Nytt hus og ny hage

Jeg bygde meg et nytt hus og lånte hagen til en venninne. Her er resultatet.

I built a new house and borrowed my friend's garden. And here is the result.

Sommerlige nåleputer

Har sydd en søt og sommerlig nålepute, og så har jeg fått en blå veskenålepute i posten. Tusen takk Sandy.

I've made a sweet pincushion for the warm summer days. And I've also got a new one in my mailbox recently, a pouch pincushion. Thanks a lot Sandy.

Søndagssøm

Uansett hvor mange blokker jeg syr til denne, synes jeg ikke den vokser i det hele tatt. Må bare fortsette med mine halve sekskanter.

I have made new blocks for this zigzag, but I can't see that it's growing. Have to continue to sew half hexagons.

Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop




We've had a fantastic spring in southern parts of Norway this year. So happy then to be a part of Carla's blog hop on her blog Creatin' in the Sticks this week. Scroll down to the end of this blog post and find the links to all the beautiful blooming projects from my fellow bloggers.

My garden is blooming, and my quilting projects too. Here are my mini hexagon flowers belonging to La Passion. I actually make it in two different sizes and colorways. This is the smaller one and these hexagons are 1/4". You can read more about those projects here and here.



But for this blog hop I made something I've thought about trying for a long time. I was inspired by my rhododendrons in my garden, as you probably can understand.



So this is what I made. As they were fun to make, I actually made three of them, and they are all different. No pattern, just free sewing. They can be used as hot pads or just something beautiful to look at in your kitchen.

Ingen kan vel tvile på at jeg elsker å sy nåleputer. Her er foreløpig siste utgave av sorten, og den er allerede på vei over dammen.

By now nobody can doubt that I love to sew pincushions. This is my latest , and it's already on it's way overseas.

Mini La Passion

Har sydd noen sekskanter på denne minien siste uka. Har foreløpig ingen planer om å ende opp med
17 000 sekskanter her, men man kan jo aldri vite.

I've made some new hexies for this mini the last week. Just now I'm not thinking of ending up with 17 000 hexagons on this one, but you never know.

Sommer og helg

Vi har hatt en nydelig måned her, og akkurat nå er naturen på sitt vakreste. Jeg sydde en ny bordskåner og tok den med på tur i nabolaget.

We've had a fantastic month here, and just now the nature is at it's best. I made a new hot pad, and took it out in the neighbourhood for a photoshoot.

Scrappy star - a tutorial

After making this runner, I have been challenged to show how I made my scrappy stars. So here we go.

This is how it's going to be.

Start with eight 3 1/4" squares from a neutral fabric. 
Put four away and make the star points on the other four.
Find some different scraps minimum 3# squares. Cut them to triangles like this.
Sew the triangle to the white square. The pin marks the middle, and the lower part of the triangle should be to the left of the pin. The star point have to be under the corner somewhere. Make some differences for the four parts to make them wonky.
Fingerpress the first triangle, and sew on the other. Remember to cross the two at least 1/2" from the bottom of the white square. Don't cut the white away, that will be your guide for squaring it up.
Sew all the four parts like this, iron them and square them up.
Find all the white squares and place the star points as you find it the best. Now on to the middle.
I make each square by sewing together small scraps and orphan HTS blocks. Square them up to 3 1/4".
Then the fun starts. Should I choose this one?
Or is this one better? I always make lots to choose from.
I ended up with this one as the perfect middle for these star points.
Sew them into rows, and then again each row together.
Finished! Now you can just square it up to 8 1/4". Good luck trying your own stars!
