After a long very indecisive period of looking at lots of fabric ranges, I have finally decided what I will use for the Logcabin.
I knew I wanted to use red and beige colours. I’m in a red & white phase.
Mirjam and I went to Zutphen.
We first had a lovely afternoon tea with scones, clotted cream & jam. Sadly, I didn’t take any photos of this special event. Most likely because I was distracted by the fact that one of the other customers asked me to take some pictures of them. They were not easily satisfied. I took about 8 pictures before they were content. Why are women so self-consciousness? It is hard getting two women looking like they want themselves to be perceived by others.
Anyway, Mirjam and I enjoyed our afternoon tea at the Pelican (De Pelikaan). Next time, we will have to order a proper English afternoon tea in advance. You are then able to get little sandwiches, pastries and other little cakes with your tea. There is some history here. This tea & coffee shop opened its doors in 1816.
And guess where we ended up afterwards? Naturally, we continued our short walk to the quilt shop Petra Prins.
We were welcomed by Bep, Gerda and an American lady (who’s name I don’t know).
Gerda recognized me and tried to tempt me into making the Dear Jane. Above some ladies showed their efforts. Wow, I am impressed and very tempted. Even Mirjam, nearly bought some fabric to start making some Dear Jane blocks.
I did buy ‘Gerda’s Treat’. A lovely small Dresden plate quilt.
See the lovely red & beige fabrics above? These are for the Logcabin quilt I’m going to make. I’m finally in Patchwork & Quilting year 6. Every fortnight, for the next couple of months, I will have a patchwork & quilt class and will learn to make the Logcabin.
