Vitamin Q


This weekend Hanne and I have spendt a lot of time in my sewingroom.  While Hanne was playing with her log cabin……


…..I started with one of my UFO’s.


This is going to be a Christmas cushion.  I sewed the borders on and quilted it, but then I got distracted from something Hanne brought me.


I had ordered this package with templates and paper pieces, and of course I had to try out some of the blocks.  I love Sue Daleys patterns, and with this package I can play a lot with templates and make all kind of hexagons.  You can se some of the variations here, here, here and here.


I want to make my quilt in red and white.  Hanne had a big laugh when I started to pick out the red fabrics from my boxes, because I had told her I just had a few red fabrics.  And this is just some of the fabrics I showed Hanne.  I think there is some more ……………LOL  But you all know I love red fabrics.


I was not sure which fabrics that was already washed or not, so I gave all of them a turn in the washing machine. 


Rusken had to inspect all the fabrics. 


And then I was ready to start making some hexagons.


My first two hexagons is finished.  It is so fun to make them.


I also finished sewing down the binding on these six placemats.

Saying for today:

I am stitching the same christmas wreath as you. So far I intended to make a wallhanging out of it. But now I've seen your cushion. I am doubting. That too is a wonderful idea, maybe even better.
