La Passion Quiltetreff 2017

Dette året var over 30 damer samlet til treff i Gummersbach i Tyskland til treff rundt vår store hobby. Det ble en fantastisk internasjonal helg som ga god inspirasjon til å jobbe videre med La Passion. De fleste av dissse teppene inneholder nå over 10 000 sekskanter, og skal ende opp med vel 17 000 tilslutt. Om det er flere som har lyst til å starte på dette flotte teppet, så er det mulig å finne mønsteret hos Grit på bloggen Grit's Life. Tusen takk for en hyggelig helg til alle som deltok på treffet.

This year more than 30 quilters were gathered for an international meeting in Gummersbach in Germany with our great passion, La Passion, a beautiful hexagon quilt from Grit.  You can find the pattern on her blog Grit's Life. Most of these quilts have now more than 10 000 hexagons, and are going to end up with 17 000 in the end. Thank you so much for a fantastic weekend together. Enjoy the photoes.






I finished the first corner just in time for the meeting.

La Passion - 12 400 hexagons

Puh, hundre sekskanter til i dag, og en fin tur på den grønneste dagen i året. Og snart er hjørnet komplett.

Puh, hundred hexies more today, and a fantastic walk in the nature on the greenest weekend of the year. And soon the corner is complete.

La Passion - 12 300 hexagons

Enda ett hundre, men hjørnet trenger stadig flere sekskanter.

Another hundred, but the corner still needs more hexies.

Fargerik fredag

Da ble det tolv nye nåleputer denne uken. Samlet tall er da 24 på to uker. Og da gir jeg meg.

Twelve new pincushions this week, and 24 all together the last two weeks. So I'll end this project today by taking them outside to show you that the snow is gone.

City Sampler, blokk 39-40

Kjekt å ha dette prosjektet å ty til innimellom. Sakte, men sikkert vokser bunken med blokker. Her ser dere alle så langt, nummer 1 til 40 fra Tula Pink sin bok.

I'm happy to have this project for a variation from all my hexagons. Very slowly the pile of blocks is growing. Here you can see all the forty first blocks from Tula Pink's book.

Nesten en for dag

Denne ukens smykker er produsert. Det ble nesten en for dag. Neste fredag skal jeg avslutte produksjonen av disse, og da skal dere få se hvor mange det ble tilslutt.

This week's candy, and I almost did one a day. Next Friday I will end this project, and you'll see how many I managed to do all together.

La Passion - 12 100 hexagons

Tro om det er noen som ser forskjell fra sist? Hjørnet vokser i alle fall, og håpet er at det skal være ferdig om to uker.

I wonder if you can see the difference from last picture? The corner is growing, and hopefully finished in a couple of weeks.

Adventurous Applique and FAL second finish

Today I finished the challenge for April from Island Batik. My quilting sewing machine foot didn't work, and I couldn't find the right one from any of my friends. So I had to use my ordinary pressure foot. But I'm happy with that. I have to buy another quilting foot soon.

The fabrics from Island Batik, are just perfect to use in landscapes, as you can see. This series is called Costal Mist. And I made a bike bringing those beautiful fabrics around to you all. Yey, here we come! You can find more about the fabrics on this blog from Island Batik.



I first finished the background, then appliqued the bike.


I used thread from Superior Threads for quilting. The colours worked very well with the fabrics.
