An early Country Christmas.....

Spring is definately in the air here but still it an early Country Christmas as I finished my quilt at the beginning of February. Another UFO can be crossed off my list...woohoo!

Lente is in de lucht maar bij ons is het nog een klein beetje kerst. Begin februari heb ik mijn laatste steekje in mijn quilt gezet. Een affo voor mijn lijst!


This quilt was fun to do. I loved doing the quilting freehand to give it a country feeling. I did use a hera marker to be sure I got my lines in the outer borders from point to point. If you have never used one, I can highly recommend it. I even use them for tracing quilt stencils onto my quilts. 

Wat een leuke quilt project was dit! Ik heb het met de vrije hand gequilt. Echter heb ik een hera marker gebruikt om te zorgen dat ik goed in de hoek uitkwam voor de buitenste border maar verder alles gewoon gequilt zonder lijnen om een "landelijke sfeer" te houden in het quilten. 


I sometimes think I would like to quilt with only homespun fabrics. They give such a pretty country feel. 

Geweven stoffen zijn geweldig om te gebruiken...meteen een landelijk gevoel in de quilt.
