A few minutes and a cup of coffees later, a happy mom behind her machine :-)
My dear friend Dawn surprised me with solids she bought in Lancaster. Especially a brown color attracted my eye :-)
Inspired by the tripp to the mill I had to make an Amish quilt.
a bit later...... it needs a bit more......
After searching the web I found this picture. Yes it needs blue! Just a little bit.
And here it is: My first top on my featherweight. Now it has to come alive with my quilting stitches!

Last week we went to windmill De Zandhaas close to our house. The mill was built in 1779 .When you go in time moves years back! I thought it would be nice to share some pictures with you. They are all so beautifull.
Look at these wooden shoes! You see them when you step through the frontdoor.
In the windmill is a little shop. You can buy all kinds of flour, ecological vegetables, and a lot more!!!!! Isis is buying old fashion liquorice.
A part of the shop. Picture is taken from stairs.
The feeling of this mill and seeing the colors puts me in the mood for a simple Amish quilt :-)

Megan talked on her blog about a cutting party she had with friends! Well she wasn't the only one who received so many tumblers. They know I start cutting tumblers from all your fabrics
and they thought it would be nice to send me a ziploc full with tumblers. Surprise!! Thank you so much ! I will add them to my quilt. What good friends :-))
I think two years ago we had a sampler project at the LQS where I work. Next year a show is planned with all samplers. We had ( I thought) 5 groups with 15 students each. If everyone finishes their quilt there will be 75 quilts ! I taught 2 groups. So I feel some pressure to finish mine... My only problem is that I don't like it anymore... What do you think? Any suggestions?

But what I need and want to do takes more than 13 hours a day. So my conclusion: The day is too short or I need more hours in a day . LOL
