Roses from the past

Last week I took the fabric of this quilt to look how the pattern was en how large each piece of fabric must be. I cut all the fabric on the right lenght and started to sew. I always make my quilts by hand and not on the machine. Here is a update of the quilt. I'm almost half done with the borders. 3 sides has now 3 borders and 1 side has 4 borders. I hope to sew a bit more today.
Last weekend my daughter came with her friend and my son came with his girlfriend to celebrate my birthday and they gave me a Dutch quiltbook: The history of the Dutch quilt from An Moonen. They knew I wanted this book for a long time but never bought it for myself. But now I have it and it is a wonderful book !!
