and I want to share my journeys in quilting !

But, my "Threads and Treasures" sometimes include embroidery, painting, or spinning wool
and weaving

It is great that you are visiting, and I hope you feel at home here.

Finished quilt and Civil War Bride block

Last night at 10 o'clock I finished the binding on the Nursery Rhyme quilt.
Just as well, because today was our granddaughter's birthday. She will sleep with it on her bed tonight.
I had quilted it on the machine - first time for me....!

Last week I finished a Civil War Bride block, but because my sister from Holland was here, I waited until now to show you. It was fun, and I chose to embroider the strawberry crowns.

Now I shall have to catch up on cleaning the house.....
Have a nice evening.

Oh, Jane. The quilt for your granddaughter is exquisite! So cute! She must have felt like a Princess when she got it! I's like a story book. Dang, I wish my grandmother or mother had quilted when I was small (or that I had children now for whom I could quilt)...
Envious greetings from the Rhine,

Your Nursery Quilt is adorable! I bet your granddaughter will love it!!

Your strawberries are so sweet. I love the idea of mixing appliqué with stitching

Your Nursery Rhyme quilt is so lovely.... and the quilting is great!! especially for your first attempt at machine quilting!!! - I'm still stuck on squiggling and meandering! Your granddaughter is a very lucky little girl to have this special present from her grandmother, something to cherish forever!

Wat een mooie quilt is het geworden en wat heb je het prachtig doorgequilt op de machine. Daar zal je kleindochter heel erg blij mee zijn. Je CWDQ blok is ook al zo mooi, ook prachtig geappliceerd.

Wat een mooi blok en de steeltjes geborduurd geeft het wat unieks.
Wat is die quilt mooi geworden. Echt geweldig en je kleindochter gaat hem vast mooi vinden. Wat heb je hem mooi doorgequilt. Een kompliment hoor !!!

Hello Jane,

Congratualtions on your granddaughter's birthday! I wish I could have seen her face when receiving this quilt from you ... You must have had loads of kisses and hugs :) What a lovely idea she will sleep under it, heerlijk!
Those strawberries are so sweet and real as well, wow! You make such beautiful things!!! I am curious already to see the next block.
I didn't have any time the last days and I ache to make some stitches, but I fear there won't be much time this weekend (birthdays)... my time will come again ...

Have a great weekend!
Groetjes, Carolien

Sweet quilt and I so love your CWB block. That one has been sitting on my sewing table waiting for me for far too long now.

Your Civil War Bride Quilt block is lovely. I like that you used different fabrics other than green for the leaves.
