The Winter Blues Blog Hop

Welcome to this first day, and my day, of the blog hop hosted by Carla at Creatin' in the sticks. Be sure to visit her blog to find all the details for this hop, a list of all participants, a giveaway, and a link to a Pinterest board to see all the beautiful things made for this hop.



I've had so much fun using my blue fabrics the last two weeks. I even used all the smallest pieces of blue in my doll bed quilt, using 1/4" hexies. I love how this came out.





If you have visited my blog before, you probably know that I love pincushions. So I had to make two for the hop. As I live in Norway, you should have got pictures with my pincushions in the snow. But with no snow here, you can get them among the flowers outside my door.





The last thing I made for the hop is this hot pad. I love making them, and they are great gifts. They are 7"x 11", and just the right size for a lasagna pan or as a mug rug. Can you spot that little sweet kittie?





If this wasn't enough, you may find more blue things from last week here.

This is the list of my fellow hoppers today. If you love blue, this is the right place to start.


Monday, January 20th



Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you have fun hopping with us. And thank you Carla for hosting the hop and bringing us all friendship and lots of new ideas, and the rest of the participant list.

Slow, or not so slow

This last week I'm so proud of my progress on my hexie projects. I finished five more big flowers for my mini La Passion, and today I also made a section for next week. Then my little blue quilt grew a bit too. All the hexies here are 1/4". And I can tell you that I also made something with hexies for the blog hop starting tomorrow. Here you can find all the participants for the hop.

Scrappy green

I'm working with my green scraps today, and trying to make 5" squares and other shapes. One of the squares I even used for a pincushion.

Prepared for The Winter Blues

Next week is going to be so much fun. This blog hop is starting on Monday, and that will also be my day. The host is Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks. You'll find the list of participants on her blog.



 I've already started the blues, and today I made this little pouch for my mini hexagons. I used blue scraps, and a "quilt-as-you-go" technique.




Welcome back on Monday for the show!

Scrap Happy January

Just now every day is a scrap happy day. For this project I try to make some new blocks every month. At the end of the year I hope to have a lap quilt. You'll find more scrappy projects at Rutigt.

My stars

An update on this week's stars for Béa et Cécile Quilt-a-long. I will have to make four more of them during January. And then another eight in February. So fun to make.



The other star project is scrapbusting from Em's Scrapbag. I don't know yet what they will be used for, but I plan to make some more of them. I'm just wondering if I should chose red or different colours around them, and think I'll have to try it out. Hope to show you more next week.

Slow Sunday Stitching

Today I've prepared the next section for my mini La Passion. Next week I'll need five more of these. So many hexies, but luckily I've basted some whites already.


I've also put together some of my blue quarterinch hexies.

Scrap Happy Saturday

This year I'd like to take part in Rainbow Scrap Challenge at Soscrappy. As I love scraps, and have lots of them, it's just perfect. January is green, and I found my tiniest green scraps to make some blocks, or at least the start of them. This is how long I came today.

Project Quilting 11-1

The first challenge from the blog Persimon Dreams this year is Notably Numeric. I looked into my scrap boxes, and thought that I could find numeric blue fabrics there. I started to cut tiny stripes, as many as I could, from different fabrics. That way this quilt was born. How many different fabrics can you find in this quilt?
Size: 7"x11".

Star projects

I've started two star projects this year.  The first one is a quilt-a-long from Béa et Cécile on Patchwork Inspirations. This is a French blog, so good for my French. I have to make at least 16 stars of my own choice, and in the end a quilt. This is my first star, and it's scrappy and wonky.


The second star project is from Em's Scrapbag. This is a real scrap busting quilt. I hoped to have the first star ready today, but with so much work on each one, I just finished the middle. I'll show you my progress on both projects next week.
