Yesterday I was so happy I got the opportunity to spend several hours at Kathrines Quiltestue in Oslo. I love this shop. Always so many temptations. The main reason for visiting the quiltshop was to find border and backing for my basket quilt. Now when all my basketblocks are done and I just have a little left to applique on the center block, the next step is to sew the quilt together.
I had a lot of fabric to choose between, but the one I choose for the border was the first one my eyes spotted when I came into the shop. And the backing is sooooooooooo beautiful.
Always a lot of inspiration in this shop. And I regret not buying the pattern for this tablecloth (hanging on the wall), but I will meet Kathrine in two weeks when I am going to give a workshop in Østerled, so I guess I am going to spend some money then.
I really had some great hours in the shop. Met some new quilters and got a lot of inspiration.
This is the border and the backing for my basket quilt. The backing is SO beautiful, and this quilt (read; all quilts) deserves a beautiful backing, I bought 4 yards of this and regret not buying more. And I think the red fabric will be perfect as border for this quilt.
And of course there was some 30cm that just had to come home with me. The red and white ones I will be using in my “This goes with that” quilt. The blue and brown fabric just yelled my name, even though I am not very comfortable sewing with blue fabrics. But it looks like I am coming there.
