A lot of vitamin Q


This weekend I have been to the cabin with good friends.  The sewingmachine was on the table from early morning to late night (actually it never came off the table).  Wonderful autumn sun so we did go for a long walk and we picked some berries to make dessert.


As always I had brought too many projects.  I had one main focus this weekend and it was gifts for two newborn boys.


I almost finished both of them.  Just have the binding to sew down on one of these quilts.  Boys need cars on their quilts.  I found the motives on internet, just small photos, so I had to draw them bigger for application.  I am really happy the way they turned out.


The last times we have been on the cabin we have all worked on our log cabin quilts.  All four of us bought the same kit, but after adding fabric from our own stash, they looks so different.  Will take photos later when they are all finished.


Have to measure the bed to see how many blocks I need.  So far I have 51 done and 9 prepped to be sewn.  Think I will prepp more blocks this way, then it is so easy just to grab one and sew.


My hadsewing this weekend was the hexagon flowers, and I have sewn all the coloured flowers.  Still have a lot of white flowers to sew before I can start sewing it together.  So fun working on it.

Right before leaving home I grabbed this tin box filled with hearts for the Scandinavian Christmas Quilt.  I will give this quilt some focus now.  Just three months until Christmas and my goal is to have the top finished soon.  The main part of the quilt is sewn together, so I just have the outher border with the appliqued hearts and the stitched snowflakes to make.

This has been a wonderful weekend filled with vitamin Q. 

Saying for today:

The boy quilts are really lovely. Great idea. Love the blues. You always seem to have so many projects on the go, more than me and that says something! Always lovely to look at your blog. Glad you are feeling better now.
