I LOVE Dutch fabrics. Maybe LOVE isn't even a strong enough description...Obsessed?
When I bought "A History of Dutch Quilts" by An Moonen I savored every page - so of course when she and Petra Prins published "Promenade in a Dutch Garden" I was all in. Their deep, rich textile heritage is evident!
I've been working my way through the books making several of the quilts. I have more on the bucket list and stacks of Dutch fabrics to pull from.
This is my top with the borders I finally decided on.
I decided the larger scale light chintz is what I liked best.
I chose a light cream solid back that looks like linen.
The batting is a first for me, "Quilters Dream Angel"
Request: Thinnest loft preferred by hand quilters
I won't get to it until I have Harrison Rose quilted.
The top is layered and ready when I am.
This quilt has wonderful details.
A mix of blocks.
The wonderful center star.
I chose fabrics to match the antique shown on the cover of An's book.
You can see more of my finished Dutch inspired quilts HERE.
You can find wonderful Dutch fabrics HERE. Including the harder to find Dutch Heritage STRIPES.
Have a great week!
