La Passion everywhere

My mini is growing, and I took it out for a photo shoot. I've closed all diamond windows and started the red round. The black round is almost finished. I love making small parts here and there instead of going around with one colour. It's not so boring when I do it like that. Pattern is by Grit Kovacs, originally with 1/2" hexies. But this one has got 1/4" hexagons.

Friends sewing together

Yesterday I was invited to a friend for a day with sewing, chatting, laughing and eating. We cut squares, and each of us started a children's quilt. This is how long we came. Now I have to finish it at home later this month. Thank you Margun for a beautiful day and a delicious lunch.

A bit further

My mini La Passion is growing, one window at a time. I'm also about half way through the next window. So maybe next Sunday all the diamonds will be closed. The original has got 1/2" hexies, and my version you can read more about here. This one has got 1/4" hexies, so quite small. Pattern by Grit Kovacs.

Christmas in July Blog Hop + giveaway

Welcome to the last days of this fun blog hop. I love blog hops, and didn't think twice when Carol from Just let me quilt invited us to show our Christmas quilts and ideas, both old and new. This little lady will help me guide you through my blog post.


Actually I have not made many Christmas quilts, but I might give you some new ideas for small presents for family and friends. And I can show you some more fun things for the holidays. If you scroll to the bottom, there is a giveaway too. Enjoy.




I made this runner some years ago. You can find a tutorial for the star block I used here.

Here are some sweet presents I've made. So fun to give away to family and friends.







I wonder if my little helper has got more to show you? Oh yes, she says.


Here's the house of Santa. As you may know, he lives here in Norway.


Did I say giveaway? My home made Santa is showing you what you can win. If you tell me in a comment what pincushion you'd like, you will be in the draw for it + a 3" bundle of more than 40 squares with Christmas fabrics. I'll find a winner on Sunday.



Here is a list of my fellow bloggers giving you new ideas for Christmas today.

Mini La Passion

I continue to close windows, and this is the third of twelve. Then I've almost finished the dark round, and tried to find out what the next three rounds are going to be. Pattern by Grit Kovacs.

Quiet book

After I finished my 100 day project, I've worked with my first quiet book with some of the pages I made.


There are 12 pages in this book. Four and four are sewn together with a binding.









I'm happy with the result, and now I will start my next book. Hopefully it will be a bit easier to make.
