Team Netherlands

We would like to introduce ourselves to all the Round Robin members.

Our names are: Rita Visscher, Marleen Wijn , Inge Schoonderwoerd (back row)
Jeanne Hamers and Nan de Nijs (front row).

We are all on the board of the Dutch Quiltersgilde, an association with approx. 14.000 members in the Netherlands.  The work that we do for the Quiltersgilde is very busy, and sometimes we do not have time to quilt. The challenge to participate in this Round Robin gives us the opportunity to create 5 very different quilts and we are now in the process of creating the border round the centerpiece.  We all are more or less experienced quilters / teachers. We really enjoy this project very much and we hope that you all have fun in creating these quilts.
