Happy birthday!

This month it is 20 years since my quilting guild, Ringerike Quilte Klubb, was founded! We just had to throw a birthday party!!

A lot of the members came that night, for coffee and cake (I would show you a picture of the deliscious cake, but I ate it.....not the whole I mean..) raffle and shopping.

Lille Stasjon visited us, temting us with lots and lots of nice stuff. I will show you my buyings later.

Oh, so much goodies........

And more.........

Pure heaven for a quilting gal!

Naturally we had show and tell. I didn`t manage to get pictures of every quilt, (reason: distracted by cake), but some of the goodies I manage to record.

Kari Wenche (no blog) made this cute table cloth, her first project involving this technique. I believe she handquilted it as well.

My friend Bente (no blog) made this dream if a gorgeous quilt, and has handquilted it.

I was absolutely stunned when Bente showed me this wonderful quilt, made from a pattern by Leannes House. I immediately went online, and ordered the pattern for Leannes new BOM. Now I am patiently (!!) waiting for it to come to me all the way from Australia.

Have fun sewing!

  1. Congratulations to your guilds birthday :)! Looks like a very nice party and some real great quilting!
    Greetings from Berlin

  2. Gratulerer med jubileumet. Ja, der quiltere møtes er det ofte mye godsaker, både å spise og nyte. Er spent på hva du har kjøpt. Og så var jeg imponert over Kari Wenche sin duk med sekskanter. Har spesielt forkjærlighet for disse formene, jeg. Du får oppfordre henne til å lage blogg, slik at jeg kan få se flere av hennes syarbeider. Ha en fin helg.

  3. Gratulerer med jubileet! Det ser ut som om dere har en hyggelig bursdag. Flott å få besøk fra Lille Stasjon. Løp og kjøp!

  4. Gratulerer med dagen. Leanneteppet var kjempeflott - men du hadde nå ikek trengt bestille mønsteret helt fra Australia da. Siw på Quiltegården har alle hennes mønster.

  5. Ser ut som dere har hatt en flott feiring med godsaker for både øyne og mage...Mitt quiltelag ligger bare 3 år etter, så i 2013 blir det nok fest her i nord!

  6. A happy 20th to your guild. I enjoyed seeing the quilt projects. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Gratulerer med jubileet, selv om jeg er litt i det seneste laget. Denne Quilten var bare flott.

  8. What a fabulous quilt guild party! Thankyou for sharing the projects, they all look so beautiful....
