Dutch Treat

The other day I went to my sewing room to start to declutter and finish some UFOs.
I decided to make a small runner with the few blocks I had made out of the Dutch Treat book which I started a long time ago but never went any further with them. So I started joining the 4 1/2" blocks together with a quarter inch sashing strip between the blocks. 3 across by 6 down making a total of 18 blocks. BUT when I saw them joined up in the strips I fell in love with them again and have now decided to make another 18 and see how I feel about them, keep going or stop.



Happy stitching.......

It is great when you come across something unexpected in your UFO's I can see why they have inspired you to do another 18. I also love the clog block.

Cheers Pauline

The Dutch Treat was made by members of Kilmore Quilters and they did amazing quilts. Keep it up. It will look lovely

Oh Helen your DT blocks look fabulous, you do need to keep going even a few at a time.
Of course the clog is my favourite. Must be my Dutch heritage...
