Sari silk pouches

 Recently I came over a shop selling silk sari yarn. I bought some to see if it was possible to use it for quilting. There were narrow stripes, and I picked all the blue/green ones to make a new fabric. Then I could practice some free motion quilting on that fabric. Suddenly I had one, and soon two small and beautiful silk pouches.

Mini La Passion April report

Here you can see that I've been doing quite a bit of hexie sewing this month. You can get an idea of how the corners will look like. But there are still many thousands of hexies left to sew. And I can remind you that the hexagons are just 1/4".  Pattern by Grit Kovacs, originally made with 1/2" hexies.

Recycled drawstringbags

 I love using recycled fabrics. And I love all those beautiful and colourful fabrics they used for bed linen in the 70s and 80s. So here are some new drawstring bags made with a mix of all those colours.

My Little Mondrian

I adore the challenges from Quilt Improv Studio. A couple of weeks ago I finished this little quilt for the Primary Colors Challenge. The colours were supposed to be red, blue, yellow, black and white. My inspiration came from the painter Mondrian, and a new book from Cindy Grisdela called Improv Quilts.

I've called this quilt "My Little Mondrian", and it is 27"x30", and straight line quilted by myself.

Easter hens

 I made a hen for Easter. It was so fun, so I continued and made three more of them. The pattern is from Kari Renolen, and was published in Quiltemagasinet 1/22, a Norwegian quilt magazine.

Project Quilting 13-6

Last challenge this year for Project Quilting from Persimon Dreams. Flying geese is something I seldom do. But I had a nice evening making my 8 geese. Then I had to find out what to use them for. I had a customer wishing for a little table topper, so here it is. Spring is in the air.

Thank you so much Kim and Trish for all the fun this year too.

Postcard from Sweden - finished top

Thanks to mmmquilts for this challenge. I didn't mean to make this quilt just now, but I couldn't resist jumping into it. All fabrics used are from my stash, but some of them were hidden in different plastic bags meant for other projects. Now they are brought to use, and I'm so happy with the result.

Project Quilting 13-5

I didn't think I had time to meet this week's challenge. But today I just had to find a couple of hours to sew. Rhythm & Repetition was the theme from Persimon Dreams, and I made a little useful hot pad, sized 7"x 11". Just one challenge left this year for Project Quilting.
