Project Quilting 12-2

The second challenge from Persimon Dreams was fussy cutting. That was my chance to do some hexagons. After joining all hexies needed, I appliqued them to a background and made this beautiful hot pad. Size 7"x11". My Crazybird is always wondering what's going on.

Hearts on fire blog hop

Welcome to a fun week full of hearts, hosted by Carol at Just let me quilt. You'll find the list of participants when you click the link. 


I'm happy to start the party, and first I'll show you two scrappy hearts. I love how they came out.


It's no secret that I love scraps, so my next heart is scrappy too. Hot pads are so useful, and I make them all year around. Enjoy these photos, some of them in the snow.





Some years ago I made this log cabin heart for an exhibition in France. It's telling me that we are on our way against better times, with butterflies, and hopefully without viruses.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you will enjoy what we all made for this blog hop. Be sure to visit my fellow participants today. We all love nice comments.

Circles - from old to new

On the blog Patchwork Inspirations there is a QAL every year, starting in January. This year the theme is curves. We're supposed to sew 2 blocks every week for 8 weeks. Then join the blocks, and finish a quilt at the end of May.

I had an idea for making block, and the first week I made these.

But as I regarded the blocks this week, I wasn't inspired to go on making them. So I changed, found some old fabrics, and started again. Now I've made four blocks for the first two weeks. And I'm more happy with the new ones. I might need more than 16 blocks for the project I'm thinking of.




As it's the 15th, you can find more scrappy projects at Rutigt today.

Mini La Passion

This is how my mini La Passion looks like at the beginning of the new year. During last year it grew more than 3600 hexies, and now the windows are closing. I don't know exactly, but I think I'm about half way through this project by now. Pattern is by Grit Kovacs.

Project Quilting 12-1

I'm always looking forward to the challenges from Persimon Dreams at the beginning of each year. This is the first this year, and the challenge was Illuminating + Ultimate Grey. I made it all scrappy, and had great fun taking pictures of it, as you might see. Size: 7"x11".

One Monthly Goal for January

Happy New Year to all. I really like that Patty at Elm Street Quilts is hosting OMG again. That helps me finishing some of my ongoing projects. I'm too good at starting new projects, not so good at finishing them. But here I try, and this time I hope to finish the pineapple quilt I started last year. 

This is the currant state. I may have to redo one block. Used a wrong foundation paper, and it got too small. I love this scrappy blocks, and I'm looking forward to seeing it done.

2021 Planning Party

At the end of every year I'm always looking for new projects for the new year to come. Time to start planning, and just the right time to participate in Quilting Jetgirls's Planning Party.

 

Next year I plan to go on making blocks for Sewcialites by Fat Quarter Shop, 2 every week until June. I love these small blocks. 

I hope to go on making 10 hexies a day on my mini La Passion. The hexies are 1/4", and the pattern is from Grit Kovacs


I'm going to finish at least three bigger quilts. One of them is my OMG project for December.

Then I will take part in some blog hops. So happy also to see what others make in these hops.

I hope to make the one-week challenges in Project Quilting by Persimon Dreams, starting soon.

I've signed up for a curved challenge on a French blog, Patchwork Inspirations, starting next week.

Curated Quilts have four challenges every year, and I love those. Maybe I can make a quilt or two.

I'm sure I'll find bigger or smaller temptations during the year to jump on. I love to start projects. And I have a hope that I can reuse some old fabrics too. My blogging will continue also next year, hopefully with a post twice a week. 

Thank you all for nice comments on my blog this year. I try to answer your questions, but I don't always have the time to send a mail. But I appreciate you all. And I try to revisit your blogs.

Happy New Year to all my blogging friends!

Head over to Yvonne and see what others have planned for next year!

OMG for December finished

I love long term projects. I don't really know how long I've been working on this one, but with the help from Elm Street Quilts and One Monthly Goal  I finished this top. Here you can see it at the beginning of the month. Today was a beautiful day, and I took my quilt out for a photo shoot. Now it's going to be quilted very soon, and put up on the wall.

A little bag and gifts 19 - 24 in my advent calendar

This little denim bag I made as a Christmas present, and now I can show it.

 

And here are the last gifts in this year's advent calendar. It has been so fun.
