I wanted to thank you for your Amsterdam quilt shops recommendation; I
shopped at both.
I came home with a bundle of Delft blue fat quarters -- any recommendations
for a pattern that might be considered "Dutch" to use these blues on?

So any of those Amsterdam shops have websites? I'd love to see what the Dutch fabric shops carry. KJ

Yum.....I should have been warned about some of those delicious fabrics. I think I drooled on my keyboard. KJ

I'm glad you had a good time there :-D
well.. I'd be thinking of making a set of cups in the blue - or maybe a milkmaid or sailboats

or Wendy Vosters has a book out with a windmill pattern in it which you may like too
or if you prefer more traditional patterns think of the Dutch windmill block ( 4 pairs of flying geese going round) but off the top of my head I can't recall any specific pattern that is traditionally regional though it's possible there may be some.

If you like appliqué, or "recessed" appliqué, you should look into the book "Dutch Treat", which is smallish blocks which are based on Dutch tiles in blue and white. Gorgeous.

I loved your friend's website -- the sailboat quilt is adorable. My fabrics are actually dark blue Dutch chintz -- I think the tea cups might be lovely.
I also bought the crouching cat kit -- I am looking forward to making it.
