A lot done during the weekend

006007009010

Yesterday I packed a big bag full of quilt tops, batting and backings. Going to the canteen at my work I planned to baste a lot of quilts.  Big tables makes it easy to baste.  If I had done it at home I would have been crawling around at the floor.  My friend Bjørg also came over and basted some of her big quilts. Now I have five quilts ready to be quilted.  And I am going to machine quilt every one of them.

Was a little bit scared starting to machin quilt my Summer Blooms, but I am quite pleased with how it have turned out during the day.  Soon I will try to make more swirls on my quilting.

When Rusken has not been outdoors in the snow and sunshine, he have joined me in the sewingroom.  But I guess he thinks I have been making to much noice today, with sewingmachine buzzing all day.

Now I have only the outher border left to quilt. It has been so fun quilting today, but I feel it in my shoulder now.

So the rest of the evening I will just relax ,watching tv and stitching on my new project Scandinavian Christmas.

Deilig å ha fått unna masse!

Teppet du quilter blir veldig bra. Greit å ta en liten del av gangen, spesielt dersom du plages i skuldrene...

Rusken er som vanlig helt herlig!!

Kjekt med forskjellige prosjekter, litt til hvert sitt bruk :D

Ha en fortsatt god søndagskveld!

klem

What a busy girl you have been. And now it will be fun (and perhaps a bit challenging) to finish up all those quilt tops. But doesn't it make you feel like you have accomplished so much! Good for you!!!!

Så godt og ha bord og gjøre denne jobben på. Lykke til med all quiltingen - det ser flott ut :-)

Lynda said...

What a huge weekend May Britt - your quilting looks beautiful.

Wenche said...

I wish I could do the same thing. My floor space isn't big enough for my big quilts :(
These "new" words are a pia :(

May Britt you did have a fantastic weekend, they all look so good..

Ondrea said...

That quilting is really looking good. Love the applique in progress too.

Frances Leate said...

What a very busy girl you have been and congratulations on doing your own machine quilting. I like to listen to audio books while I machine quilt and it makes the time pass very quickly, particularly when you are doing lots of ditch stitching. Take care.

Pokey said...

Anne Heidi said...

Å her var det mye fint å se- så flink du har vært!

Lene said...

Hei. Masse fint her:) Lite spørsmål - du bruker spraylim til basting? Hvordan unngår du at den sprayer i resten av rommet også? Og hvor lenge kan en quilt ligge før jeg må quilte den?

Madame Samm said...

Carole said...
