First my four seasons. The winter quilt is after a pattern from Kristin Pollen which was published in a norwegian magazine some years ago. I feel that everyone in Norway made this quilt and I understand, I love the pattern. But when I had done winter, I felt that I had to make a spring, summer and autumn quilt based on the winterpattern. And so I did. Spring, summer and autumn is my own design. And I had fun making them. This four quilts are handstitched and handquiltet.
The next one is made of my ugly fabrics :) But I think it turned out very well. I love it. This one is pieced by machine, but I have quilted it by hand.
The quilt in the upper left corner is one of my favourits. I call it "Inside my head". And the quilt describes how everything sometimes turns around in my head :) All my ideas, my fantasy and my will to create. Made from a pattern I found in american P&C. Handstitched and handquilted.
The quilt in the upper right corner is called "My moonglow". Several of my friends have made the real moonglow quilt, but I wanted to do my own based on the colours. (and I did not afford to buy the whole real moonglowpattern at that time:) I gave this quilt to my DD and she loves it. When I told her today that I was going to sell some of my quilts she got afraid: Mum you do NOT sell my moonglow!!!!! She is safe. This quit will never be sold. I love it. Handstitched and handquiltet.
My first quilt I made. I show this and advertise for my handstitching and handquilting classes. This autumn is the first in many years I do not have enough participants to to start it. But I have to admit I feel a bit relieved, because I have too much to do now. And all my other classes are full.
A miniature scrapquilt and a welcom quilt.
In this cabinet I have some tablerunners and some miniatures. All of it is handstitched and handquiltet. The library did not have so much space for me to show my quilts. They are used to other crafters having small paintings aso. Not quilts that takes a lot of space on the walls. I brought home several quilts that I could not find any place to hang up there. Now you have probably understood that my passion is doing things by hand. I love my sewingmachine and do a lot of things on it, but it is handstitching and handquilting that is ME. Now I will take my sewing out on the porch and enjoy the sun. It is a very beautiful warm day. The trees have started to loose its leaves. The autumn with its colours are here.
