Christmas meeting in our quilt group (long post)

Today was the last meeting this year in our local quilt group. Tradition is that every one brings a little present and put it into this santa bag. And during the meeting we get one package each. It is always fun to see what is in the packages. I got some christmasfabrics and gingerbread buttons this year.

And then it was time for Show and Tell.
Bjørg and I showed our Angel Storybook quilts. Of course (as usual) Bjørg is the speedy one and her quilt is finished. I still have to baste and quilt mine. Tried to sneak my quilt down in Bjørgs bag to let her finish it for me, but she is not easy to trick.........so I guess I have to do it myself. I see now that I want to add a border like her around my quilt.

Four girls showed the lovely bags they had made. The design is from one of the girls in our quilt group. Big bags to carry all their projects.

And this quilt is a "warming quilt" that is going to be given to long term deseased children project. We also showed the three quilts we made at the cabin (a post earlier this month). I did not get a photo of it.
January 17th I am arranging a BIG SEWING TOGETHER here in Elverum where we are going to make more "warming quilts" If anyone of you norwegian girls nearby Elverum wants to join just give me a sign and I give you more information. You are all invited.

A colourful quilt with hearts.

A beautiful christmas baltimore wallhanging.

A cute adventcalendar. I got this pattern and wanted to make it for this christmas, but I guess I have to wait for next christmas LOL Times is running too fast right now.

And I guess there will be a lot of table runners in the christmaspackages this year. Take a look at all these beautiful table runners.









And then there is those blocks in the background.

Next year we are going to celebrate our 10th anniversary in the local quiltgroup and we are going to make a flowerquilt for our big lottery. Look at these beautiful flowerblocks that are made. It will be a wonderful quilt.
Some closeups of the flower blocks.



Saying for today:
Count the night by stars, not shadows,
count your life by smiles, not tears.

I just love the Baltimore quilt. I have always wanted to make one. A machine embroidered one is a close as I have got so far. Not enough time!
