Scrap Happy Day i september

Midt i måneden igjen, og tid for scrappy blokker. Dette prosjektet vokser litt hver måned. Så håper jeg å sy alle blokkene sammen når jeg har nok. Flere scrappy poster finner du hos Kate.

Mid September already, and time for scrappy blocks. Every month I make some new blocks, and will put them together when I have enough for a throw quilt. More scrappy ideas by Kate.

Etui til tannbørsten

Har lenge tenkt på å sy meg et etui for tannbørsten. Jeg holder for tiden på å øve meg i frihåndsquilting, og da var det fint å bruke det til noe praktisk.

I've thought about making myself a toothbrush pouch. After having practiced free hand quilting lately, I found it great to use the piece for that.

My Favorite Quilt Block Blog Hop

 https://createinthesticks.blogspot.com/2019/09/my-favorite-quilt-block-blog-hop-and.html

Welcome to this blog hop hosted by Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks. Thank you Carla for all your work. Please visit her blog to find all the details for this hop, included a list of all the participants, link to a Pinterest board and even a giveaway.

I'm so excited to see what all the 35 participants made this week. My favorite block just now is the churn dash. I even took a test to find out that. And I love to make my blocks wonky and with scraps. First I made some pincushions, as I love pincushions. The squares are 1 1/2", and the edge 1".






I couldn't stop there, and had to make a pair of good potholders. As we have some late summer days here just now, I had to take them out to take pictures. 3# squares and 2" edge in these.






Here is the list of today's participants. Be sure to visit them all. The rest of the list here. Enjoy.
Tuesday, September 10th

 Thanks for visiting my blog.  What's your favorite block?

Så sakte på en søndag

Har ikke sydd mye å vise fram her på bloggen de siste månedene. Dette skal nå rette på seg. Arbeider med mitt bidrag til et nytt blogghopp som starter i morgen. Det heter My favorite quilt block blog hop, og du finner liste over alle som er med ved å trykke på lenken. Kom tilbake tirsdag og se hva jeg har sydd. I mellomtiden har min lille La Passion vokst, og jeg har funnet neste skritt på veien.

I haven't been often by the sewing machine the last months, but now I have some plans. I'm working with my things for a blog hop starting tomorrow; My favorite quilt block blog hop, and you'll find the list of all participants by clicking the link. Come back Tuesday to see what I made for this hop.
My little La Passion has grown a bit, and I'm ready with the next step on my way to 17 000 hexies.

Ny nålepute

Elsker å sy nåleputer, men det vet dere vel allerede?

Love making pincushions, but you probably know already?

Ferdig med den

Jeg holder på med opprydding i gamle prosjekter, og får noen av dem ferdig ved hjelp av #onethingwithamy på Instagram. I dag har Rutigt fokus på rester, og da passet denne lille brikken fint. Trykk på linken og se hennes flotte resteblokker.

I'm trying to finish some UFOs, and with good help from #onethingwithamy on Instagram it's easier and more fun. My friend Rutigt is focusing on scrappy projects the 15th every month, so this hot pad was a perfect choice. Click the link to see her beautiful scrappy blocks.

Mystery quilt

 As I've already said, I've started Kevin's Mystery Quilt. We've got two clues, both with lots of squares. Even if I've cut more than 800, there are lots more to cut. Today I had to start sewing.

Som sagt i mitt forrige innlegg, så har jeg startet en ny mysteriequilt. Vi har fått to deler av Kevin, og begge inneholder mange kvadrater og en haug med fourpatchblokker. Jeg har kuttet over 800 av kvadratene, men har mange igjen. Måtte starte å sy også i dag.

Litt håndsøm på en søndag

Etter en sommerferie uten så mye sying, har jeg endelig noe her på bloggen. I dag og de siste dagene har jeg kommet litt videre på min andre og mindre La Passion. Sekskantene er bare 1/4" store, så dette går ikke fort. Dessuten har jeg startet på Kevin sitt sommermysterium. Der skal vi kutte kvadrater i mengder, så selv om jeg nå har 800 av dem, så mangler jeg fortsatt nesten like mange før jeg kan begynne å sy.

After a summer holiday without my sewing machine and my computer, I'm here again. The last weeks I've done some hexies for my mini La Passion. The size is 1/4", so this is really slow work.
I've also started Kevin the Quilter's Simply Sensational Summer Scrap Quilt. We'll need lots of squares before we can start sewing, and I've now got more than half of them.

Finish-a-long Q3

Ikke mange ting blir ferdig her, for jeg liker mye bedre å starte på ting enn å gjøre ferdig. Jeg satser på to ting dette kvartalet, og begge er resteprosjekt som passer til Rutigt sin scrap happy day. Klarte bare det ene sist, men så var det også enormt arbeid med det. 

I like to start things much better than to finish them. Last quarter I just finished one of two, but so much work on that one. Now I have two scrappy project to finish.

1. Two pincushions
 I'm pretty sure I can make these two blocks into two pincushions.

2. Zigzag quilt

For the third time I try to finish this one. Do you think I will succeed this time?
