Back From Vacation

Just got back yesterday from our wonderful week in Belgium and Holland. I did manage to stop briefly in a quilt shop in Amsterdam and I pick up a pattern with canal houses on it. They had the quilt on the wall of the shop and my husband really fell in love with it. Fabrics were pretty pricey so I only bought the pattern. Besides my husband does not have a lot of patience when it comes to visiting quilt shops so I did not want to spend any time really looking. If I had been there by myself I would have looked a lot more. Probably would have bought a lot more as well!

Here is a link to a blog about the pattern and a photo of the quilt.

Welcome back Chris. That was a very cool quilt. I'll be interested in seeing how it looks when you make it up.

I suppose school starts for you soon. And, maybe you'll be quilting a bit more too and posting! I've missed your posts. B.

Oh yes, quiltfabrics are real expensive over here. I almost never buy fabrics, just plain white for dying.
And yes, where are the rest of your holiday pictures, I would really like to know what you took pictures of when in the country where I live.
