Another day in class with Sue

001

Yesterday Hanne and I did some homework for todays class.  And after eating breakfast and packing our suitcases there was some time left before leaving for the class.  And what do a quilter do.  Some sewing of course!  This is why I love English Paper Piecing so much.  You can sew it anywhere and anytime.

Guess Hanne is taking some photos for her blogposts later today.

There was a bigger class today.  And several ladies was travelling a long way to attend these classes.  Some ladies came from Bergen, some from Kristiansand, some from Oslo and then me from Elverum.  Addicted ladies that knows how to enjoy several days with sewing and friendship.

Today we was making this tablerunner and I learned some new tricks doing applecore and clamshells.

Sue is a wonderful teacher and I know that I will take more classes with her.  Hope she will return to Norway with new projects.

And my clamshell rows was growing and growing.

And happy smiling faces all over the classroom.

Some wonderful days that had to come to an end.  Now I am safe back home with a vitamin Q level sky high.

Rest of the day I will be relaxing with my feet up and some more hexagon or clamshell sewing. This is the two projects we have been doing these days. To the left “One day at a time” and the tablerunner project is called Remember when.

And of course I had to buy some of Sue’s new projects.  The one to the left is called Mrs Hartigan’s Stash and I LOVE this one.  Åsne at Quiltefryd had made a starter bundle of fabrics to make this quilt and I bought it together with fabric for the cornerstones and the background.  I also bought the pattern “In my garden”. 

Now my head is filled with ideas and vitamin Q.  Thank you Sue for giving us some wonderful days. Big hug from me.

Saying for today:
