Boerenbont

I found some darker blue ribbon for my boerenbont applique. I was also considering doing it in embroidery, but when I made a sampler up, I definitely liked the ribbon better. I still have to blanket stitch the petals and leaves, but I thought I would show you the progress. I also borrowed from my mom, a saucer with the boerenbont pattern on it for reference. I put it in the photo so you can see what boerenbont looks like. Most people have seen Delft blue patterns, but many have never seen the boerenbont.

WOW, they sure look nice. How did you put the ribbon on? I know the design as well, I have seen some like that in France too (maybe imported) but you gave me an idea.
In Brittany, where I come from, we have got a distinctive pottery tradition with special designs. Maybe my 254 th next project!

I have some of this pottery that my Mom gave me. I wasn't aware of the name. Thanks. It makes a nice applique.

This quilt is coming along beautifully. I really like the way you made the leaves larger and more dramatic. Lovely.
