Winter quilting vacation

001

I have spendt my winter vacation at the cabin with two good quilting friends.  We have sewed all day and night (eh….okey….the two others sewed almost all night……while I was sleeping LOL)  I really needed some days just with relaxing and sewing.  It has been so hectic at work latel so this was a really needed vacation.

I had as usual brought with me a lot of projects, but one of the projects I chose to work on was to do a lot of quilting on my basket quilt.  So relaxing to handquilt while chatting with the two other ladies.

We had agreed to sew more log cabin blocks this weekend.  Some time ago we all bought the same fabric kit, but we had to add more fabric from our own stash.  So I guess all four log cabin quilts are going to be so different.  My log cabin quilt is slowly growing.  45 blocks made so far, still have 35 more to make. 

Saying for today:

I love your baskets. I've seen them in blue but I really love your red ones. Log cabin blocks are one of my favorite quilts. I love the colors. Hugs

Don't you love going off with friends and sewing without having to worry about housework and errands! Your basket quilt is going to be so lovely! The colors in your log cabin blocks are wonderful and I like the setting you are using.

Sounds like the perfect getaway - quilting and friends :). It looks beautiful where you were taking a walk. That log cabin quilt will be stunning when your done - love the colors so far :). Keep plugging along with the basket quilt - you'll be done before you know it.
