Antique Sampler progress

001

The last days I have appliqued the outher border for my Antique Sampler.  And today all four sides was ready and I sewed it on.  And as you see I have company while sewing in my sewingroom.  Love watching (read: hearing) series, movies and shows on my computer.  Or I just turn on the radio to listen to music.

I even mitred the corners. It was easy to do and it looks good. 

003

Appliqued the leafs in each corner.  Of course Rusken had to supervise it all.

And voila……my Antique Sapmpler top is done.  Just in time to bring it to Tønsberg and show it to Sue.  This quilt was a little challenge for me, because there is so much blue fabrics.  My plan was to make a blue and brown quilt, but as you see a lot of red and pink has sneaked into it. I kind of like it, but I think it has to grow on me.  I have started to collect blue fabrics now and have challenged myself to use more blue fabric in my quilts.  Because every time I see other quilters using blue fabrics I think it is so beautiful.  But still my favorite colour is RED.

Saying for today:

Så nydeleg!! Eg må nesten le når eg les om ditt ambivalente forhold til blått, eg har det akkurat på same måten, eg synest det er vakkert, men er ikkje heilt komfortabel med å sy av det. Eg har kjøpt noko nydeleg blått frå Andover, så eg skal utfordre meg sjølv når eg blir i betre form! Heldige du som får treffe Sue! Lukke til, eg er sikker på ho blir fornøgd med toppen din!

It looks lovely May. It also made me chuckle a lot when you talked about trying to include more blue. My favorite color is red - just like you - but so many of my quilts seem to turn out blue!!!!!

Underbara blogposter har jag tittat mig genom...många fantastiska kviltar, vänskap, familj och inte minst kviltning...
Tusen tack för allt ögongodis...:0)

Isn't it funny! I agree with you, I love all the blue quilts I see, and I have lots of blue fabrics, but I always use red/pink, yellow and green in my quilts :D

Denne toppen er bare utrolig flott. Jeg var innom Katrine i helgen og kjøpte faktisk dette mønsteret. Har lest litt på det, og "grugleder" meg til å gå i gang. Men håndsøm er jeg såvdit starta med, så det blir en lang prosess tror jeg. Hadde faktisk tenkt å sy den i blå farger, men er ikke helt sikker ennå. Håper jeg kan kontakte deg underveis. :-)
