I love quilts, especially antique quilts, either applique or pieced,
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.
I would love it if you left a comment.

Mary Simon and a small sheep

Last night, after 7 months I finally finished my 4th Mary Simon block. All the memories of the move from Scotland are stitched into it...
I was very happy to find exactly the right fabric for the eye of the little bird on the left.

Then the postman called and there was a sweet little sheep from Holland, with a postcard of a place that has many memories. Thank you, Carolien!

It is now time to try and finish the border of the Nursery Rhyme quilt...!!
Enjoy your day!
Jane

Wat een prachtig geappliceerd blok en wat een mooie siggie. Het blok lijkt me niet een van de makkelijkste.

Hello Jane,

What a beauty, that cornucopia (al klinkt 'hoorn des overvloeds' ook altijd wel prachtig ...)! I love that purple fabric, with the effect of those waves, beautiful! Mouth open for me, as a novice quilter. You're a master in applique!
I am glad my little sheep has arrived safely, I know he will be happy at your place :)
I hope you enjoy the last work on that lovely quilt for your granddaughter.

Bye & hugs, Carolien

Hi Jane, ik vind de kleuren die je gebruikt fantastisch! Ik word zo geprikkeld door jouw Baltimores dat ik eindelijk de knoop heb doorgehakt en met een ga beginnen.
