A new block and more pincushions

I didn't have much aqua/teal scraps. But I managed to make one single little block today, only 4" square. And I made some small pincushions too. This week I also got one house pincushion in the mail, as part of Bea's pincushion swap.

Scrappy pineapple

 I've started a new quilt with pineapple blocks. It's the February challenge from Persimon Dreams. I have almost a year to finish it, so no stress. And it's so good to use up (?!) all my tiniest scraps. The blocks are 7".

More stars

A new star from Em's scrapbag this week too. With lime background I can see it glow. Look at all the other stars here.


As for Béa et Cécile quilt-a-long, I have joined all the stars. Now I just need some more blue squares and some borders.

Project Quilting 11-6

Last challenge this year, and what would be better than bringing the world something vibrant and vivacious. This is the theme for this week's challenge from Persimon Dreams. I made another hot pad with these vibrant scraps. Hope you can see who's living in this house. He's looking out of his window and wondering when the world is back to normal again. Also sending you some spring feelings from Norway, to ensure you that better times will come.

Making Us Laugh Blog Hop

Welcome to my day in this fun blog hop, where we are trying to make you laugh, or at least smile. These days it's more important than ever, I would say. So welcome to meet my newest friend, this sweet little fellow.


Joan at MooseStash Quilting is hosting this fun blog hop. Please find the entire list of participants at her blog. It started yesterday, and I can already promise you at least a smile or two. Thank you so much Joan. We really needed it in this crazy world.


 
Some time ago I found a picture of a fun pincushion on Lily Merribottom's Instagram. Click the link and read her story about it. I told her I would like to try to copy it, and this was the absolute right time to do so. Here you can see all parts of my special pincushion.





But I made more. This is a colourful and fun hot pad. The owner of this house looks so funny, and he really makes me smile.



What about a little owl for you key? She just fell asleep, so she can't even see if you're smiling or not. Maybe she's closing her eyes for the crazy things happening?


Here is the list of my fellow participants today. Hope you'll have time to visit them all. And sweet comments will brighten up our day, so welcome from all of us.

Thursday March 19

And before you jump over to the next one on the list, I have to show you one more thing. I AM a pincushion lover, so I just had to..........

Stars on Tuesday


I've made some new four-patches, and joined some more stars for Béa et Cécile quilt-a-long. Hopefully all the stars and squares will be there by next Tuesday.


 Look at this fun chameleon from Dione's blog, Clever Chameleon Quilting.It has taken the colours of my quilt.




The pile of stars from Em's scrapbag is growing, one star every week. This week my star got orange background. Look at all the other stars here.




These days we need some laughing, and tomorrow is the start of Making us laugh blog hop at MooseStash Quilting. Click the link to see the list of participants. My day is Thursday. Welcome.

Coronacation

Most activities are cancelled, shops locked down, and we're recommended to meet few people at a time. As the weather was nice today, I took a trip with a friend to a shelter with a view and a path she had marked with beautiful hearts. Welcome to walk with us.

















And we even found signs of spring.


After I came home I made a new pincushion. Maybe you could have guessed that?

Scrap Happy March

As usual on the 15th, I'm making 2 new blocks for my scrappy quilt. And I've also started blocks for later. More scrappy projects at Rutigt.





I wonder, isn't there a little piece of turquoise for RSC? Thank you The Joyful Quilter for reminding me.

And new pineapple blocks are in the making. You can see my first ones here.
