Inspired by

I found it so fun to make an art journal page last month, so I have to try again. Thanks for all the support, I love all your nice comments. 

The challenge from Art Journal Journey this month is Inspired by... As I've been inspired by @amd_artfuldreamer for a long time, I used one of her works as inspiration to make this piece. I tried to use at least 3 different materials, and I'm looking forward to using many of the things I've been collecting in boxes for years.

One Monthly Goal for April

I've already finished three UFOs this year thanks to OMG by Elm Street Quilts.  This month I plan  to finish a smaller project, a scrappy runner. Quilting and binding is waiting for me.

More mini blocks

 It's been a while since I showed these blocks for Sewcialites QAL now. We have come to block 24, and that means I have made 48 blocks, as I make two every week. I don't know yet if I'm making all the blocks into one quilt. You'll find the patterns at Fat Quarter Shop. They come in three different sizes, and I'm making the smallest ones.

OMG March finish

Today I finished the last stings on the binding. Thanks to Elm Street Quilts this quilt with recycled materials is ready to hang on my wall. Here you can see it at the beginning of the month. It's a windy day here today, but I still got some nice photoes outside. Size: 106 x 146 cm or 42"x58". Enjoy.







The quilt is longarm quilted by Sølvi Quiltestudio.

A star is born

My mini La Passion is growing, and today I finished the star. All windows are closed, and now I have to figure out the fabrics for the big diamonds and the corners. I'm not quite sure, but I think I've already passed 10 000 hexies, and they are 1/4". About 2 years more before this top is all finished. Grit Kovacs made the pattern, and if you visit her blog you'll find many different versions of this quilt.

A single flower, and Project Quilting 12 - 6

Ab intra, or from within, was the last challenge this year for Project Quilting from Persimon Dreams. I struggled a lot with that before I came to a conclusion on what to make. I've admired Annie on Annie's musings, for years. Many ideas have been there inside me, especially when comes to fabric journals. But I never had the courage to make something like that myself. So this is like a birth, coming from within. And I even jumped into the Art Journal Journey for this month's challenge as well, a single flower.



My piece is a frosted flower in the polar night. It's also reminding me that we still have to handle the challenges of the virus we've hanging around. The only way we have had to meet out quilting friends have been through social media. But we're still happy to have the chance to quilt with love. My first art journal page is 14 x 20,5 cm. I had so much fun making it.

Pincushions and more

Yesterday I suddenly got an idea for a new pincushion. I had to just do it. And as I loved the result, I had to make two more. Here they are. Even the back sides are beautiful.






I'm always working with my mini La Passion. The five rounds around the star is almost finished. And the windows are closing. When this big flower is in the window, I've just one left. Hoping to show you a finished star next Sunday.

Denim quilt

I forgot to show you this wall hanging made of all recycled materials a while ago. I love using old denim jeans in my projects. Here I've combined it with parts of a curtain, and used applique and reverse applique in the different "pictures" in this piece.

New project

This year I've started with finishing some of my UFOs. And I then have to start something new. As I like long term projects, I started cutting some white and blue squares a while ago. This last week I've put some of them together to a block, but I will still need 35 of them. Here is the first one.

This quilt is named Norwegian Snowflakes Quilt, and it's a pattern from Becky Tillman Petersen. As we had more snow than usual this winter, I found that this quilt was perfect. But I love spring, and today I found my first coltsfoot. 

Hopefully I can finish this quilt before next winter. So fun to chain piece some squares.
