First row of the potpourri quilt

Do you remember the fabrics I showed you a few messages back?

Wel ... I started with this quilt.
The originel name of the Dutch pattern is "Celine" but I have changed it into "Potpourri" because its a mixture of fabric, stitching pieces and some lace and .... I found it a realy good name for this quilt.
The originel quilt was made with onlu red and white fabric but I have choose for a "antique" look.

Okay ... the first 5 blocks (of 30) are finished and sew together
(click on photo's to enlarge)

Here a close-up of the blocks on the left and in the  middle

And here the blocks on the right

Here you see the first of 10 stitching pieces that will go into the quilt; a small scissor
On the other block I sew a piece of lace

Today its also my husband Michiel birthday, so
HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweetheart !!
