This colourful baby quilt was inspired by the windmills in the Netherlands, my home country. I used the colours of the Dutch flag; red, white and blue; and one orange square as a reference to the Dutch Royal House of Orange.
The patterned fabrics are cut from authentic Dutch ‘farmers handkerchiefs’ (boerenzakdoeken), sent to me by my mother-in-law and my best friend in Holland (they are also available here).
The quilt was made as a project for the Australian magazine Creative Expressions, and I’m very proud that it made the cover!
The pattern is now available in my Craftsy pattern shop here.
