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 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.

025

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

Vitamine Q refill

Saturday morning Hanne came for a vitamin Q refill weekend. We have spendt some time stitching while wathing old movies on tv, chatting and laughing. It feels so good putting the feets up on the stool, just relaxing with a good friend. No stress, just vitamin Q.

And today some time in the sewingroom together.

005

Hanne stitching on a cute pouch.

007

and I sewing on my miniatureblocks. I want to have the top on this quilt ready for thursday when we have our quiltgroup meeting.

010

I finished putting on borders on all blocks, and have picked the fabrics that I will finish this quilt with. Hope I get some time the next day doing it.

012

Hanne showed me this cute little purse that she readently had finished. And she gave me fabric and a transfer-eze with the stitchery on so I could make my own.

003

I’ve also done my homework for Antique Sampler that Bj√łrg and I am sewing together. I like the look of this quilt so far.

002

And look who is havig fun with their new toy.
