Elverum quiltgroup january meeting

Every last thursday in the month Elverum quilt group has their meeting. Today it was a lot of ladies there and several had very beautiful things to show.

A beautiful wall hanging with daffodils
This table runner was made with only silk fabric.
A quilt for a little child
This quilt is for a kindergarten
The next four quilts is made after a swap with some american ladies. It is some years since the swap and today these four quilts was shown.


Still cold weather, but it is told that it will get warmer in few days. I hope so. I had a great time at the meeting today, and I got a little bit stitchery done. I had planned to quilt more on my "Say it with flowers" but I have forgotten to bring my quilt thread. Luckily I had brought a stitchery too. I made a promise to a good friend that I start working on my cube quilt. I started it about six years ago. Half is done, but the other half..... I will do some piecing of this one this weekend......I think :)

Quilt saying for today:

You can always tell a quilter
from the threads she wears!

......and cathair :)

thanks for sharing the photos from your quilt group. It's always nice to see what others make.

I like your cube quilt. A great way to use up scraps. How big is each piece of fabric? This something that i would like to have a go at, just need to find a pattern.

I love the daffodils and your blocks - 6 years is a long time to work on a project. How big will it be when you're done?

Oh, what a nice visit to your group, you let us make with these nice photos !.....And OOOOOOOOOHHHH how nice are these cubes ! Just as Cynthia says : "I'd LOVE to make them, too!"... This is a story without end : each time I visit my friends blogs, there's ALWAYS a pattern, that I'd like to start, abandoning the rest ! Ain't that a shame !And to think you work on them, while waiting for me to catch up with AD ! LOL
Biiiiig hugs & smiles !

Love your saying at the end-I always seem to have thread and cat hair on me. And I loved the daffodil wall hanging-makes me think of Spring which seems far off on this very cold day in NH.

Hanne said...

*for me - always covered in thread and dog hair *S* that's when I'm happiest.
