Dutch Heritage Block

A new project has been started.
 I have cut the first of 2 boxes of Dutch Heritage fabric bought at Amsterdam's "Den Haan & Wagenmakers" shop and the Open European Quilt Convention in Maastricht, The Netherlands. 
The pattern/fabric designed by Petra Pins.

 Very different fabric from the Civil War and Reproductions that I used for my Mitsi quilt.
Hand piecing and will join the blocks by machine. When I met Petra, she was using a pale blue for the background, I chose lemon for something different.
Unfortunately the lemon fabric frays.

  1. Bold move cutting those fabrics, worth is though as the block does them justice.
