I have recently quilted a beautiful sampler quilt for my customer Jenny. Jenny's quilt is named "Zutphen" after the location of Petra Prins' Patchwork & Quilting Shop in the Netherlands. Jenny was lucky enough to visit Petra's shop and purchased the pattern "Project Rood". Petra regards the pattern more a layout rather than a pattern with individual blocks coming from several now famous quilts including "Dear Jane", "Nearly Insane", "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler" and "The Civil War Diary Quilt". Jenny included nine additional blocks to make the quilt rectangular rather than square.
Zuthpen has 50 blocks which are 6inches square each. As Jenny loves feathers I incorporated feathers wherever possible including a lovely feather in the sashing.
This Dresden Plate block is one of my favourites:-

I love Jenny's border too:-
Congratulations Jenny on completing a beautiful quilt and thank you for letting me quilt it - I had a wonderful time working on your quilt.
