Hanny sandwiched her Balti-much-more quilt too

This beauty is really huge! The size is 2 x 3 meters. We call this in Dutch a 'joekel van een quilt'. To sandwich this one you really need space. So Hanny did this with us in the shop.
If you have a big one to sandwich, please contact us for help or hire the sticks to do this at home.
On Saturday the 18th of June, Quilt in Public Day, you can see demonstrations of sandwiching with a group. To sandwich your quilt in a group you need some roles. These are the roles to sandwich in a group:
  • Steering lady/gent distributing the roles, guiding during the process
  • Yarn distributing lady/gent
  • Two or three pairs of threading ladies/gents
  • Catering lady/gent for having a break now and then.

100 rozen picks up the quilting thread again

The Roses quilt with Japanese blocks remains a challenge. Not for the Japanese puzzle. We fixed that a long time ago. Our challenge is in the quilting. We started to sew with the machine. At the backside we used water soluble yarn, so the quilt can be shown now and later on we can solve the machine stitching.

We prefer to quilt the Roses quilt by hand. This quilt contains a lot of our rose fabrics collection. That is why Magda and Jeltje started to hand quilt, block by block. After four blocks it stagnated. And of course, as a customer told me, this quilt is not yet good enough for showing in the shop.

So after clearing up the garden and buying some plants, the garden is ready to have us for quilting.

Hereby we also declare the garden open for our Open Atelier customers.

Hearts and Flowers by Marjan

Marjan's Hearts and Flowers quilt is sandwiched now

Today Marjan's Baltimore quilt was sandwiched during the Open Atelier. Done in the blink of an eye with the help of Carlies, Hanny, Henk, Jacqueline, Magda, Marjan, and Jeltje.

Amazing what you can do together in so little time.

Also two people of TV Oost were here to film today. Maybe you will see us in the broadcast about Deventer Koekstad on 17th of June .
Want to make this quilt too, or want help sandwiching? Please, do come around at 18th of June at QUIP day for more info.

Quilt exhibition and quilt market in Cannenburgh, Vaassen

The cellar was cool today. At 17:00 hours we left the cellar and found out is was 34 degreed Celcius. Felt like leaving a plane in Ghana. than we realized it was far to hot to visit Vaassen for a lot of quilters. Sunday it will be better with around 24 degrees.

Of course we hope to see you on sunday 5 june in Vaassen, kasteel Cannenburgh, or with QUIP Quilt in Public day at saturday 18 june.
On Quip day one of the Baltimore groups will give a demonstration of sandwiching a quilt. They will do this together like it is described in one of Jennifer Chiaverini best-selling Elm Creek Quilts novels.

You can join QUIP day for free in the Walstraat, Deventer by reserving via 100rozen@quiltwebshop.nl

Golf and Quilt top for the Naked Bed Challenge ...

At June 1st, the top of the 'Golf and Quilt'-quilt for the Naked Bed Challenge had to be finished. Yet some appliqués still need to be added. For instance a few puts and balls are missing.
I think it will suit the occasion to do a bit of appliqué at the exhibition in Kasteel Cannenburgh in Vaassen (between Apeldoorn and Zwolle). We hope to meet you in the cellar of the castle.

Liesbeth from Frederiksoord organized the quilt exhibition and the area for the quiltshops. Thank you, Liesbeth, it all looks beautiful in Kasteel Cannenburgh in Vaassen.
