A finish, squares, hearts and some doubt

Thanks so much for all your compliments and wonderful comments on the "dollie blankie" from last post. Crochet these little squares is such fun. It's also a lovely little work to cary along in my bag. I can crochet in the car (on the passenger seat ofcourse), out in the sun or while having a break. I can even watch tv and chrochet at the same time. Once I've enough squares I sew them into a blanket, maybe a larger size this time.

According to the weather forecast this weekend will be sunny and warm. Perfect weather for doing some work in the garden. I bought this hydrangea for on the terrace. Perfect pink!

More pink... I'm not sure yet how to make this mini quilt. Are the green hearts to green...should I add more color, blue maybe?

In de tijd dat ik stof aan het bestellen ben ga jij alweer heel wat slagvaardiger te werk! Ik vind je hollandse rood-wit-blauw nine patch prachtig. Je nieuwe mini quilt vind ik ook weer heel mooi worden. Ik vind niet dat er meer kleur in moet, het is nu zo mooi op elkaar afgestemd. Soms denk je iets mooier te maken, doe je een hoop werk en achteraf zie je dat het eigenlijk eenvoudiger beter was...Maar ja, achteraf wijsheid is altijd gemakkelijk natuurlijk. Geniet van het mooie weer het weekend!

the green hearts look great, not too green at all.
the pink hydrangea brings a lovely colour contrasting with its green leaves.

Lovely, lovely nine patches! Everything is sooooo pretty. Love the hydrangea. I don't think I've ever seen one quite so pink!

I like the green hearts, it adds a nice contrast to the pink! The Dutch quilt is very nice!! You are very talented!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Corry, This is where I come for inspiration and never leave disappointed! I like the green hearts, but I think pink would make for a softer look. I hate when it is hard to decide! Your afghan blocks have been inspiring me to keep up with mine. Little did I know that you would be finished so quickly, and I would still be months away! A happy weekend to you! Elizabeth

Ik sluit me aan bij de rest en vind de groene harten juist mooi passen.

Trouwens je grote quilt is ook erg mooi geworden.....

Ppffffff....ik moet mezelf ook weer eens een schop onder mijn kont geven, wat betreft mijn quilt.....jarenplan vrees ik!

Liefs,
Maureen

Hej ik wordt er jaloers van hoor, wat ben jij handig op dit gebied, ben blij dat ik een sjaal kan breien en een gordijn kan naaien op dit vlak hahaha... geef mij maar een grote kast! Kom dan even bij je inspiratie opdoen hoor.

Fijne avond!

Not too green!. Love your nine-patch in the red, white and blue. And I am jealous of your crochet. My mother gave up on trying to teach me :-)

Anne Marie said...

ik vind die tere kleuren perfect!

Hello Corry, I am just catching up still. Lots of really wonderful crafting going on at your place.. I love each and every thing.
I'm just brand new to machine quilting too, and I think making straight lines is even harder than making squiggles. You did a beautiful job on the nine-patch.

And your crochet is darling! Luca is going to love wrapping her baby doll in that, once she is old enough not to be the baby doll herself. :-) Crocheting is a lot of fun, and so mobile!

I LOVE your checks and stripes quilt .... perfect for a little boy.

I love the Dutch quilt :)

Jantine said...

Je miniquilt kleuren zijn geweldig, maar dat was je vast al wel door meer mensen verteld, hoop dat je er al mee verder gegaan bent! En je delfts blauwe quilt is ook erg leuk geworden!

Bertie said...

The hearts and squares quilt are just wonderful and in my eyes a perfect combination (but beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course) I love your other quilts too, such vibrant colours.
