Rosy, but Bigger.

Op 15 november 2008 om 13.30 uur zal de grote Kaffe Fassett Quilt aan de scheve toren 'de Oldehove' te Leeuwarden worden gehangen door de heren Kaffe Fassett en Marco Florijn, wethouder van Leeuwarden.

Huh? You don't understand? Well, somewhere in the Netherlands there was a big patchwork show and they made this Kaffe Fasset designed quilt, called 'Rosy', from his and Liza Lucy's first book, in the XXXXXL size! Quite amazing, eh? More about it here- Oldehove Quilt. But don't bother if you don't read Dutch.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: My old virtual friend Kay took the time to run the site through Google translator and here are the results. (She is my old friend because she is friends with my elementary school best friend- we found this out accidentally. We almost met last year, maybe it will be real sometime soon.) This translation, btw, is hysterical- am sure that it will be fodder for many posts to come.
