Are you still with me?

Both friday evening and saturday evening we all met in the big conference room.

Friday evening some of the teachers had ashow and tell with the quilts they was teaching this weekend.  Sorry about the photos, but it was a little bit dark to get good photos.  But enjoy the photos and get inspired.  Remember it is so much better to really be in the room and see them for yourself.

Saturday evening the foreign teachers gave “Who we are and how we work” and showed us even more quilts.  It was very interesting and I am so happy these teachers came over to Norway to teach at the quilt festival.

Norwegian Quilt Festival–part six

Saturday, third day of the quilt festival.  Have signed up for a third class.  This time with Jo Morton.

She is so sweet and I had such a great time in this class.
We started sewing blocks for the quilt behind her.

My first block. And this is a quilt I will work on.  Already told the other girls that this will be the next cabin trip project.

Still more to come…….

Norwegian Quilt Festival–part five

And then…….SHOPPING.  Think there was about 25 shops and 600 ladies waiting for the shops to open.  Loads of inspiration and loads temptations.  And when we entered the shops Hanne told me:  “Now you got that look in your eyes”.  Wonder what she meant LOL

The shops even had open for “midnight shopping”.  So after dinner, show and tell with the teachers, and some wine, just imagine how it could be. Just enjoy the photos and feel the mood.
