Mini La Passion in October

Not winter yet, but I've started to close my windows at least. There are 121 hexies in each window, and I've made four of them. Don't know if I can have them all closed this year, but I try.

I've had questions about those windows, and why I do it like that. Even if the hexies are just 1/4", the main work is starting to be so heavy and big that it's difficult to take with me everywhere. Some of the shapes, diamonds or hexagons, are easy to make and put in after I return to home. It's all going in a small pouch suitable for taking along wherever I go. 

People always like to see the back side, and here I've taken some photoes to show you. Not easy to see the difference between the back and front, can you? I'm basting the hexies in the corners, so I can just whip out the papers, and don't have to remove the basting thread. The edges stay flat and crisp that way.

 This pattern is by Grit's Life. Enjoy the gallery showing many beautiful versions of this quilt.

Scrap Happy October

Mid month is always scrappy together with Rutigt. I've started a new pineapple quilt, and the first block is finished. I'll need 63 for this project, so a long way to go. Four new blocks for the scrappy up-cycled quilt is also made, and next month I will have enough blocks to start joining them.

Norwegian Snowflakes Quilt

Luckily it's not winter yet, but I've been working on this quilt this last week. Two new blocks are made, and parts of another one. Now I have the first row, and will need two more. Pattern from Becky Tillman Petersen.

One Monthly Goal for October

This is a never ending story, and I'm sure my UFOs are multiplying on their own. I don't even remember starting this project, but now I think it's going to be a little table topper thanks to the challenge from Elm Street Quilts

These are the pieces I found in a plastic bag some days ago. Hopefully this will come together quickly.

Pincushions and nature

The last days I've made some new pincushions. One of them were filled with lavender. As we had a fantastic weather this weekend, I took them out for a hike and a photo shoot. We even met a snake, a viper, the only poisonous in Norway, and I was fascinated to see the beautiful pattern on it. I didn't dare to put my pincushion next to it though.

OMG finish for September

I had a plan at the beginning of the month to finish these two small zipper pouches. Now it's done, and I have a new pouch for my mobile charger. These small pouches are so useful for many things.

Thanks to Elm Street Quilts I have finished projects every month this year. I hope to keep up the good work also the rest of the year.

Scrap Happy September

Every mid month I continue making these scrappy and recycled blocks. Soon I have enough blocks for another quilt. For more scrappy inspiration visit Rutigt's Scrap Happy Day

When I made my four blocks of the month, I suddenly found that one of them was not as the others. I might have a new option for these blocks. What do you think? This time I had to unpick and resew the block.

Mini La Passion in September

We've had a fantastic summer here, and I've opened all twelve windows on my mini La Passion. Now it's time to start closing them. I've soon finished the first diamond window as you can see. The weight is 200 gram higher than November last year, and the hexagons are 1/4". 

I love this pattern by Grit's Life. The link will take you to a gallery showing many beautiful versions of this quilt.

Vintage

I love challenges, and this month the theme from Art Journal Journey is vintage. As I often work with old fabrics, this was perfect for me. I've chosen some fabrics, buttons and other stuff from my grandmother's clothes and boxes. She was born in 1909, was sewing and weaving, and collected fabrics, buttons and actually everything.  

This was a fun page to make, and I might make more of them this month. Soon I have pages enough for a book for myself. Enjoy the page and the details. There's even a secret pocket with a picture of my grandmother and myself from I was just some months old, so long ago.
