Language

The challenge from Art Journal Journey this month is LANGUAGE. When I'm in France, I always speak better French after a glass of wine. So I had to find a glass and some nice bottles. This month I tried some fabric painting for my piece. Enjoy the details, I'm learning new things every month.

I'm so happy to be able to understand people from all over the world by understanding other languages. I always bring with me some small quilts, like this little ATC, to give away, so my friends around won't forget me, he he.

Scrap Happy May

If you have scraps, the perfect thing to do is to make some mini quilts. More scrappy projects at Rutigt. These are my miniquilts for #microminisal this week.




A little glimpse of my garden just now. The first rhododendrons are blooming, and they're just beautiful.

Improvquilt

Sometimes I forget to put the progress of a quilt on my blog. This quilt is made after a black and white challenge from Quiltimprovstudio. I've worked on it now and then since February. Yesterday it was finished, and I'm quite happy with how it came out. It's called "Punk", and the size is 25"x25", quilted at home with variegated thread. 

I took it to the beach for a photo shoot, and there were two dinosaurs eager to take a closer look, and help me holding the quilt so it didn't blow away.

Miniquilts

This weekend I've made two miniquilts. I love scrappy, as you all may know. And it's easy and fast to hand sew the bindings when they are so small, 3" and 6".

Norwegian Snowflakes Quilt

This week I've finished the first of nine blocks for my new quilt. You can read more about it here, and find links to the pattern. 257 squares in each block is what I need. So much cutting, and all scrappy.

I tried to find the last snowflake for this winter to take some photos. You can see that the snow is almost gone, and we're waiting for summer.

Quilt-a-long and OMG for May

Now my quilt for the curves quilt-a-long at Patchwork Inspirations is ready for quilting and binding. So my goal for May is to finish this quilt I started in January. All circle blocks are framed and joined together. Here is how it looks, and you can see the blocks before framing here.

Blue inspiration

I'm working with elements of art quilting. I have a long way to go, but it's so fun to let yourself be inspired by a person or a colour. I had some nice blue scraps, so small I couldn't use them for anything else. 

 I'm still inspired by the challenge from Art Journal Journey this month, that is "Inspired by..". This is my second try this month, and you can see my first one here. I will need so much more practice, but for now, this is where I am.

In the Kitchen stitchin' blog hop

If you need something new for your kitchen, this blog hop must be perfect for you. It's hosted by Carla on her blog Creatin' in the Sticks, I'm so happy to have the chance to start the ball. You will find new ideas every day for almost a week from all my fellow participants. 

The first I made were these pot holders. I love scraps, and could use some of them here. And I'm pretty happy with how they came out. Size: 7 1/4"x10 1/4".


Here are more pictures of these beautiful pot holders. I think I'm in love with them already.






I planned to make a runner to go with the pot holders. But as I already had fallen in love with them, I changed my plan, and tried them with another colour. And the weather has given me possibilities to take them out of the kitchen for a photo shoot.






The last thing I made for this hop was a new hanging kitchen towel. So easy to make and so useful to have in my kitchen.

Be sure to visit my fellow hoppers today to find lots of great ideas for your kitchen. You'll find the entire list of hoppers at Carla's blog here. Thank you Carla for this nice blog hop.

Den syende himmel (you're here)

I always make a new pincushion for the blog hops. This time I made two, so here they are. Pincushions in the kitchen? Oh yes, I keep pincushions in every room in my house.

 
And I even had to make a third one. Enjoy!
 

Thanks for visiting!
