Material Obsession

I'm started with a new quilt. My daughter like to have one for on her bed. She has a orange wall and we bought a lot of bright coloured fabric. I'm making a quilt out of my new book; Material Obsession and it's named Annie's Garden. It has a lot of flowers and love hearts. This is a easy applique quilt, but with a lot of work involved. The result is worth the effort.

It is a good quilt to make in the summer, you can sit outside in the sun and make a new flower.

But first I have to prepare all the bits and pieces so it will take a little while before I can sit and make a flower.

If I look at all the fabric and the colours, I start smiling. They make me happy!

Prachtige kleuren, laat je het zien als je een stukje af hebt? Zo grappig dat jij over de zomer begint terwijl wij nu naar de herfst toe gaan.
Groetjes Heidi

De stoffen zien er al geweldig uit! Dus met de quilt moet het helemaal goed gaan komen. Ben benieuwd!
Ik heb je getagged... Als je zin hebt dan kan je op mijn blog kijken wat de bedoeling is.

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
