Today I finished sewing together the blocks for the Color Explosion Quilt. I never stop wondering how it is that even though I am as thorough as can be, the sizes of the blocks always varies a bit. Hm!!
( I need a better camera, time to upgrade my phone I guess). Well, the top is off to meet the magic hands of LeKaQuilt, I can't wait for part two of this project!
My darling J and myself enjoy making our new home together, and painting old pine furniture is one of many tasks on our agenda.
It is amazing what paint can do, don't you think? J asked me the other day "wouldn't it be nice if you made some table runners?" Who am I to say no???
I don't have much time to quilt these days, but I managed to make two small tablerunners using a very simple pattern. And now that I have learned not to hose down the fabric I am getting really into glue basting.
I really wanted to get started on three table clothes today, but my head and body was not up for it after getting almost no sleep last night due to tummy ache.
I found a little handsewed block in my UFO pile that I made years ago. I made this little quilt in no time, is it not cute? It makes me want to put on a cute repro apron (don't have it) and start making some cup cakes!
A "traumatic" incident with an old sewingmachine and a apron in my childhood kept me from sewing for decades. However, around the year 2000, I discovered that sewingmachines today are very agreeable, and I was hooked - for good! I have four sons, and I live in a small town, not too far from Oslo.
