Another Baltimore top sandwiched

e After finishing her first quilt, Annelies choose to make the Baltimore Hearts & Flowers of Kim McLean. This week her top got sandwiched with help from the 100 Rozen tuesday group. And yes, I managed to make a picture of her lovely quilt. And this is the place to share the picture with you.

Chapeau for Annelies! She makes her quilts all by hand. She started with this one in february 2012.

Next Hearts & Flowers รก la Kim McLean course starts 28 September.

Watercolor with roses

Thanks to 'Het Quiltersgilde' and Irene for the beautiful illustrated story in 'Quiltnieuws mei 2012' about making a watercolor/watercolour with roses.

Time to make ourselfs a new one. From the left overs I made a pin cushion.

We also do courses. Want to meet at a course, please check-in via the webshop.

Continued .. Trapezium blocks, how I did it

Let's take 4 strips of 6,25 cmx110cm (2,5inch x 40inch). Sew the strips together along the long side of the strips.
So now you have one piece of 110 cm x 21 cm.
Than iron the second sewline open and fold it with the good sides towards eachother. Leave the first and third sewline as the are.

Fold all strips over the sewlines upon eachother. Now you have 1 strip of 4 layers with a length of 110 cm ready to cut with the 10 degree ruler.
