Yesterday I went to the Norwegian Quilt association annual quilt meeting. Only for a day visit this time. So fun to meet up with friends, to shop and to get inspired. I give NQF credit for the work thay have done this year and the goals they have accomplished.
Several quilt shops had brought a lot for us to shop. Here is a photo from Kathrines Quiltestue. They are also visiting my local quilt group next thursday, so I get the opportunity to shop even more.
Here a photo from Trådsnella. Lots of goodies and inspiration
And it is always a joy to visit Lappemakeriet.
And here is Siv at Quiltegården.
Lots of inspiration in the shops.
It is always fun to visith the exhibition. There is both the members exhibition and the competition exhibition. Some quilts became my favorites.
Like this one made by Eirin H Smestu.
And this one made by Tove Holm. This one got 1.st place in the traditional class. The name of the competition this year was “Traditional Norwegian traditions”.
Love this one too. It is made by Kirsti Hovland.
Not much shopping this time. Think there was too much inspiration and goodies, so I could not sort out what I needed to bye. The fact is that I really do not need to buy anything. Have loads of everything in my sewing room.
But a new pattern, a new pigma pen (that one was on my shopping list), a background and some fabrics for another new project came home with me in my bag. Coming back home and downloaded all the photos from my camera, I can enjoy looking at the photos and get more and more inspired. Will save the photos from the shops and exhibition until later, because I am going to show them at my local quiltgroup at the april meeting. So until then you’ll have to wait.
I did not buy fabrics for the pillow (the pattern I bought yesterday). But when entering my sewingroom today wanting to start this project, I got a little bit worried that I did not have any grey fabrics for it. Looking in my boxes, drawers and shelves……………... I found that I had fabric enough for several pillows.
Saying for today:
