A quilt weekend at the cabin


Thursday evening after work I went to the cabin at Evensberget to meet up with some other quilting friends. Four of them had already arrived wednesday, and I picked up another and came thursday evening.  Lots of projects in our bags, sewingmachines, good food and some wine. Met my neighbour when packing my stuff in the car, and he asked if I was moving LOL. But quilters always pack enough to be safe.


Sewingmachine on the table at once when I arrive. My goal was to do a lot of sewing on my triangle frame for my Phebe quilt.


One of the girls had brought with her a new ruler that was tested.


And some of the girls made these lovely tablerunners.  Think I have to try out this ruler one day.




As you see a lot of things was done these days at the cabin.


I had brought with me my Natures Journey as handsewing project, and I got a lot of blocks done.


And manage to sew a lot of triangles.  5 of 8 rows are done. 


Then it was time to go home. Always sad to leave the cabin. But we are coming back in august.

Saying for today:

A wonderful time spent with your sewing machine and special friends - perfect weekend. Love your applique blocks and that border you worked on - those are pretty tiny. I just got back from retreat with friends as well and didn't accomplish as much as I had hoped - but sure had fun.

Always such a lovely time together with like-minded friends. You certainly achieved a lot of sewing. I usually just manage a lot of chatting and not much sewing at these gatherings!
