Project Quilting 10-4 Pixel play

That was the challenge we got this week on the blog Persimon Dreams. As last week has given us a touch of spring, I decided to make a bee. I needed a pouch for a project in work, and put the bee upon it. Here you can see how the bee had a great time outside in between the snow drops and the crocus.

Sydde en liten bie for denne ukens utfordring, fordi vi har fått et snev av vår. Ute blomstrer snøklokker og krokus. Mye fantastisk å se her på Persimon Dreams av hva andre har gjort denne uken. Ha en fin helg!

Dust Off a Quilt Book Blog Hop and giveaway

When Bea asked me if I had old quilt books, I had to admit I have plenty. So fun to be challenged to make something from one of them. And I can recommend looking through your own old quilt books. So many fun ideas to get from them.

Today is the first day of the blog hop, and it's my day. My choice is a book from a Norwegian quilter, Grete Gulliksen Moe. It's actually an art book showing many of her brightest quilts, with no precise patterns. But I had seen a beautiful place mat there, and wanted to make two for ourselves. So I just sketched up a pattern and started out really scrappy. I was so happy with the result, and now we have place mats at home, at last.

It's possible to use as a runner too.

There's a GIVEAWAY too, and as usual, I'll give away a pincushion, and I'll throw in a roll of beautiful batik fabrics from Island Batik. Just comment and tell me if you have a favorite colour. For me it varies, and just now it's blue, as you might have understood. I'll draw a winner on Saturday.

Mini La Passion med mere

Da var det på tide å vise at det går framover med min mini. Men med 1/4" sekskanter går det jo slett ikke fort. Har også latt meg friste av Eagles'WingsQuilts til å prøve noen trekanter for hånd.

Time to show progress on my mini La Passion. But with 1/4" hexies it's not going fast. I was also tempted by Eagles'WingsQuilts to try some triangle paper pieced blocks.

Har gjort litt håndsøm også på et hemmelig prosjekt for Beas blogghopp. Kom gjerne tilbake i morgen for å se hva jeg og de andre deltagerne har sydd.

Then I've  hand stitched a bit on my secret project for Bea's blog hop. Come back to find out more from me and the other participants tomorrow.

Gult er kult

Har sydd denne stjerneblokken i gult. Du finner framgangsmåte for denne og andre små blokker hos Soscrappy i serien Tiny Tuesday. Nådde også å sy noen andre gule resteblokker.

I made this star block today. You'll find the pattern for this and other small beauties at Soscrappy. The pile of yellow scrap blocks is still growing.

Good Fortune Mystery Quilt

Every year Bonnie Hunter gives us a mystery quilt, starting in November/December. Last year I decided to try to sew just half of the blocks. And more, I did them half size of the original. I also changed the colours, and of course made it totally scrappy. In the end I needed more than half of the blocks, and before I can finish it, I have to make more small half triangle squares and string blocks. But I have lots of four-patches left, don't know why. The quilt will finish 30"x30".

Her er så langt jeg har kommet på Bonnie Hunters siste mystery quilt. Har forandret antallet blokker, størrelsen på blokkene og fargene, men ikke mønsteret. Har brukt bare rester i denne.

First sign of spring today.

Jeg har fått dilla på disse nåleputene med lomme. Har sydd to nye i det siste, og en av dem er allerede kommet til England.

I'm addicted to these small pincushions with a pocket. The last week I made two, and one of them is already in England.

RSC - gul

Om du klikker på linken til Soscrappy finner du mange idéer til gule blokker. Tidligere i uka sydde jeg to blokker som hører med i utfordringen. De er 5" nå, og 4,5 ferdig montert i en quilt. I tillegg har jeg sydd disse tre blokkene.

If you visit Soscrappy you'll find ideas for beautiful yellow blocks. Earlier this week I made two blocks from the challenge. They are 5" now, but will end up 4,5" in a quilt. Today I've made three new blocks.

Project Quilting 10 - 3

The challenge on the blog Persimon Dreams this week is "bigger than a breadbox". My breadbox is rather big, so I had to make my quilt 16"x18,5". Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and I have to practice quilting after a class I took a couple of weeks ago, so I combined those two and made this heart quilt. With these beautiful batiks from Island Batik it came out quite well. From Sunday evening you can vote for 10 of the quilts you like the best if you click this link. Mine is number 20.

Denne uka har Kim på bloggen Persimon Dreams ny utfordring, større enn en brødboks. Og siden min brødboks er ganske stor, så ble quilten min 16"x18,5". Kombinerte mitt behov for å trene frihåndquilting og at Valentinsdagen er like om hjørnet. Slik ble denne quilten til, og jeg har brukt nydelige batikkstoffer fra Island Batik. Fra søndag kveld kan du se alle quiltene og stemme ved å klikke på linken her. Min er nummer 20.

Tiny Tuesday - gul, og samefolkets dag.

De små blokkene hos Soscrappy er så søte. Her er de i månedens farge som er gul.

The tiny blocks from Soscrappy are so sweet. Here they are in this month's colour, yellow.

Siden det er samefolkets dag i dag, tar jeg med et bilde av dokka i samedrakt. Jeg har vært i barnehagen og fortalt seksåringene om samer, og det var veldig kjekt. Om noen lurer, så har hun Karasjokdrakt.

It's the Sámi National Day today, and I've been visiting a kindergarden with my doll and other things I've got to tell them about the sámi people.

FAL first finish, RSC yellow and winners

I find it so perfect for February's yellow challenge to repost this beautiful batik quilt I finished for the Island Batik blog hop a couple of weeks ago. Here you can see what my plans for this quilt looked like in the beginning of January. I've also made some small blocks with my tiniest scraps. I've drawn winners for my pincushions and sent them mail. My blog hop posts are updated with the winners, if you like to see who won.
