Klosje - Wall Hanging

This is what I came up with so far on my quilt design. This is an EQ drawing, and the klosje is 3" square.   The background is unbleached muslin. I may add a wider border to it, and I am debating on sashing.  The border I am showing is to represent the binding and is only 1/2".  This top is 19" square.

So, what do you think?


For great tutorials on how to do the klosje with the curved sides, check out Rose Marie's blog Applique n' Patch Quilting:

I like this setting it shows variety without it being to busy. I especially love the spools in the circle setting.

Great pattern. Interesting name: klosjes. Where does it come from? What motivated you to do this pattern? Can't wait to see the finished product.

Hi Teresa
I love the design you have come up with for your klosjes. It's going to make a great wall hanging. I've been doing some of the circle ones too and enjoy doing them so much.
