Petra Prins and An Moonen - Promenade in a Dutch Garden.

Once again, Quiltmania did an outstanding job.
The house of Petra Prins and An Moonen was a delight!!
So typically Dutch!
As are the quilts, and of course, those tulips!!
Just look at the colors! Sure to inspire a new quilt!

This was one of my favourite quilts in the house.

And those hour glass blocks. Something just so timeless about them.
Want to see closer??
Don't forget to click on the photos!
The fabrics are stunning.


So much quilty goodness!

The fabrics in the quilt below are from Petra and Nel's new fabric range.

A closer look!


Some amazing fussy cutting!


Here is An proudly showing the 2 books she has written.
This little one captured my heart.
l can see one in my future real soon!
Promenade in a Dutch Garden.
A must in your library.
For both the beautiful pictures and the
 quilty inspiration between the pages.

And if seeing the pictures is not enough,
 come visit us at Quilts In The Barn this year.
27th, 28th 29th September 2013.
Petra, Nel and An are going to be our guest Exhibitors,
and all these quilts, plus lots more will be part of the exhibition.
And l for one can't wait to stand in front of these
 quilts again and gaze at the fabrics!!!
Thanks for visiting.

  10. Wow--what wonderful eye candy! I've made the little Dutch doll quilt when the pattern was published in American Patchwork and Quilts, but I can see I am going to need one of those books!

  11. I feel I haven't seen several in real life although I was there. I love the 3d and 7th from the top. I want to make that one, the contained chaotic one.

  12. Beautiful quilts. I wish I could see them in person, because it's obvious even from the pictures that they are fabulous.:)
