Litt forskjellig

Denne uken har temaet i sekskantutfordringen vært gamle stoffer, gjerne fra 30-tallet. Jeg har benyttet anledningen til også å vise noen av mine gamle knappeskatter. Flere bilder finner du her.

This week the hexie challenge was themed 30's prints. I also had some beautiful old buttons to show with the hexagons. You can find all the pictures of the week here.



Jeg har også funnet fram et gammelt sekskantarbeid og prøvd å finne noe å bruke det til. Jeg har noen idéer, men tar gjerne imot flere.

I also found an old hexagon project, and I tried to find something to use it for. Have you got fun ideas to give me for this one?


Så har jeg quiltet videre på min La Passion, og prøvepakket for å ta den med på tur. Kjekt med vacumposer, ellers hadde jeg aldri fått dette teppet ned i bagen.

I do handquilting on my La Passion every day. And then I have tried to get the whole quilt into this bag to bring it with me. Luckily I found a vacuum bag, else I would never have got it into the bag.

Pincushions and a winner

I always make pincushions, and this first is one I made a couple of weeks ago. The two others I got from Bea in her pincushion swap. Thanks again Bea!




And then we have a winner in my Island Batik blog hop. Thanks to all 72 who commented. I should have had a present to send to you all. But the winner is Lin. Congratulations! I'll send you a mail to get your address, so that I can send you the Island Batik fabric rolls.

Teppe til picnic

Under opprydding fant jeg et halvferdig teppe sydd av gamle dongeribukser. Dette måtte jeg få ferdig. Fant noen gamle gardiner og lagde en fin bakside. Alt på dette teppet er gjenbruk.

Some days ago I found an old unfinished quilt, and decided to finish it at last. I found some old curtains for the back side. All materials in this one are reused.

Sakte, sakte

Håndsøm av sekskanter tar tid, men er koselig arbeid. I dag har jeg jobbet med flere prosjekter. Siksakkteppet mitt nærmer seg avslutning, og i dag fikk den enda noen nye blokker.

Hexie work is slow, but cosy. Today I've had a hand on three different ongoing projects.  My zigzag quilt is moving towards the last blocks. 




La Passion skal helst være ferdig quiltet rundt juletider. Det går framover, jeg syr litt hver dag, men ikke for mye av frykt for å få betennelser i fingre eller håndledd.

The hand quilting of my La Passion have to go on every day. It's working well.


My view from where I sit working on my quilts. Not often I can sit outside, as I live at the west coast of Norway.

Prosjektet 100 hexies vokser jo med en sekskant hver dag. Denne uken har temaet vært "cute critters".

Project 100 hexies is growing with one hexie a day. This week's theme is "cute critters".

Sekskanter

For tiden syr jeg ting som ikke kan vises på bloggen enda, så det blir dårleg med innlegg her. Men jeg har alltid noen pågående arbeider, og de vokser sakte, men sikkert. Dessuten er jeg med på en hexagonutfordring, der temaet denne uken har vært mytisk. Flere bilder på Instagram.

Just now I'm mostly sewing things I can't show on the blog yet. But I have some ongoing projects, and they grow slowly. The hexiechallenge this week had the theme mythical. You'll find more pictures on my Instagram.

Håndquilting og utfordring

Som mange vet, så skal min La Passion quiltes for hånd. Håndquilting i seg selv er en utfordring for fingrene og håndleddet. Jeg har satt meg som mål å sy tre tråder hver dag for ikke å få betennelser. Så får jeg se neste måned hvor mye jeg må øke på etterhvert.

As many of you already know I'm hand quilting my La Passion. Hand quilting is a challenge, and to avoid inflammation in my fingers or wrist I sew three threads every day.  I might have to speed up later if that's not enough.


Jeg er også med på en sekskantutfordring som heter #100hexies100days 2018. Her syr vi etter spesielle tema hver uke, og det er skikkelig gøy. Her er mine sekskanter for de to første ukene.
Du finner en historie om hver sekskant på Instagram.

I'm also taking part in #100hexies100days2018. We're given different themes every week, and it's real fun. Here are my hexies for the first two weeks. You can find a story about each hexie on my Instagram.

Theme: All about you
Theme: Summer fun

The Great Outdoors Island Batik Blog Hop and Giveaway




This month all the Island Batik Ambassadors present the new fabric lines from Island Batik coming to your quilt shops just now. Today is my day, and the collection is called Petting Zoo. Welcome.




Petting Zoo


Please note: The Island Batik fabrics featured in this post were given to me for use in my role as an Island Batik Ambassador. I used Aurifil Thread for piecing, and HOBBS batting cotton 80/20.

The pattern I used for this project I've had in mind for a long time. It's from the talented Lea Anne Brummett at Podunk Pretties, and this one is even for free. It's a great way of showing many fabrics at the same time, and a super quilt for the theme we've got. Thank you Lea Anna for giving me so much joy with this pattern, both now and earlier. The quilting is done by Sølvi at Sølvi Quiltestudio.
Size: 53"x53".

There is a giveaway on Island Batik's blogpost. And if you read to the end of this post, you'll even find another giveaway here. Just leave me a comment, and you're in the draw at the end of this blog hop.

As the theme is OUTDOORS, we're going out in the beautiful nature of Norway. Here we go:

Just leave me a comment, and you're in the draw for these three stash builder rolls of Island Batik fabrics, each of them with four different 5" WOF stripes batiks.
