vogeltjes (birds) quilt

DSCF0109


Here are some pictures of the quilt I talked about in my previous post.
The books of Jean Ray Laury inspired me to make this quilt. I started with one little bird, I just had followed an appliqué course and really liked the technique. I had no intention to make a quilt out of it. But after bird one was done I made another bird and another one. I just could'nt stop. Slowly it became a quilt. I planted a appletree in the middle. The border with the flowers was real fun to make. I love all the round shapes.
The fabrics I used for the triangles and the border are a replica from an old dutch chintz. I bought these by “the Haan en Wagemakers’. Applique, sewing and quilting is all done by hand.
This quilt was also shown at the yearly quiltshow of the Dutch quilters society. I was so proud!!

My daughter gave the quilt a beautiful place in her home.

I made a personal label on the back of the quilt in cross-stitch.

Your quilt is beautiful. The birds are darling. I've never done an applique quilt myself - all that work - but yours just may inspire me to try something similar. Great job!

Oh Corry, I love your quilt! the tree in the center is just lovely and the photo of it hanging in the kitchen reminded me of my old boyfriend's parents' house-- they are Dutch and their kitchen was full of brightly colored fabrics. It's so strange that your quilt would bring back that memory for me.
Thank you for sharing.

I'm a Jean Ray Laurie fan, and I think your quilt is a beautiful interpretation. I've used those bird shapes for Christmas ornaments to give away. Thank you for the lovely pictures & inspiration!
