Leannes House BOM

Leanne Beasley is coming to Norway the last week in october to give classes. And I have registered in one class. I do not know what class it is yet. I just know I want to meet her. I am so looking forward to this. Last year I started Leannes House BOM. I did five blocks and then it was abandoned. Why, I do not remember, but when I now have restarted on it again, I think it was because I regretted not using batting behind my blocks.

This weekend I found my abandoned blocks and sewed the last four blocks. My sewing room is the most chilly room in the house :) And now I have 4 1/2 blocks to stitch during the summer. It would have been fun to show Leanne it when she arrives.

Block #1 is finished

Block # 2 is also finished

Block # 3 is lacking flowers where it says SPRING

Block # 4 , have done just a little bit stitching on this one

Block # 5 is finished......no it's lacking a little heart down to the left

Block # 6 ready to be stitched

Block #7 ready to be stitched

Block # 8 ready to be stitched

And finally block # 9 also ready to be stitched


So now you know what I'll bring with me on my summer holiday. Stitchery is very easy to do in a hot summer day. Everything is drawn on the fabric and you don't need to think about what you are doing.....almost. So if you are wondering what to bring on your summer holiday I recommend stitchery. If you don't have a pattern there is a lot of free stitchery pattern to find on the net.

Saying for today:

PS: I am overwhelmed by all the comments I got on my previous post. Thank you so very much. The winner of a drawstring bag will be picked early tomorrow (norwegian time).

May Britt, they are sooo beautiful ! I'm sure Leanne will be delighted to see your beautiful quilt finished !

Yes, nice stitcheries are the best things to bring along, while on vacations...
I'm going to prepare some, to take with me to Italy.

Big hugs & smiles !

May Britt those are so pretty, can you remember the name of the bom? I agree stitcheries are so easy and you don't have the weight or the heat of a big quilt on your lap.

Judith said...

Great fabrics and colors for the quilt. I am doing her Journey of a quilter and now have pieced 3 and am doing the stitcherie on one. Hope to sew also the fourth one and than I can work on the stitchery next weekend when I am on a little long weekend holiday.

Hanne said...

Your blocks are lovely May Britt :-)
I had to pick the red heart off my block # 1, as it frayed to much, even with fusible web. I will redo it tomorrow, with another fabric.
Seeing your blocks again is an inspiration, as is the fact I am signed up for Leanne's class as well :-)

These are really pretty blocks! I have not seen this pattern before.

Your stitchery is beautiful, and I like the fabrics a lot.

Connie said...

They are so beautiful and that's a project I could enjoy doing. I haven't seen her patterns in the states yet but I understand they are now available so I will do some checking for them. Her patterns are so yummy.

Those are sooooo pretty. I started some stitchery yesterday - I'm happy to say that the stitches came back to me easily and I shall show my "stitch lesson" on my Blog as soon as time permits.

And I totally agree with stitchery being portable - I already found out how thankful I was to have something to do with my hands while sitting outside in the gorgeous weather this weekend.

The stitching is so beautiful! You're right. For the summer, stitching would be a good take a long projects. I'll have to look at some of the sites to see if I can find something cute.

That is a beautiful quilt. I just love it! Are some of the blocks hand appliqued? You guys are such a tease with all your embroidery work! I'm getting real close to picking up again! Like I need another hobby! lol Enjoy your class. Thanks for sharing!

Tracy said...

Hello! This is my first visit here! You have a wonderful blog, and this quilt you are working on is fabulous--it is so colorful & cheerful! I'm more of a sewer& knitter than a quilter, though I do like to dabble in quiling from time to time. I'm an American living in Norway, btw. I look forward to coming by here again. Happy Days! :o)
