I've been cheating ...

Last week I was busy making an extremely quick quilt for my in-laws.
They spent the weekend here and they love sleeping under a quilt. They're used to sleeping in a forrest. Well ... it's not really a forrest but a part of Eindhoven where the houses were built in the forrest; so a forrest with plenty houses.
So I thought after 'Orange, Rosa, Blue' I could make a really quick quilt by cheating.
I bought this:

Annie's Patchwork in Yellow, from Annie's Farm Stand by Hollie Holderman for Lakehouse Dry Goods, 100% Cotton Fabric, bought here

A backing from Ikea + batting from my local shop.
I usually buy the Hobbs iron-on batting, because it's so easy to work with.
I was working along nicely, had time on my side. But then I had another migraine: in bed, on the couch, sleeping and not sleeping. Taking pills that take ages to work ....
And I wanted to Quilt this Thing!
I finished it Saturday: quilting, binding, washing & drying it.

The tent in the garden was for my youngest daughter who turned 19 yesterday: Hurray!!
She wanted some privacy with her boyfriend, perhaps?
Anyway, the weather was good and the guestroom was taken by my in-laws: so GREAT!

This is my first day without medication and tomorrow (hopefully)  my head wil be clear again.

Have a great week!


  1. I love that fabric! There isn't an item in Annies Farm Stand that I don't like. Your quilt is beautiful!

  2. Hope you're feeling better soon.

    The quilt looks quite complicated in the picture with the tent!

  3. Looks fabulous. I've got some of that fabric - hadn't thought of actually quilting it. Works extremely well :)

  4. Hi! :) I found your blog through the RPQ blog list. Love the quilt!
