After everybody had gone home I started to work on this quilt. I had some of the pictures printed on fabric, a first for me. The blue fabrics I used for the piecing and appliqque were choosen to give it a feel of the old tiles we had in our kitchen
The walls were covered with old Delft's blue tiles, some with fancy flowers. Later, when the front of the farm was replaced, some of these tiles were incorporated into the new hall.
The lettering I did with reverse applique, also a first for me. The leaves are embroidered. It was quilted by my mother-in-law Hilda Mae. I finished it a year after the celebration and had it shipped over to Holland, where it has hung in my parent's bedroom ever since.
When my mother passed away in January I took it home with me and now it hangs in our bedroom.
