Sunday slow down

I've really slowed down on this mini. But it has grown some hundred hexies the last weeks. So here it is. Because the hexies are just quarterinch, you barely see the progress. I've started to baste black hexies for the next round. Pattern by Grit Kovacs, if you like to give it a try.




My little yellow quilt has grown a bit too.

It's cool to be square blog hop

This week we've seen so many square quilts in this fun blog hop hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. Thank you so much Carol for giving us the chance to hop with you.

Today is my day, and the first thing I can show you is my recycled little denim quilt.


https://www.justletmequilt.com/2020/05/its-cool-to-be-square-blog-hop-is-still.html

Size: 21"x21"

I quilted it with flowers in every square.


Even the back side is recycled.

When we first were invited to this cool blog hop, I started out with these squares. You can see more of my pineapple quilt here. The little NYB block I made into a mini quilt as a birthday present for a blog friend. I forgot to take a picture of it before I sent it. All the denim squares are in the little quilt. Look at all those shades of blue. The two other blocks are made into pincushions, as you might have guessed already. A blog hop without a pincushion or two is not possible for me.





I really can recommend visiting the other participant in this blog hop. So many new ideas, and I've already some new things on my to-do list. Here's the list of fellow bloggers in this hop:








Take a good cup of coffee, and enjoy all the beautiful quilts you find in this list. And we're all happy if you send a nice comment if you like what we've made up for you. Have a nice weekend!

Scrappy pinapple quilt

I've been sewing pinapple blocks this last month. These blocks were easier to make than I had thought. It's the February challenge from Persimon Dreams. I have used many of my tiniest scraps. The blocks are 7", and Saturday I made the last of the 63 blocks I'll need for this project. Here you can see them all together. Now comes the removing of the paper, and will take some time.



Ups, I found one too small block. Think I have to make another one.

I had to rescue the blocks before the wind took them all.

Scrap Happy May

It's the 15th, and I've made three new blocks for my scrappy quilt. I hoped to take some photoes outside, but you can see that we have a snowstorm today. And we've had lots of snow this last week. It seems the snow will stay for another week or so. More scrappy love at Rutigt today.




 I don't know how I will join them, with or without fabric in between the blocks. Here you can see them all together.

Dinosaurs

I've made this quilt for my grandson. He loves dinosaurs, and these fabrics are just perfect. I sent it to him some days ago, and can show you now, as he got it today. He was thrilled, I can tell.

Size: 38"x52"

Even the back side is a pieced quilt

Pincushions

It has been a while, and I find it just the right time to show you my new pincushions. The crazybird is so curious, and he can't come close enough.
