Plaids

A few days before Sinterklaas I received another gift. Kathie knew that I would love to work with plaids. She sent me a kit from a quilt she made and I loved so much. She also sent me yards of ecology cloth. My readers know how much I like to work with this fabric. To me it has the antique feel I love so much
What a surprise that Kathie also sent me a big plastic bag with scraps. I recognize so many fabrics from projects Kathie worked on. These fabrics are very special to me.

Look how inviting the kit was. Kathie already cut the pieces into the right size. I only had to sew them together.



A few minutes later...



half an hour later...



almost two hours later, Ta daahh...



Thank you so much Kathie. I love this quilt. I hope to baste it this week and finish it soon!




Look what else I grab out of Kathie’s scrapbag. Wait and see what I’m going to do with this.
