Blogging sleepover

After sitting out on the porch for a long time we had to go indoors because it started to get a little bit chilly and the rain came. Prepared a nice dinner with salmon, pasta and salad for the girls.
And then we continued working on our angel project. Lise have finished all her blocks now and started to rotarycut the fabric that goes between the blocks. We got a little bit envious on her coming so far already.
And she started to play with her fabrics and sew.............
Anne Ida and Lise in my tiny little sewingroom. Anne Ida was allowed to dive into my green fabrics to add to her angel quilt. It feel so good to share some of my stash and the fact is that I could not see she had been in my green stash!!
And this is how Lise is putting it all together. Instead of only using squares like the pattern is saying, she is using rectangels and squares together. I have planned to do my quilt like this.While Lise working in my sewinroom Anne Ida .....
.....Hanne and I was stitching on our blocks. I've just a little bit of stitching on three blocks left to do...........then I'm going to start cutting the sashing between my blocks.
We tried to get in touch with Fiona who arranged this blogging sleepover party, but she was already gone to bed when we called on her LOL That's the time difference. She's going to bed late when we starts our night :) Australia is about 8 hours ahead of Norway.
Today the lost angel came. My friend Bjørg (no blogger) is also working on The Angel Story quilt.
And here is Bjørgs blocks. She is also doing them in japaneese fabrics.

And isn't this a wonderful photo. Here is all our Angel Story Quilt Blocks together.

What an angel party we've had.
And the best of it is that we are going to repeat this blogging sleepover.

Saying for today:

Those who sleep under a quilt,
sleep under a blanket of love

Skikkelig flott å få følge med på engle-festene deres! Å arrangere enn hel-natt var en god ide.
Gleder meg til å følge dere videre, ja.
