September is over?!
I really didn't have the chance to
stitch up a new September mini
so, if you will forgive me,
I'll share a mini from the past,
2004 to be exact.
A friend of mine had recently had the opportunity
visited the Netherlands
and went to
Den Haan & Wagenmakers in Amsterdam
and brought back fabric to share.
I used my pieces by appliqueing this pattern by
American Folk Art Sampler
38" x 38"
The colors are soft and pastel
with subtle texturing,
tone on tones.
The colors popped on the black background
At this time I was
still making prim folk art designs
and I remember thinking how fun it was
to work with these cheerful colors in the
The sawtooth border was appliqued as
one long rectangular piece and clipped and folded as you went.
The quilt was hand quilted.
Despite being made 17 years ago, it is
still a favorite of mine.
Each quilt has a story and memories.
Please jump over to Wendy's
blog, The Constant Quilter,
to see what the
other mini creators have
been up to.
Until Next Time-
