Most birds have embroidered eyes, not this one. The fabric was just in the right place for this little bird. It made me happy when this happens.
This 'Foep' quilt has crazy borders. The original borders are beautiful, all made out of lace but I found my borders needed more colour for an overall balance. Crazy borders with a chicken found at a thrift shop.
Lots of ric-rac and other ribbons, fun for the children who will be sitting under this quilt. Probably my sister's grandchildren if they want too.
Some fabrics are a bit old like the brown one with flowers from the 90's, some new quilt fabrics, some from thrift shops like the dark blue shirt fabric...
Fabric pocket on the back of the quilt, for the book about 'Foep' the cat.
With Oscar of course. Always helpful.
The sun was a bit bright for taking pictures but I wanted to post about the 'Foep' quilt today and not wait another day;)
If you want to make the quilt too (and order the little book to read to little children) you can find the pattern here (available in English too)
