With Love from Ria!


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?

She writes:

Hi Bonnie,
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!
