When I arrived the quiltmeeting Laila (Jacobs Quilt) and Irene told be to follow them into a classroom and I was told to sit down. And then they gave me a package. I wondered if it was from them...............but no...........I had to guess.................and I had no idea who it was from. So I had to open it and read the card.
A beautiful card from my dear friend Nadine. She had remembered my birthday on sunday and had made a conspiracy with Laila. I guess they have mailed eachother having a lot of fun planning this LOL So Nadine had asked Laila to buy this book from her. Now I understand why Nadine have been so quiet these last days and why Laila have been so strange. I can't understand how Laila have been able to keep this a secret for several weeks. Thank you Nadine for this wonderful surprise
Looks like I'm crying on this photo, and that's almost true LOL
This book was perfect because the topic of this quiltmeeting was "How to use japaneese fabrics". A well known Norwegian quilter and designer Kristin Pollen had brought a lot of beautiful quilts to show us. I took a lot of photos and she permitted me to show them on my blog.
So lean back, enjoy and get inspired............
The angels above are from a pattern from Anni Downs, and it is fun to see it done in japaneese fabrics. I've started making my angels in romantic colours, but now I want to make it in japaneese fabrics..............LOL
She have used only japaneese fabrics in all these quilts. Not a singel "wannabe japaneese". So now I want desperately to cut into my japaneese. But rotarycutting is still not my "to do" right now. I have to find another way to use them ...................hmmmm............thinking...........
I have a lot more to show you, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
Saying for today;
With joy on every birthday,
count your age by friends not years
