Quilt for an Hour

Yesterday I did the first step in this november quilt. I asked Judy what she thought about my choise of colours, and this is what she did for me. She made the quilt in EQ and I am really satisfied with my colours. What do you think?

I am looking forward to make this one. And I get a chance to use all my thimbleberries I have collected through the BOM I never did. It feels good to reduce my stash :) Are anyone else making this quilt. I would like to see your progress too.

It have stoped snowing now. I guess during the day it have snowed about 40 cm or about 16 inches. The roads are getting shoveled and I hope all get their tires changed. Now I will make myself a cup of tea and look at tv while doing some applique. I am catching a cold. But I can't be sick now, because I am going away this weekend. Perhaps I take a glass of cognac too. It does not help, but it makes it more fun to be sick.

oough I really like the draft of your quilt that you are going to work on for November. I wish I was further along on the last one so I could join in again this month - but will just sit out for now but read along as all of you make it. I love the red! Pretty. Do you plan to use a white or cream? ~Bonnie

I am making the quilt too and have posted my colors. I did not take the time to do them up in EQ though it would have been a nice idea.

Wait... HOW much snow? 100 inches is... almost 3 meters deep.

May Britt
Sorry to tell, but it should be 16 inches of snow……Still it is a lot of snow. I just wish it were here.
I love your red quilt. But what happened to the fabric in yellow, green and blue that were on your table? I will follow you in your progress of making this quilt. I wanted to do it to, but you know your fellows on your shoulders? It was the angel that won this fight. I am not aloud to do this one at the moment. But I will support you during your quilt. And I’m looking forward to see how you are proceeding.
Take care. Treat yourself nice.
Warm hug.

LOL I am catching the flue now and my math was a bit wrong. Perhaps the flue has destroyed some braincells. Of course it is 16 inches.

Don't try to do too much applique after that medicinal cognac - you may have to do some reverse sewing otherwise!

Judy said...

I think the colors are fabulous!

You asked me about changes in the blog that I will answer in a private email!

computerpeach said...

that is going to be great - I wish I can join in, but I have way too many ufos to really start a new quilt.

that is a lot of snow!

Linda_J said...

the red and white or cream or whatever color that really will be in cloth could be very striking.

You poor thing though--hope you feel better soon. Isnt that always the way--start feeling funky when you have plans?

Nancy said...

16 inches of snow, I freak out at 6 inches. Your quilt will be wonderful with all the reds, Nancy in MT

Sweet P said...

16 inches is a perfect snowfall for me, even a little more than that is a good thing. I love your quilt colors. I'm doing mine in white, green and purple. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Patti said...

Love the colors May! but then I always have loved red, black and/or gray together.

Hei! Så masse flott du har sydd, her var det mye fint å se på. Jeg likte veldig godt alle de hjertene med små bilder og blonder, helt nydelige. :) Takk for hilsen på min blogg. :)
