This weekend I have been at the cabin together with two of my quilting friends. Always so fun being there. Lot of sewing, laughter and vitamin Q.
Of course I had brought all the stripes for my log cabin quilt. It is so fun sewing these blocks.
21 blocks so far. Have to measure my bed, but I think it needs about 80 blocks to make a bedcover. So still a lot of blocks to make.
When I came home today I had to lay all the blocks out on the floor. Adding some of my own fabrics to the kit I bought, it makes a totally different quilt than the one that inspired me at the last quilt meeting. And I think the reason to this is that I have chosen to have a red square in the middle of the block, and I have added some red fabrics in the stripes too. But as you all know, I love the colour red, so I am really pleased with the look of it so far.
Not just sewing all day
and night, we also went out for some long walks, and one day we spottet the work of a very busy beaver.
I had brought another new project to start too. Some new Christmas fabrics.
Sewing all day long
and the night too LOL and now I have six new Christmas placemats. Just have to sew down the binding. Really look forward to start using these.
My basket quilt is growing. At the cabin I also did a lot of needleturn while relaxing with a cup of coffee. I promised Sue that I would try to applique 10 blocks a week. She visited Norway four weeks ago and I have kept my promise (
and a little more). Now I have 51 basket blocks finished. These baskets are so fun to applique.
Saying for today:
