The last thursday in the month my quiltgroup has meeting. Today we were over 40 ladies there. My group have over 100 members. Most of the members do handstitching and handquilting. I can say that our quiltgroup is "famous" in that. But of course they use the sewingmachine. Some handquilt and some machinquilt. We are a lovely group of quiltladies. And below some photos of what the ladies had on "show and tell" today.
Linda asked me if quilting is "big" in Norway and the other Scandavian countries. Yes indeed. The Norwegian Quilt Association have almost 3200 members. And remember that very many quilters are not a member of this group, but have joined just smaller local groups or just sew for themselves. Every year we have our annual meeting with a lot of classes, lectures, shops, competitions aso. And every third year we have a scandinavian meeting between Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. And now Iceland have also joined this group.
Several ladies in our group have made Baltimor albums. This is one of them.
A lovely basketquilt has come home after getting quilted.
A beutiful bedcover.
One of my friends have designed this patterns and are going to give a application class this autumn
Several of are sewing on Jinny Beyers "Trip around the world". Me included. Another of my UFO's.
This is a new BOM in our quiltshop. I love it. I have told myself not to start another BOM, but...
And I managed to finish the binding of one of my ufo's. I was bringing all my hearts from the CoH swapping and all the laces I got, and my CQ books. Think there was some ladies who would like to start on CQ. But I cannot forget my traditional quilts. Have to get less crazy and do something with my ufo and other ideas as well. But tomorrow I am going totaly crazy visiting my CQfriend.
Good night everybody
