A new focus project

Yesterday my friend Bjørg came over with her boxes of fabric. A new project was to be started by both of us. You remember we sewed Joy of Life together, and now we have started on Whimsicalquilts Flutterby.

I really loved this quilt the first time I saw it on the internet. And now I have started my version of it.

This is some of the fabrics I am going to use in it. Just have to find a dark brown japanese fabric to use in it. I really have to learn to buy more than a 30 cm of fabrics. I have a lot of brown, but not big enough pieces.
All the quilting on my Christmas Wish quilt is done. Now I have to sew the binding on .....booooooooring.

Congratulations on another finish. I love Whimsical Designs so I am looking forward to watching the progress on this one.

Nydelig quilt i herlige farger. Gleder meg til å se den ferdig. Ja, enig med deg: Bare tull å kjøpe 30 cm, det blir som regel for lite! Hadde jeg bodd nærmere skulle jeg ordnet lukkekanten for deg. Syns det er flott å ty til foran Tv'en.

Sounds very exciting to start a new project.. if you get board with binding try prairie points there are free tutorials on line if you don't know how they are exciting to do and look just as exciting on quilts..most of mine have them around the edges

Lykke til med spennende prosjekt.
