A few weeks after our vacation I read that there was a little quilt show in Friesland. The quilts which were shown are from the book: 'Passing on the comfort'. I've read the book a few years ago. I knew that the quilts were travelling through the US. What I didn't knew that they were back in the Netherlands. As soon as I read it I told my DH that we are going for a weekend to Friesland.
The book is very impressive and so was the little show in Friesland. It's the story behind the quilts what makes them so outstanding!
We love Friesland. It's our favorite part of The Netherlands. The countryside is so beautiful. I love seeing the beautiful churches in the small villages.
Behind the dike at the left hand is the Waddenzee. Look how peaceful. If you enlarge the picture you can see a typical old Dutch style boat.
I had to capture our wonderful weekend in a quilt. I was inspired the most by the beautiful log cabin quilt I saw. So I grabbed my ruler, fabrics, nice music on en started cutting, sewing and singing....
To be continue :-)
