This weekend I started a new hand sewing project. And I have had so much fun digging through my scrapbox and also challenging myself choosing fabrics I never thought would go together.
It is the Halo quilt (design Jen Kingwell). Bought the templates some time ago. Still waiting for the book to arrive, but I had no problem to figure out how the blocks are buildt by looking at photos on the internet.
My first two blocks and I have prepped three more. So fun sewing these blocks.
Some finishes since last time I blogged. These dresden plate blocks have been laying here for a long time. Was not sure what to make of them. But when I decided to make a tablerunner I finished it in no time.
When Hanne made a blogpost about one of her Ufo's recently, she reminded me that I too had the same one some place in my sewing room. Time to finishe this one too, and I am so happy how it turned out. It is on my kitchen table now.
I love stitchery and in my ufo box I have SEVERAL stitcheries. Time to make something of some of them. These three small stitcheries is now decorating small bags. And I still have plenty of stitcheries to turn into something. Planning to make christmas gifts.
So happy this quilt is finished. Floral Garden (design Irene Blank). Long time since I started this one. I decided that I did not want to make more blocks and just use the one I had. I am very pleased with the size of this quilt. I do not have a lot of big walls to hang my quilts. So this size was perfect.
I love Irene Blanks patterns and this one is from her book Focus on Applique. Love doing needleturn applique and I enjoy so much working on these blocks.
We are having extraordinary september weather now. Wonderful days with summer temperatures. This photos was taken last thursday while I was cleaning my windows on the top floor.
