Ria sent along a couple of photos of her beautiful Sisters Choice quilt she has worked on --- check out those beautiful fabrics!
Ria lives in the Netherlands, and her quilt does bring to mind tulips in the spring, doesn’t it?
Hope you have so much fun and satisfaction at your teaching trip! I try to keep up with all your blog posts.... and what a treat they are!
And I want to tell you that I have (finally... ....) finished my Sister’s Choice Quilt!
The first quilt that was quilted by my new machine quilt frame.... and I L*O* V*E it!!!!!
The name of the quilt will be: “de KoningsQuilt” (in Dutch). In English it would be called “the King’s Quilt”.I made it last year as Willem Alexander was crowned King of the Netherlands. I thought it a great way to remember this event by.
And as this is one of your beautiful pattern, I just had to send you some pictures. I still have to bind it, but that will be a great task one of these evenings.
I also wrote about it on my blog: http://treasurequilts.blogspot.nl/2014/03/hoe-snel-de-tijd-kan-gaan-how-quickly.html
Thanks so much for all that you do! And your lovely patterns!
I have all of your books and will be sure to get an example of your new leader and ender-book. It will be a treasure to ad to the other ones!
Love from the Netherlands and a huge hug,I love the tradition of making a quilt to memorialize something in our lives. The installation of a new king is a big deal, and I’m sure this information will be included on her label.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful quilt finish with us, Ria!

Quilt-Cam TONIGHT! 9pm Eastern. Dig up an old UFO and let’s see if we can get some progress made on it. I’m not sure what I’m digging out yet – I’ve been tackling mail all day trying to get my feet back on the ground, but I’m in the mood to sew something ---hmmmm..what can I find around here?
See you back here in just a bit!
