Happy flower quilts

Irene escaped from hot Portuguese summer weather and visiting her sister in the Netherlands. Her sister Marry send us an email about their work. Both sisters love shopping together and making crafts and quilting together. JB
Irene asked me to send you some pictures of our project that we are very busy with.
Yesterday we spent all day and evening to trace
the flowers on fusible webbing and then iron it on the fabric, all scraps
from me, after that cutting all the shapes out and iron it on the background
fabric. It was a lot of work, this morning we finished the blocks (15) and
now we can start embroider the shapes with a blanket stitch (by hand!!!!)
and after that we have to make 9-patch blocks as you can see on the picture
of the pattern. That we will do by machine of course. So this is just to let
you know that Irene is still busy here.

We send more pictures later.
By the way, her blocks are with the lighter background. The others are mine.

Happy quilting greetings,
Marry Top-van Es
