Log cabin at the cabin

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.

004

Of course I had brought all the stripes for my log cabin quilt.  It is so fun sewing these blocks.

006

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.

002

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.

007

I had brought another new project to start too.  Some new Christmas fabrics.

008

I really need new place mats for Christmas and I love these fabrics from Lynette Anderson and Whimsical quilts.

009

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. 

011

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:

Wow! It looks like you got more stitching done than talking! I love the way your log cabin quilt is coming together and love those placemats. Nearly there with the appliqued baskets too, I see. Well done.

Så mye flott du holder på med! Beundrer alle kurvene, og Log cabin slår aldri feil. Gleder meg til å se begge deler ferdige.

Sewing in good company makes it even more fun. Your red fabrics make the log cabin quilt look warmer, I like it! The pretty Christmas placemats will be a great TV project.

Wow Wow Wow - I am so impressed. You really worked hard and got so much done. I especially ADORE your placemats. I may just have to copy that idea. They are great. Good efforts also on your baskets. You are getting so many complete. Big congratulations!

It's great when you have nothing to do except sew and quilt! The dust bunnies must be knee high by now!
