A challenge in colours

In 2017 i joined the Delilah TOM club hosted by Kathrines Quiltestue.  Delilah TOM was a Template Of the Month designed Jen Kingwell.  As always (LOL) i got tempted and wanted to challenge myself colourwise.  And it became a challenge both in colours and layout.  I am not used working with bright colours like this and I have tried to calm it down using light fabrics in my background.  Thing I sort of manage that.

Sewing on TOM number 11 and waiting for TOM number 12 I just decided I do not want to sew any more blocks.  Enough is enough.  Down on the floor, putting my sewn blocks together with good help from Rusken. 

 Only 5 blocks leftover that I might put as a bottom row........or at the back of the quilt.

And this is how it looks like sewn together.  Think I will find a light fabric to frame the whole quilt. How to quilt it?  I have no idea yet.

When done with Delilah I was in desperate need to work with soft colours.

So I found my box that stored my Gossip In the Garden quilt, taped the blocks on to doors in the sewingroom.  It was so good to work with these colours again.  This will be my focus project for while now.  Along with some needleturn, some stitchery, some EPP...............  anyone else having it like this :)

Tulips are my favorite flowers and now and then I treat myself with a bouquet.  And I have finished my tulip pillow.  Although there is TOO much snow outdoors there is a touch of SPRING in my house.

As you all now Rusken is the boss of the house.  When this photo was taken he was enjoying time in my lap.  My sewing was too far away to reach, so now sewing for a while.  He is the boss.  Of course I can't move him away.

Yesterday was quilt meeting in my quilt group.   And this is photos from our show and tell.

Longing for spring

Last weekend my quilt group had invited Helle to teach us how to use The Learning Curve ruler.  15 ladies had signed up and we had a great day together in class.

The Learning Curve ruler looks small and boring, but I had so much fun working with this ruler and the possibilities is many.  I love circles, so this is a perfect ruler for me.

I am longing for spring now, and worked with spring/easter colours this weekend. And here is the block I was working on.

The day after the class i basted my tablerunner with good help from Rusken.  So this table runner is cat approved.

Long time since we have had as much snow as we have now.  I have cleaned my porch for snow three times already this winter, time to do it again. 

But all this snow makes perfect ski tracks.  Monday after work was my first ski trip this year.

Think there will be more skiing soon.  

As said, I am longing for spring.  And I love tulips.  So when I foun this new pattern from Solbritt and Maria, I just had to prepp this pillow.  Ready to be appliqued and finished this coming weekend.

February 2018

Happy New Year. Already february, so it is perhaps too late to wish you all a happy new year LOL.

Long time since I made a blogpost. No excuses, but sometimes other things is more important than blogging.  I guess you all understand that. Can't promise anything, but I will try to blog more from  now on.

I have spent some time sewing together with  my daughter.  I gave her one of my sewingmachines and now we have had two sewing weekends together.  She is so clever, and I am so happy to sew together with her.  She even made her own pattern on knitting needle cases, how clever is that!!

One finish for me so far in 2018.  This table runner was so fun to sew.   I am so pleased how it turned out.  Think i will make more of these blocks, maybe for a pillow.

This weekend my quilt group has invited Helle Løvenskiold to teach us how to use the Learning Curve Ruler.  And I have packed a box with fabric for this class.  Want to make something for spring/easter.

October quilt meeting

Last thursday in october my quilt group had invited Helle Løvenskiold to come and tell about her quilting life.  She visited us five years ago and she had indeed sewed a lot of new quilts since last time. 

42 ladies joined this evening and we all agree that we had a great evening with loads of inspiration.

Helle gave me permission to share photos of her quilts.  But remember, one thing is to see them on the blog, another thing is to see the quilts in real.  Enjoy the photos:

And then there was show and tell from the ladies in my quilt group:
