quite the opposite, soft and pretty. I love your varying styles of "play." Enjoy your blackbird.

Ulla zei

Congratulations on the great finishes. I loved your Stained Quilt from the beginning, and you found a clever way of quilting it. The other quilt has such lovely soft colours. I can't tell which one is the block replacing the tulip.- You have such beautiful weather now.

Leanne zei

2 lovely quilts. I really like the quilting on Thijme's quilt, did you do it. LOVE the photo with your shadow in it.

Wendy zei

lovely quilts! I particularly love the first one, the colours, the design, the quilting, all perfect!

Tracy zei

WOW--two more big finishes! Thijme's quilt is wonderful, Simone. I love how this looks like some modern stained glass in a church or public building. And the BOM quilt is gorgeous--love the color. Well done! You're start off the new year is a great creative way! Many thanks for mentioning my workshop--very sweet of you. :o) So glad to have your along--it's going to be fun! ((HUGS))

Lynn zei

I saw the first quilt (I loved the stained glass look) and was amazed. Then saw the second and was completely blown away!!
Beautiful work!

The Patchsmith zei

Both quilts are stunning - and you have made the bags look lovely. I particularly like the quilting on Thijme's quilt. It contrasts well with the squares and rectangles. Nicely done Simone.

Cattinka zei

Liebe Simone,
das sind zwei ganz besonders schöne Quilts. Mir gefallen Deine stained glass window Quilts ja schon lange, das wär vielleicht auch was für mich.
Der Zweite ist viel zu schwierig für mich DU hast ihn aber sehr schön genäht!

Grit zei

Wow, wunderschöne quilts.
Besonders der Blaue ist genau mein Fall.
Liebe Grüße Grit

Just-Do zei

Hallo Simone,
beide Quilts sind super schön geworden. Die beiden Nutzer werden sich sicher total freuen. Der stained class window Quilt hat mich erinnert, dass ich auch schon mal 2 Blöcke genäht habe. Es sind Blumenmotive, leider jetzt bei den UFO´s.
Viele Grüße
