My Happy Place Row Along,
‘Vakantie in onze Chateau’

Toen ik opnieuw werd gevraagd om mee te doen aan de Row Along wist ik van vorig jaar nog wat er mij allemaal te wachten stond. Het zou een leuke maar drukke voorbereiding worden. Het is heel leuk om van over de hele wereld reacties te krijgen op je werk.
Dit jaar is het thema ‘My Happy Place’, mijn favoriete plek. Natuurlijk is dat achter de naaimachine, of achter de PC als ik aan het ontwerpen ben. Maar ik dacht dat al die ontwerpers er ook zo over zouden denken. Dus toen was de keus voor mij snel gemaakt. Naast alles wat met quilten te maken heeft mag ik ook heel graag ander knutselwerk doen. We hebben een hele oude caravan, een Chateau uit 1979, en ook daar mag ik graag aan klussen. Het hele interieur heeft al een verandering ondergaan. Wij zijn al vaak met deze caravan op pad geweest, de bergen zijn bij ons favoriet. Lange wandelingen maken en ‘s avonds genieten van de rust. Dat alles heb ik verwerkt in het patroon. Dit jaar stonden wij op camping La Tesa in Iseo (Italië).

My Happy Place Row Along

When I was asked to join the Row Along again, I knew it would going to be a busy though exciting time. It would be worth it because I really enjoy all these kind responses from all over the world.
And now, finally, here is my story about ‘My Happy Place’.

My most happy place is at the sewingmachine or at the PC, sewing and designing quilts. Because all the designers were supposed to tell their happy place, I expected a lot of sewing designs.
So then the choice for me was made quickly. Besides everything that is related to quilting, I also like to do other craftwork. We have a very old caravan (small trailer), a Chateau from 1979, and I also like to repair and renew this small house on wheels. The whole interior has already undergone a change. We have often been on the road with this caravan, the mountains are our favorite. We love to make long walks and enjoy the silence in the evening. Having all this in mind, I made this pattern. This year we were at camping La Tesa in Iseo (Italy).

Mijn foundation / paperpiecing patronen

Mijn foundationpatroon (paperpiecing) is 30 inch hoog en 10 inch breed. U kunt deze row eenvoudig aan laten sluiten bij andere rows door borders toe te voegen. Ook als op zichzelf staand patroon kunt u er een mooie zomerquilt van maken.

My foundation pattern is 30 inch high by 10 inch wide. When you like to combine my pattern with the ones from other designers, you can easy add a border if desired.

Graag wil ik hartelijk bedanken:
A special ‘thanks’ goes to:

Deze stoffen, die NorthCott beschikbaar stelde, heb ik gebruikt:
I used these fabrics, NorthCott gave them for free:

Er zijn veel bedrijven die gratis kadootjes weggeven. Helaas zijn niet alle kadootjes in Nederland gratis te ontvangen. Het kan zijn dat er u gevraagd wordt of u de portokosten wilt vergoeden. Enkele bedrijven sturen alleen hun kado aan inwoners van de USA. Dit jaar is het kado dat ik mag weg geven ook beschikbaar buiten de USA.

Alle patronen en ‘Give Aways’ worden u gratis aangeboden. We vinden het fijn als u de ontwerpers en sponsors laat weten dat u hun inzet waardeert.

Dit kan ook door bijvoorbeeld een goed doel te steunen. Ik heb dit jaar gekozen voor Verdanda. Wilt u hun website een patroon downloaden en maken voor dit goede doel? U kunt het blok opsturen zoals beschreven op de PDF van het patroon. Zij maken van alle ontvangen blokken prachtige quilts voor mensen met een beperking. Klik op de afbeelding om naar de website van Verdanda te gaan.

All patterns and ‘Give Aways’ are free. It’s good when you would show your appreciation to the designers and sponsors.

This is also possible by supporting a charity. Verdanda in a non profit organisation of quilters who make quilt for disabled people. You can download a pattern and sew the block. Be sure to print it at a scale of 100%. This pattern is in centimeters. You have to sew it in the right size in centimeters (please don’t use inches), because else it can not be sewn together with the other donated blocks. When you send the sewn block to the address in the PDF (the Netherlands) these quilters will make beautifull quilts for people who can use a little extra attention.

  1. Fin mønster – mange tak. Jeg har elsket at tage på tur med campingvognen da jeg var ung.

  2. What a beautiful row! One of my happy places was visiting the Netherlands last year – going back again in 2020! Hugs from Canada!

  3. A trailer on wheels sounds like a fun place to call home. I live in the country in rural Oregon, USA. It sounds as if you move around a lot and see many places, while I stay home almost all the time, in our old farmhouse, with many dogs, cats, chickens, and miniature horses. We are going to get goats next week as well. Lots of company here. 🙂

  4. I love your row. I use to camp as a child with my parents and siblings. I took my daughters camping when they were young by ourselves and with girl scouts. What wonderful times I have had and your row is such a wonderful reminder of those memories. Thank You so much

  5. What a fabulous row! Reminds me of camping as a child with my family. Thank you for your lovely work.

  6. Love your Row! We used to go camping when the Kiddo’s were growing up… was always such fun! Thank you for sharing your picture of countryside too 🙂

  7. We love going to the mountains and sleeping in a tent or our small van. Love your beautiful work.

  8. Love your block, and appreciate all the hard work that went into it. Thank you so much for being a part of the Row-Along!! I’ve followed you for years, and I looked through some of your new patterns – they are absolutely gorgeous!! I actually started to order the new Christmas pattern, but then remembered I have a huge quilt to get done in the next few months. When it is finished, I will definitely order your Christmas pattern. Blessings to you and yours, Vivian wvoaks at comcast dot net

  9. I love your cute little caravan! I am hoping to find a small vintage one and use it after I retire. looking forward to a bit of travel.

  10. We went camping in a small caravan like this when I was a child. Thanks so much for the row pattern.

  11. What beautiful patterns you have! I wish I had enough time to do them all. I looked through all of your site.

  12. Really like your row! We love to camp and have cookouts over an open fire so I will definitely be finishing this row block!

  13. Love your Row! Reminds me of camping with my family. Thank You for sharing, love your paper piecing patterns.

  14. Thanks so much Heleen, I am always amazed by your patterns.
    Thanks, Elizabeth in Silverdale, WA USA

  15. This is beautiful! I am new to paper piecing, but I really love it. I would find this a wonderful challenge as a gift for my parents, who love to go camping in the mountains in their camper.

  16. Great row! You did a nice job designing it. Thanks for taking the time to create and share. Much appreciated

  17. What a wonderful row! My husband and I lived in a 5th wheel for 5 years, full time, and I loved traveling all over the US and staying wherever we felt like stopping. It was so much fun, and I miss it greatly. I think about getting a little one like this one in your row. At least now, I will have the row! Thank you for the pattern.

  18. I love your pattern! I haven’t been camping for sometime but I always love being out in nature.

  19. What a beautiful row. We love camping and combining that with a quilt block in the sky is just perfect!
    Thanks for a wonderful addition to the row along!

  20. Beautiful row – it shows your love of camping and the photo of the chateau is gorgeous. Thank you for the lovely pattern.

  21. Wow, I love your block Heleen. Thank you very much for sharing your Happy Place row pattern with us.

  22. I love your row Heleen, it’s a great row for those of us who go camping and enjoy the countryside. We usually tent it, but we’ve often talked about getting a camper and spending our retired years on the road. 🙂 Of course, I’d like to thank you for coming along on this adventure again, and am hoping you will come next year to.. Hugs
