Restarting a project and something new


I guess you all remember the red and white This Goes With That hexagons (design Sue Daley) that I started to sew some time ago.  8 hexagon finished, but I did not get the happy feeling making them.  I love red, but perhaps I have sewed to much red and white lately (the basket quilt) and I felt that I needed some other colours into my life right now.


When I saw these TGWT blocks at Kathrines Quiltshop this weekend I imidiately knew THIS was the colours I wanted to use in my blocks.  And of course I bought the bundle she had made for this.


This time it actually felt good opening the bundle of new fabrics.  I had prepped five red and white TGWT blocks, and now I restarted the whole project.  Swapping the red fabrics with another from my new bundle.


Really like the look of these blocks.  And suddenly I was smiling again when prepping these blocks.


Bundle number two is also opened.  This one will also be included in the TGWT + another project not started yet.  But I am seeing STARS.


The quilt in the corner is called Kristines starquilt, and it was one I had to come back to see again and again. This is also one from Kathrines Quiltestue.


Of course I bought the linen and the bundle for this quilt too.


And I love Sue Daleys templates to rotarycut the pieces I need.


Now I have two new projects to enjoy sewing.  And soon to come my easter holiday.  Only two more days at work and then ten days home sewing.

Saying for today:

Så nydelige stoffer i både nye og gamle blokker! Stjerneteppet der falt jeg også for, og håper å få tak i mønster og maler. Jeg håper på en produktiv påske for oss begge to :-)

Hi May Britt,
the new color combination is great - I love it. Have much fun 10 days sewing. I too have 10 days free and the weather will not be nice, so I will also spend time with sewing, quilting, knitting - will do only things I love. Hope so ;-)
Life can be so beautiful :-)

Lovely color combinations. And the star quilt is a dream :)

Your projects look lovely! It's wonderful how fabrics can inspire us! I do like Sue Daley's EPP templates. Her paper is much nicer than the other company I have ordered from. I sooo enjoy EPP. However, are you using Sue's method of basting with glue? I use thread basting and do not go through my templates, therefore I do not have to remove the thread. Thanks for sharing! Cheers!
