A perfect day for sewing
It is cold outdoors, and quite wet as well, so it is perfect for sewing corner activities.
My Leanne's House block # 2 is done and I am eager to prepare another one.
Here you see the 2 first blocks together.
I started out with enough batting for the outside borders on my 2 blocks as well, but as I am carrying my blocks around the batting get more wear than I like and I have cut the extra off.
Our beloved grandcat did not like the heavy showers much yesterday either, and stayed indoors more than usual.
A good next-to-the-sewing-machine, laying-on-the-best-fabrics cuddle were had as well - a joy for both cat and quilter :-)
Here is my friend Bjørg's first Leanne's House block joined, and as you see she is making it ready for stitchery.
The deep reds and the browns are lovely together and bring my thoughts to cherries and chocolate.

I just love it both color variations.ReplyDelete
Ohhh Hanne, it's just gorgeous. I love your stitching, you're just so precise!ReplyDelete
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful blocks. I just love Leanne's patterns and both of you are doing a terrific job of interpreting them. I hope the weather was better today for you.ReplyDelete
Both versions are beautiful. Last night I started my Quilter's Journey by Leanne and have been enjoying it immensely. I love her designs so much.ReplyDelete
So are you embroidering thru the batting too?ReplyDelete
I just love your work Hanne, it's very exact.
You do such beautiful work.ReplyDelete
It is fun seeing the colors that both you and your friend chose. They are different, but both are lovely.
Both versions are sweet. Your work is beautiful. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
This is such a wonderful pattern, and you are bringing it to life with skill and beauty. I can just imagine the joy you feel as you wok on this.ReplyDelete
I've never done stitchery through batting. I presume you use a very thin cotton batting, right? I can't imagine what it would be like to do stitchery through batting - I guess I'm going to have to try it. I wonder just what is the reasoning behind doing it this way?
Oh, how beautiful! I'm so scared to start this project. I need to read through the instructions carefully to figure out the markings, etc. I'm watching yours closely! And loving every beautiful stitch you put in it!ReplyDelete
Oh, Hanne, your work is so beautiful. And just look at that fluffy cat. How I wish it were cold here; it is going to be 98 degrees today.ReplyDelete
It's going to be a very pretty quilt Hanne. You are doing a nice job as usual.ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful quilt project! Your colors are so pretty; this is always the hardest part for me.... choosing and combining colors!ReplyDelete
Summer, what summer, here it is raining buckets as well!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the two versions of a same design. It is very interesting.
Your embroidery is beautiful.
Hanne - I love your blocks. Why do you have batting on them? Did you stitch through the batting? I really need to get my block number 2 cut out. Thanks for the inspirtaion.ReplyDelete
Det teppet er bare nydelig...ReplyDelete
i think your embroider is really well done!!i received my Living the dream book from Leanneshouse just on monday and it is wonderful!!!ReplyDelete
So many people are making this quilt. Both sets are really pretty.ReplyDelete
At first glance I thought that was a print fabric but you have done all that lovely stitching in the white spaces---wow, Hanne! This is going to be a lovely quilt.ReplyDelete
And you have to know how much I adore Lillerusk the grandcat's picture. I could not help but smile looking at her.
So pretty Hanne, both versions are wonderful. We've had nothing but rain for the last 2 weeks, no summer here at the moment.ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous! Nice job.ReplyDelete
