Hello all!

Here is my "mini quilt". I have a Delft Collection in my kitchen and decided to make a mini quilt that fit into that theme. This was my first quilting project ever (as is apparent with the wobbly boarder... Grin)

Sorry the pictures aren't so great!









I'll post a pic later with the mini quilt in my kitchen!!

This was fun and easy!

*hugs*

So pretty! I'm not sure what Delft is but the blues and whites are very cool!

Delft is a type of porcelain painted in Holland (hence the windmill pattern)...it was my grandma's.

Here's an example:

It's marked by certain blue paint on white porcelain. There are dishes, houses, pottery and more, and I fell into the collection. I'll take some pics of the ones in my kitchen tonight!
