Making cubes

First of all; thank you all for visiting Crazy Mom quilts blog and leaving a comment refering to me. I did not know so many unknown bloggers together with my daily bloggerfriends have done this for me. So now I have a whole lot of new bloggers on my bloglines. So if you still haven't visit Crazy mom quilts please do. She is having a 200th post contest and a giveaway extravaganza until the end of this week. Please visit her blog and pleeeeeaaase mention in your comment that I "May Britt - Abyquilt" sent you to her blog. May be both you and I win. The one that send most bloggers over to her blog win that beutiful quilt she have made. Please help me :)



Today I was in our local quiltshop and took a photo of a christmas quilt I designed some years ago. I have to print new patterns for sale and wanted a new photo of it. The saying is : Engler daler ned i skjul (norwegian). From the old christmas song Glade jul (english; Silent night). Means something like: angels coming down from the sky.

After that I went to visit my friend Irene. She and I was going to make a new model for the shop. Making a cube quilt from Jinny Beyers newest fabrics. I have to be careful with rotarycutting.



So Irene did the rotarycutting.......

I sewed the pieces together


And then we started to play with the cubes

I guess you too have taken photos standing on a chair LOL....
and then some more sewing......

And this is how far we got today.............
Saying for today:

Scarecrows, corn rows...
Pumpkins on the vine......
Leaves curl, wind swirls..
Fall is right on time........

Greetings From Georgia. Yes, I was wondering who you were. I see that you recently had your b-day. Mine will be next week! I'd love to win the quilt too, but I'm thinking you know more folks than me!

I do love the Christmas quilt you photographed. It is beautiful.

I also noticed you live in Norway. My husband's mother's family is from Sweden and his father's side is from Norway. So all very interesting.

Smiles,

Congrats on winning Amanda's quilt! She does beautiful work, I've seen several of her quilts first hand. I am loving your cubes quilt here. I always wondered how those were put together. I don't do so well with triangles, but this is tempting me to try!

Dawn said...

Your angels are adorable! And I love how your cubes look! I'm glad you took it easy and let Irene do the cutting! And Yes, I have stood on chairs for pictures before!
