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.

"Catalina's Paradise" Quilt
Hij is dus af! Echt waar. Ik kan het zelf nog niet goed geloven.....helemaal gemaakt met needleturn applique en hand gequilt. Het was zelfs even windstil vanmorgen, dus gauw even in de lijn gehangen. It is really finished. I can't really believe it myself....all made with needleturn applique, and hand quilted. This morning it was windstill, so I could hang it in the washing line.
Hoewel ik een heleboel close-up fotos heb gemaakt, zijn ze niet mooi geworden, de zon kwam tevoorschijn! Een filmpje ging trouwens wel, dus als je alle blokken van wat dichterbij wilt zien, klik dan hier.
Although I took a lot
of close-up pictures, the sun came out, and they did not work well! It was possible to take a video, however, so if you want to see that, click here.
Toch wil ik jullie de fotos niet onthouden, want de zon schijnt nog steeds, en tussendoor regent het! Hier zijn ze, steeds van links naar rechts: But I will show you the photos anyway, because the sun is still shining, and when it doesn't, it rains! Here they are, every row from left to right:
Misschien is dit mijn favoriete blok...
Perhaps this is my favorite block....
Of dit gedeelte... Or this little picture...
Omdat paars Catalina's favoriete kleur is, heb ik de achterkant van paarse stof gemaakt, en ook de binding. En nee hoor, labeltje niet vergeten!!! Because purple is Catalina's favourite colour, I put a purple backing on the quilt, and a purple binding. And no, I did not forget the label!!!
Wat kan ik nu allemaal niet gaan doen????? Volgende keer meer. Fijne dag! Just think of all the quilts I can make now???? More next time. Have a nice day! Jane
Hello, welcome to my blog! My name is Jane. I was born in Holland, but have been in Britain for more than 30 years.
I am a Christian, and love Biblestudy, reading, writing, painting, quilting, embroidery, spinning, weaving, gardening and classical music, especially J.S.Bach.

"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind." Job 12:7-10
