Trunk show

As we have beautiful weather here just now, I took out six of my quilts to photograph on the beach. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Med det nydelige været vi har her nå, tok jeg med seks av mine quilter ut for fotografering. Bare nyt!

Finish-a-long Q2

Da jeg dette året satser på å få ferdig noen UFOer, er denne FAL utfordringen perfekt. En av vertene i år er Leanne på bloggen She can quilt. Satset stort etter nyttår med fire prosjekt, men klarte bare to. Er likevel fornøyd, og satser på de andre to i dette kvartalet.

I'm trying again to finish these two projects. Thanks to Leanne on the blog She can quilt for beeing one of the hosts to challenge us.

1. Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt
I really moved this project a bit forth the last months. I could have finished it if I have had enough blocks. But when I found that I had to make a bunch of new blocks, it stopped. Now I have the outer borders left, and I hope to manage that before the summer holiday.




2. Zigzag quilt, EPP with half hexagons
This has been a real longterm project. I think the last blocks are done, and now I have to quilt and bind it. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Slow Sunday Stitching

As I have had visitors today, we mostly talked, ate and had good times. But I basted some mini hexies, and made a flower. My friend also had a beautiful hand stitching project going on. Hope you all had a nice weekend.

Stjerner i sikte

Har såvidt kommet igang med blokkene for april i RSC19. De skal være turkis, og jeg har dessverre ikke mye av den sorten. Men noen blokker skal det vel bli, to denne uken. Tok dem ut i sola, og da kan du også se at det er like før hekken spretter ut grønn og fin.

I just started the April RSC19, and the colour is aqua. I have just a few scraps that colour, but I made two blocks at least. Out in the sun you may see that the trees are starting to be green here.

Fabric basket

I was so inspired by Connie at Freemotion by the River this week. She had made many beautiful fabric baskets. I had to try one, and it was really easy to follow her instructions. It couldn't stay empty, so I had to buy some sweets too.

Inspirert av Connie på Freemotion by the River sydde jeg denne stoffkurven. Synes den ble skikkelig søt. Enkel var det også når jeg fulgte framgangsmåten på bloggen hennes. Og så måtte jeg jo kjøpe litt sjokolade da.

La Passion - FAL second finish

So, after almost 6 years of hand piecing and hand quilting, my La Passion is finished. The pattern is made by Grit Kovacs, and you can find it here. This has been a long and interesting journey. It will end with an exhibition at Nadelwelt in Karlsruhe in May. I have tried to take pictures this week, but the weather has been really bad, with snow and wind. I promise to come back with nice pictures as soon as we have better weather conditions.

In January I picked four projects to finish before April. I managed two of them, and I'm so happy. Now on to the pictures I was able to take during the week. Enjoy!

Grønne fargeblyanter

Siden det er siste lørdagen i mars, så må jeg få vist fram de grønne fargeblyantene jeg har sydd for Rainbow scrap challenge. Inspirasjonen til disse fikk jeg fra bloggen Making a Lather for noen uker siden.

Last Saturday in March, and I've made some green crayons for the Rainbow scrap challenge. Inspiration for these blocks I got from Making a Lather a couple of weeks ago. Thank you so much.

Needlecase - a tutorial


Some of my readers asked me to make a tutorial for this needlecase I made for the blog hop some days ago. Today I made a new one, and here I've tried to take pictures of the progress. Have fun making one yourself, and please ask me if you don't understand.

Make your pattern on a piece of paper 5"x7".

Cut inside and batting 5"x7". Cut strings length 5".

Sew the strings to the batting until you cover it.


Iron the finished strip quilt block.

Inside and outside, wrong sides together, and quilt as you like.


Pin the pattern, and cut around.


Fold the pattern and cut away 1/2". Now you have pattern for the two pockets.

Pin the two patterns on a folded fabric, and cut out the two pockets.

Sew on the straight edge to make it stronger. No batting inside the pockets.

If you like something attached to the pockets, you have to do it now.

I made a seam around to fasten the pockets before the binding.

Sew the binding on the inside.

Turn and sew down the binding on the outside.

Press.

Sew on  a snap to close the case. A sweet little case you can bring your needles, thread and other hand sewing items in.
