Happy to say it's coming in like a LAMB.... come on Spring....

every quilt tells a story...

  5. So gorgeous - just seem to get better and better!

  6. Dear Doreen, Hello from my little country village in Belgium :))
    I just discovered your blog, and I want to thank you for the inspiration and the incntive you give me to pick back my Dutch Treat quilt (started 2 years ago, and quite neglected, lately)...
    As you say : every quilt tells a story. My mother passed away 22 years ago, and I always wanted to make a quilt in her memory. It took me years to really focus on that special project : the sorrow was still vivid, and I couldn't concentrate properly on mom's quilt... Yet, I knew from the start that it would be the Dutch Treat, because my mother was of Dutch origin, and it was like a tribute to her.
    I finally started the quilt in 2014, with a stronger and peaceful heart, and have made 49 blocks so far...
    Many other projects kept me busy in the meantime, and there are still lots of UFO's on my working table, but I really want to get back to Dutch Treat with all my heart, and your project of making 8 blocks each month is something I can achieve :)) So, I'm with you in this Journey, and I'll keep reading your posts with great pleasure !
    I LOVE your green/blue back fabric (Batik?). I'm using indigo/Delft back fabrics on a white background.
    You're very welcomed on my blog "Notes from my Corner", which is pretty new as I was hacked on my previous one ("Friendship Threads" created back in 2006) - therefore the reason why you won't see any of my Dutch Treat blocks yet... but I'll soon be posting some.

    I'm sorry, Doreen, for this long post, but I promise some shorter comments in the future.

    In stitches,

    PS : I LOVE your Dutch Treat big grid, as well as your February picture with the 8 blocks you made !

  7. I just love your blocks! They look so much like Tile Quilt blocks! (I'm also working on some Tile Quilt blocks...).
    Looking forward to the whole quilt!
    Love from the Netherlands, Ria.
