I started working on this quilt after I moved back to the Netherlands in November 2011 at the Quilterij in Den Bosch. Françoise Maarse made the design of this little mystery quilt called "Little Carrousel". Yesterday evening I finished stitching the binding by hand. Still have to put a label at the back.
This flower was modified by me to make it into the perfect "Françoise flower". A lot happened since I worked on the first blocks...... The Quilterij moved to Vught, I moved to my permanent home, I found a job as a boardmember of the Quiltersgilde and together with five lovely ladies we started our quilt bee the "Vughtse Stuckjes" every other week. I have the feeling after finishing this project, I must change the title of my blog..... Instead of "expat quilter returns home" it should be "expat quilter feels at home". It feels like I have lived in Vught all my life!! Thank you dear friends to make me feel so at home. Happy quilting, Rose-Anne
