Brikke

Nå i disse elgjakttider må det vel passe bra med en elgbrikke. Det ble litt seint før jeg ble ferdig, så bildene måtte tas uten dagslys.

A new hot pad, but I finished it too late for the daylight. Anyway, here it is.

Scrappy

Prøver å bruke opp de lyse restene mine i disse blokkene. Samtidig får jeg brukt noen av sekskantene jeg har liggende. Så får vi se hva det blir tilslutt. To nye blokker er klar.

I try to use all my light scraps in these blocks. And I also use some of my many hexies. Then I'll see what it becomes in the end. Two new blocks ready this weekend.

Hexie love

Har sydd litt på min mini La Passion de siste ukene. Med så små sekskanter viser det ikke mye. Ellers holder jeg på med quiltingen av det store teppet. Det tar tid, men går framover hver dag. Er også kommet til nummer 70 av 100 sekskanter med tema denne høsten.

My mini La Passion has grown a bit the last weeks. But with 1/4" hexies you can barely see it. Every day I quilt on my La Passion, and I'm so happy with it. I also make hexies for a challenge, and just now I've made 70 out of 100 with different  themes.



Theme: Micro mini things

Theme: Nautical (one of the boats sailed away)

Theme: Love

Theme: Florals

Theme: Favorite color

Fruktposer

Har prøvd meg på to handleposer til frukt. Har lenge brukt tøyposer når jeg handler. Nå vil jeg unngå plast også til frukt. Blir spennende å se hvor lenge disse holder.

I made two bags for fruit. I always use fabric bags when I'm at the supermarket. Now I will use these for fruit, and I wonder if the material will work for the purpose.

Nye blokker

Prosjektet mitt snegler seg framover, men jeg har tro på at jeg får til det jeg vil med disse blokkene. To blokker er helt ferdig, og en tredje er quiltet og klar for applikering. Dette blir spennende.

My new project is slowly growing, and I believe that it can end up as I thought. Two blocks are finished, and a third one quilted and ready to be appliqued. I find this exciting.

Starstruck with Island Batik

The challenge for all Island Batik Ambassadors in September was to sew something using stars. I've been away or occupied almost all September, but this last week I played with these beautiful batiks from a line called "Check it out". Just look at those colours. Click the link and see more of this line. And then I had to try the black solid. I didn't really know that batiks came as solids, until I was sent this fabric from Island Batik.

All fabrics and thread used in this project is given me by Island Batik and partner Aurifil.





 I love to make table runners, and this one is 13"x40". I like how these wonky stars came out. This evening I put on the binding and hand sewed it to the back side.





I also made some other stars earlier this month. They were just perfect for some nice pincushions.


And there are more stars. I'm really starstruck this month. Remember the fabric rolls I gave to my German friends in May? One of the girls made this Dresden plate star. Isn't it beautiful?


My fellow ambassadors also made their starstruck projects this month. One of the sweetest little things made you can find hereIn this blogpost you can find the links to all the other ambassadors.
Thank you for visiting my blog.

Ny nålepute og nytt prosjekt

Elsker å sy nåleputer av dette stoffet. Dessuten har jeg startet på et nytt prosjekt inspirert av LeaAnne  og Patchouli Moon Studio.

I love to sew new pincushions from this fabric. And I was so inspired by Lea Anne and
Patchouli Moon Studio that I started this new project right away.

La Passion Quiltetreff i Hannover

Hjemme igjen etter noen fantastiske dager sammen med gode venner i Hannover, Tyskland. Ser at folk etterhvert begynner å bli ferdig med sine tepper. Det er nok på tide, for det er bare vel et halvt år til den store utstillingen på Nadelwelt i Karlsruhe. Jeg håndquilter videre på min La Passion, og er kommet godt igang. Har beregnet å få alt ferdig i god tid før fristen.

Home again after some fantastic days with good friends in Hannover, Germany. As you can see, many of the quilts are finished, at least the tops. some of them are going to be hand quilted, like mine. I plan to finish at least a month before the great exhibition at Nadelwelt in Karlsruhe.


Her ser du de andre quiltene som ble vist på samlingen. Noen av dem sitter fast i quilterammer, og ble bare vist bilde av. Andre blir helt sikkert ikke ferdig før mai. Mønster: Grit Kovacs.

Here you can enjoy other La Passion quilts from the meeting in Hannover. Some of them are in hoops, and could only be seen as pictures. Others will certainly not be finished in time for the exhibition. Pattern by Grit Kovacs.
