book! Petra’s passion for her Dutch heritage is imbued in
every fiber of the fabric collections she designs, as well as
in her quilts. Teaming up with her longtime friend and quilter, Nel Kooiman, Petra has devoted her craft to the art of antique reproduction fabrics. Her new book with Quiltmania is a collection of 18 warm and refined quilts using fabrics from her Dutch Heritage collection and is comprised of Petra’s favorite designs. Embracing her heritage, Petra has created true beauty with some of the very essentials: Dutch hexagon patterns, diamonds, hourglasses, windmills, 9-patches, flying geese, log cabins, tumbling blocks...and more! All of your favorite techniques are included, from English Paper Piecing, Broderie Perse, appliqué and fussy cutting. And there is no shortage of sumptuous reproduction fabrics to choose from - Delft blues and Chintz are just some of the choices for your Medallions!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with traditional Dutch quilts, Petra has included a chapter to walk you through specific techniques, including a “Made in the Netherlands” finish! This book is a journey back in time for your creative hands and eyes to relish for years to come!
