Simon - a quilt from Petra Prins

I have been gathering fabric, mostly Josephine by Moda's French General, to make a Simon quilt [1775-1800] as reproduced by Petra Prins in her lovely book, Promenade in a Dutch Garden.

Since the original quilt is only 62" x 76", I have added 2 rows of hour glass blocks to each side and top and bottom, to better fit my bed.
I first scanned the quilt diagram x2 and cut and taped in new rows and scanned and reprinted. I now have a model from which to begin my quilt.


New size.

BTW: the lovely pink, red and white stripe you see at the top of the box is what I will use for sashing borders.
