My Staphorst Quilt
- part 3 -
Today the last part, a bit late because I was in bed with the flu. First of all I like to thank you for your comments, I had fun writing this story! And Caro, you are right, Staphorst is in Overijssel. I always thought so too but changed it after reading a book on traditional costumes.......
Today I show you some blocks with daily wear which is much more colorful.
The next pictures are of some "kraplappen", the upper "kraplap" is for a woman, the one beyond is for a girl.
The last picture is of the backside of the quilt, the sleeve is also made from different fabrics.
The quilt is made of 10 rows of 8 blocks of 24 x 24 cm, which is a bit smaller than 10"x 10 ".
It is handsewn and handquilted with kobalt blue cotton quiltyarn.
The name of the quilt is:
"Blauw en groen, boerenfatsoen",
a litteral translation: blue and green, farmers decency.
