13 ladies joined this sewing saturday. I had hoped for more ladies to join, but I guess they were busy doing other things. But the ladies who was there had a wonderful time sewing and laughing while making Warming Quilts.
This is the label Lise made to sew on the back of the quilts. It says: Warming quilts, Elverum action 2009.
And here is some photos from the long sewingday; starting at 10:00 until we turned off the lights at 18:00.
Anne Ida was alway smiling while sewing. And look at the big pile of fabrics that have been given to these Warming Quilts sewing days. And not to forget all boxes of fabric we had brought along to use in our quilts. Plenty of fabric.
Anne Ida finished her quilt very fast. She used blocks from a swap. Bente is planning her quilt at the floor.
And during the day more quilt tops was finished.
And even more.
It was amazing to see the quilt tops being finished. And every lady was so happy making them.
Thank you ladies for joining me on this wonderful sewing together.
These quilts will be (when they are finished) be donated to the Warming Quilts action. And soon some long term sick children at the Radiumhospital or Rikshospital will enjoy these quilts as a warming thought from us. And I know I will arrange such a sewing day later this year.
And back home at my place we could relax after a long day. And what do quilters do when they relax. Some are looking in quiltingbooks (Bjørg), some are sending a sms to a friend in australia (Anne Ida) and some are looking at blogs (Hanne and Bente)
And some are taking photos (Lise)
Thank you ladies for a wonderful weekend.
This is the first time I have tried to blog using Windows live writer. I am very curious how this post will show in my blog. Perhaps a complete unreadable chaos LOL. If it works maybe I will use it more.
Saying for today:
