August quilt meeting

First quiltmeeting after a long summer holiday. Always fun to meet the other ladies at these meetings. Today we had a visit by Wenche and Irene from Northern Quilts.

001

The ladies came long time before the meeting was supposed to start, and the started to shop right away.

002

Had to ask them several times to sit down ……..

007

And then I introduced Wenche
who told all about her design and her Broderusk
(broderusk is a her norwegian word for her stitcheries)

And then we got to take a closer look at her designs

And of course some more shopping.

Last august we started to give the ladies in the quiltgroup patterns for two miniature blocks at each quilt meeting. With the challenge to sew them together as they wanted and to bring the finished quilt or top at this quilt meeting. Only six ladies had brought their tops/quilts to show today.

This is mine. Manage, thanks to Hanne, to finish my top on sunday. I want to start handquilting this very soon.

Look how different the all became. We have all used the same blocks.

Then there was time for show and tell. Looks like there have been a lot of working on UFO’s this summer. Just enjoy the photos

There are so many beautiful quilts that I can't even pick a favorite! Thank you for sharing!

What a wonderfully inspiring post. I particularly liked all the variations of quilts done with the same quilt blocks. Not only did they vary in colour but also in the way they were set together. Just wonderful.

Så mange flotte arbeider! Skikkelig inspirasjons-kick :o)
De teppene dere har sydd av samme blokker ble jo helt vanvittig flotte! Så forskjellige, men vakre alle sammen.
Ønsker deg en fortsatt god helg,
