Progress on AS and SC

001

This weekend I have been doing great progress on my Antique Sampler. All blocks finished and I started to do the layout of the quilt.

002

Then I discovered I was lacking 3 blocks. What……I really thought I had finished them all.

003

But after looking through my Antique Sampler sewing box filled wiht fabrics I found the three missing blocks in the bottom of the box. Did the applique yesterday.

And today I sewed the top together. When I bought the kit (fabrics) for this quilt I intended to make a brown and blue quilt. But then I started to add a little bit red and a little bit of pink to make it MY quilt, and the look of it has changed totally. As you see I am making a smaller version than the original quilt.

Today while visiting Laila I glued the pieces for the outher border. I love my glue pen. It is so fun working on this quilt now.

I have also done a lot of progress on my Scandinavian Christmas. Sitting out on the porch these days when we have had +28 C in the shadow has been so lovely.

But today it is a chillly wind and it is best to stay indoors at the sewingroom.

Saying for today:

People say best friends are hard to find,
that's because the best is already mine!

Stunning and so much more meaningful for you when you add your own touches.

What a great quilt. One of my first quilts was a Log Cabin - I did a class and came home to make the rest of the blocks. I worked out that 6 x 4 = 20 (!!!!) and so when I came to lay it out I was obviously 4 blocks short. I don't think I will ever forget that 4 x 6 = 24 now LOL!
Those Christmas blocks are gorgeous!
