Cabin vitamin Q

Late thursday evening (almost night) I packed the car and drove up to my friend Irene’s cabin.  Where Irene and Britt was waiting for me.  Bjørg came early friday morning.  A weekend with sewing together with good friends.

But…….

008

when you forgot to bring the necessary things (like pattern for one projects and the zippers to another project)  to your machinesewing projects, my sewingmachine stayed out in the hall all weekend.

009

I am so happy I brought at lot of other projects to do by hand.   Had a lot of prepping to do on the remaining blocks for my Svennebrev x 2.   A lot of pieces on the applique blocks…..

010

and a total mess in my corner LOL

026

One block finished hand piecing this weekend, and all the other ready to be pieced.

012

While me prepping and handsewing at the table, the other where doing a lot of machine sewing.

013

Think all of us had been digging deep in the ufos this time

017

or working on a BOM

016

No desing walls in the cabin, but the bed worked well to put these blocks on the right place.

018

As usual Bjørg did a lot of sewing.  Like this beautiful flower quilt,

021

a makeup purse and 12 placemats, all made from leftovers from a big quilt.

023

Britt finished this cute strawberry table runner,

024

and made the top for this bed cover (two similar quilts)

025

and also a third one.  She did a lot of sewing this weekend,
and a lot of quilting left to do.

027

I finished four blocks for my antique sampler, and prepped two more.  It was so fun doing needle turn applique on these blocks.
And I who have big problems working with blue colours, love these colours!!!

029

And I cut all the fabric for the small dark blocks and the outher border.  Have to cut the light fabric now.  Homework for next antique sampler meeting  we (Bjørg and I) have to finish the six big applique blocks and start making 4 x 3 small blocks. 

Another great vitamin Q weekend with good friends.  We have already set the date for our next cabin trip

Saying for today:

Friends are those rare people
who ask how you are
and then wait for the answer.

Hey May Britt! Looks like you have been having way too much quilting fun! :0) Love your blue and brown star block and you're much more patient to hand stitch than I am ... can't wait to see the finished quilt. Glad you had a great weekend full of vitamin Q. :0) Happy Stitching! Bear Hugs! KRIS
