Mini La Passion November Report

 We're at the end of November already, and I'm a bit back on this project. But I have done some big flowers, and now you can see how it will be in the end. The hexagons are 1/4", and there will be 17 300 when finished. Pattern by Grit Kovacs. 

I also have to show you how beautiful the days are here just now. Enjoy the last photo.

Chilhowie Mystery Quilt #1

 This year I didn't at all think of jumping into Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt. I don't know what happened, but suddenly I had made a pile of blocks for it, or really two piles. So fun, all my colours and scrappy. Now I'm waiting for the next clue already. Visit Bonnie's blog if you like to join.

City Sampler

 Every week I make one block for this project. It's overcoming, but it will take time. Here are the blocks from October/November, number 49 to 53. Two more before I can show you all the triangle blocks.

Music Blog Hop

 This week Carla on the blog Creatin' in the Sticks is hosting a fun blog hop. It's all about music, and I have already got many new ideas to put on my to-do list. The theme is just perfect for me right now, as my choir will give two concerts the coming two weeks.

The first thing I thought about was making a music card for some music loving friends to send as a Christmas card. Here you can see both the front and the back side.


After I finished the card, I found that I kept different music themed fabrics in a box. So I just went on making things. Here is a little ATC. They are so much fun to make.

A little drawstring bag is perfect to keep extras for your instrument, or sweets for whatever occasion.


I can also show you a quilt I made for our conductor some time ago. He talked about our choir as a spider web, weaving us together in a special way and with all shades of voices.

I hope you will head over to visit my fellow bloggers today.

 Here they are:

Den syende himmel (you're here)
 
As always I have made some pincushions for the blog hop. They are for music lovers. The back side is full of music as well.
 


Thank you Carla for hosting this fun blog hop! On her blog you'll find the full list of hoppers this week. Enjoy, and remember that we all like comments.

 
Thanks for visiting today, and keep singing.

Scraps = joy

 The last weeks I've been digging in my scrap bins for beautiful fabrics for my new project started last month. I try to make a pile of blocks every week. It will take time, as I'll need more than four hundred of them in this quilt. Here you can see the start of this project.





 

I was lucky to be with my elder grandson at his 5 years' birthday. He made me this beautiful drawing of his favorites just now. You may know them.

La Passion

 Three years ago I finished this hexagon quilt for an exhibition in Germany. It is a pattern from Grit Kovacs, and there are 17 300 hexagons in it, size 1/2". It's hand sewn and hand quilted, and you can read more about it if you click La Passion in the side bar.

As the quilt is about 2,6 m square, it's not possible to hang in on the wall. It's been in a bag now for three years. I was so happy when I was invited for a new exhibition in Molde, Norway a couple of weeks ago. There I also had a lecture telling about my life as a quilter, showing many of my quilts. 

Since it's been a while, now is the time to also show you this quilt again. On the second picture you can see the inspiration for the chosen colours. It's a bit of Norwegian nature.

New scrappy quilt

Inspired by Quilte-Hilde in Drammen I started this new scrappy project a couple of weeks ago. Here you can see my first blocks and how they're making stars when put together.

Mini La Passion October report

 Almost four months since last update, and I've done my ten hexies every day. Now there's less than thousand hexies left for the top. Then I have a round of about five hundred going on the backside to close the edges. So after Christmas I think I can start hand quilting this one.

Colour wash quilt

I came over #scrapwithterry2022" on Instagram the other day. Terry is giving lots of tips on her videoes for small scrappy blocks. I surely had to try at once. Here are my first blocks for the colour wash quilt.
