I completed this charming Dutch Treat back in July to give to my boyfriend’s mother, Judy. The project was made from a kit that I purchased at Fiddlesticks in Boulder City, Nevada back in April. It was a small project but the first one that I have completed where I did the binding the “correct way,” (meaning that I didn’t fold over the backing then bind on the front), and I did it without any help, so who knows if it was really done correctly!

 

I should have recorded the dimensions, but it was a relatively small project that Judy is using as kitchen table centerpiee and just happens to match PERFECTLY with a salad bowl that my boyfriend, David, gave her awhile back.

 

The front and back pictures of the Dutch Treat. I wish I had taken pictures of the salad bowl with it!

 

The sample that the professionals had at the Fiddlesticks Quilt Shop:

 

 

I think I did a decent job for a beginner. The kit was slightly different in that the binding was done with the green fabric instead of the yellow floral. The instructions were a bit different than the sample in a couple of places, so I did a combination of picture and instructions. I’d like to make more with this pattern…someday 🙂

 

EDITED TO ADD:

Judy sent me pictures of the centerpiece and salad bowl set that David had given her. I still can’t believe how perfectly they match!
