Not only patchwork




Oh yes, beside quilting I work also on this project, it will keep me busy during some month's.


The crosses are over one threat and just to tell you, one square is about 3,25 inch and +/- 100 x 100 stitches.


The whole project is called village of Hawk Run Hollow from Carriage House Design and contains 12 squares in total, ............. now you can imagine what's waiting for me.

Yes, Lucy got me, the message on her blog about this quilt put a spell on me.

Decided to join the round of quilters for this masterpiece.
But I had a hard time finding the special old fashioned fabrics as not many of the quiltshops overhere have them in their range.
I decided to visit a very unique shop and I was lucky, found some great repro fabrics, but I opted for different colors than the ones used in the original quilt.
If you ever go to Belgium, close to the border of France and Luxemburg, go and visit this shop, the owner is more than nice and there is an incredibable choice.

That's all for now.
