Fabrics!!!!

Today I visited Kathrines Quiltestue together with my friends Anne and Lena (LeKa Quilt). This was my first visit at what I can only call a quilters heaven. I have never seen so much fabrics in one place before!

 
This picture only shows less than a third of the shop. I could never work here, I would only be fondling the fabrics and forget the customers.


I bought some lovely FQ of the Ambleside collection. 


The two grey fabrics are for a needleturn workshop LeKaQuilt is having at my place in the fall. Can't wait!! The pretty blue fabric I just had to have :)

Have fun sewing!

Only a little quilting job left..


I believe I started on this quilt in 2007, but who can tell for sure after so many years? I finished the top last year, and now "only" the quilting job remains. I have always wanted to hand quilt it, but I fear many more years will go by before that happens. Too many projects ahead! I better start saving for some long arm quilting at LeKa Quilt.

Have fun sewing!

A quilt for the sweet tooth

I must admit that I have a weakness for the sweets, which is the reason for my constant weight struggle. Fabrics and sugar - thats me! 


This wallquilt sends me searching through my kitchen cabinets looking for sweet treats ever so often :) The text says "Life is short - have your dessert first".

Have fun sewing!

Birthday present

My very good friend Lene recently turned 40. I made her this little tablerunner for her birthday present. 


We have both joined a class in needleturn applique that starts in the fall, so I included this practical container and a few notions she will be needing.


Naturally I bought one for myself as well :)

Have fun sewing!

Starquilt

My youngest son has wanted a new quilt for a long time. Last fall I started on his Star quilt. The stars are my own design.

 
 
My appologies for the mess in the picture. It was taken in my tiny old flat. This shows the top before I freehand quilted it. My youngest was very pleased when he opened his present on xmas eve.

Have fun sewing!

A finish on display

I started on this BOM from Lappemakeriet several years ago, and the top has been finished for ages. My very good friend LeKaQuilt has done a superb job quilting it. My darling J loves it and decided it should hang in our stairway. He got no arguing from me :).  


 Have fun sewing!

An unexpected find

Yesterday we went for a ten hours drive to Kristiansand and back, picking up garden furniture and visiting idyllic sights like Lillesand and Tonsberg (Norways oldest town).   



We found a treasure lying on the side of the motorway - a beautyful croquet baby blanket. Someone must be heartbroken losing it, but I will give it a good home!

Have fun sewing!
