It has been a couple of busy weeks here, I have not spent much time in Quilt Corner.
I have spent time with quilt related activities thought, and it has been a nice time.
This quilt came back from Merete, my machine quilter on Sunday, and I love how it turned out.
The sewing down of the binding is on my to-do list for the weekend.
I am aiming at at least 2 finishes this weekend – this purse still needs some work too.
It’s time to dig out a zipper and get at it.
For the last 3 months I have really made an effort about using more than what I buy, all over the house, and the Quilt Corner is no exception.
It is time to cut some more jelly rolls for care quilts. I do not use much fall colours anymore, since we changed the colours in our house from matching brown to matching grey / blue.
One of my guilds is having a sew-together for care quilts this weekend, and I plan to participate tomorrow.
I think I will make a Jelly Roll Race quilt – they are fast and fun. I am not doing a quilt in an hour though, like the instruction says, but I can do it in a couple of hours when I have cut the stripes first. I plan to cut today and sew tomorrow.
A really big advantage about using from what I have and pairing down a bit, is that I find the real treasures – some of them well hidden, like these purple fabrics.
I am really really looking forward to use these fabrics shortly!
Hanne, Great quilt. Mirrette's quilting is exquisite! Love your optimism pin because it's so true. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
The purse looks just darling so far and your machine quilter did a beautiful job. Hope you have a great day dear friendReplyDelete
You quilt is lovely. Simple but oh so pretty with the quilted feathers. Happy Spring! :-)ReplyDelete
I would not do a quilt in an hour either - that kind of takes the fun out of making a quilting and turning it into work!ReplyDelete
The Quilt looks great. The quilting is fantastic.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend, Manuela
Your quilt is beautiful, I love the subtle colours. And the quilting makes the icing on the cake :)ReplyDelete

That quilt is really beautiful and the quilting is just perfect. Love your fabric stash, especially the purples. I have made one of those jelly roll quilts but it took a few hours. I did it with my quilt group. Have fun.ReplyDelete
For en flott blogg du har, du lager utrolig mye fint!
"Catching up" er en quilt som virkelig setter meg i vårstemning!
Så ser jeg at du har mistet assistenten din, Tullerusk,og jeg har full forståelse for at savnet er stort! Jeg måtte selv gi slipp på min Gråpus i september, han ble 12 år gammel, og var en kvalitetskontrollør jeg virkelig kunne stole på! Han fikk med seg ALT som skjedde på syrommet, og trampet iveg på stoffer og garnnøster:) Men han ble syk, og måtte få slippe smertene. Forferdelig tomt i huset etterpå, og det tok bare to måneder før vi fikk tak i FIA fra dyrebeskyttelsen. Hvis du besøker bloggen min, ser du et bilde av henne :) Hun har allerede rukket å bli en ganske så habil syassistent, men er foreløbig mest opptatt av å trille trådsneller :)
Tusen takk for masse inspirasjon - du er herved lagt til i blogglista mi ( rimelig fersk blogger, men begynner å bli varm i trøya!).
Ønsker deg ei fin helg!

the quilt is a beauty and love the redwork piece. Happy stitching with your 2 hour quiltReplyDelete
For en fantastisk Quilt,Hanne. Flott mønster og nydelig Quilting. Lurt å ta en periode med bruk mer enn du kjøper. Tror jeg skal følge ditt eksempel noen måneder nå.ReplyDelete
Utrolig flott det blir, selv med 'bare' 9-er blokker!ReplyDelete
WOW...your quilt is so beutiful !!!ReplyDelete
Denne quilten ble utrolig vakker :)ReplyDelete
