Today is Mothers Day in Norway and Bjørg and I have spendt the day basting quilts at the canteen at work. Quite a nice way to spend Mothers day we both thought.
Big tables are needed when basting big quilts. And I am so happy we can use these tables at the canteen. I’m to old to baste quilts crawling around at the floor.
Then it is so much better crawling upon the tables. Here is Bjørg basting her Antique Sampler Quilt.
We also glue basted a lot of quilts. This one have Bjørg sewed.
This one is mine and is a design from AnnAKa. This one is going to be machinequilted.
We was quite effective when basting our quilts.
This one is mine.
Bjørgs summer quilt.
And I love Bjørg’s double wedding ring quilt. I want to make one too.
The quilt I made at Gail Pan’s workshop in Tønsberg.
Now I have several basted quilts ready to be machinequilted. And when I look upon my bookshelf in the sewing room I see several more quilts ready to be quilted. So I guess I will spend some time with my sewingmachine practicing machinequilting. Still have a lot to learn, and have to figure out how my new sewingmachine is at this.
So what about my basket quilt………………
it is going to be handquilted. I feel I am not so good at machinequilting, and with all the needleturn on this quilt I do not want to take any risk machinequilting it. So now I will have several hours in front of the tv handquilting. I have chosen silk batting and it is a dream to handquilt. My goal is now to handquilt a little bit each day.
Someone is really enjoying me handquilting a big quilt again.
Rusken have found a new place to cuddle
