A Lovely Year of Finishes - oktobermålet er nådd

Så ble det et teppe av disse blokkene som så slik ut da måneden startet. Men jeg bestemte meg for å quilte inn noe blått på de hvite feltene, så jeg kunne ikke sy på lukkekanter enda. Det ble et perfekt teppe for picnic, så nå kan jeg bare begynne å vente på våren.

Det som var fint med dette var at jeg fikk brukt opp mange av de gamle dongeribuksene jeg hadde liggende. Quiltet med blomster i forskjellige størrelser, og fikk på den måten god trening i frihåndsquilting.
















































































I made a quilt out of the blocks I had at the beginning of the month. I found out that I would love to have some blue stripes quilted into the white parts, so I couldn't bind this quilt yet. But it became a nice quilt for picnic, so now I'm already longing for spring.

I used many of the old denim jeans I had in a big box. And I quilted different sized flowers in all the denim blocks. A good way of practicing free hand quilting.

  1. Great denim quilt. I'm in the process of breaking out the denim, myself. I just love the weight of denim in a quilt. You have given me great inspiration.
