Quilters christmasparty - part one

Thursday I took the bus to Oslo, met Hanne and then we drove the road out to Bente in Hønefoss. The three of us was going to have a quilters christmasparty with sewing, laughter, friendship and just fun.

The party started at Ringerike quilt guilds november meeting. And as always there was a lot of wonderful quilts at show and tell. Let's take a look:

This is LeKaQuilts beautiful quilt made in needleturn.

Cubes made of Inger.

A "little" adventcalender Tove has made for her DD.
Think this will be a adventquilt instead LOL
Tove, maybe you should cut 1/2 inch stripes for the log cabin instead.

Inger-Solveigs wonderful hexagon quilt made with 60 degrees ruler

and a quilt made of leftovers from the previous quilt.

And Inger-Solveigs wonderful samplerquilt.
This is a spectaculare quilt,
and her handquilting is extraordinary.
A masterpiece.

Friday morning we had planned to start sewing warming quilts. But electricity company had other plans for us. They took the power between 0900 and 1300.
So what do quilters do then. Handstitching, yes of course we could have done that, but the light was too bad. Just relaxing and talk, yes we could have done that too, but ................
Going to a quiltshop!!!!! Much better idea.
This was my first time to visit Lappemakeriet in their new shop locations. And this is one of my favorite quilt shops. They always have a lot of inspiration and the fabric range I like.

This is a great idea. Just collect your christmas and angel stitcheries and put them together with blocks.

Lappemakeriet has made up a christmas gift idea table, and there is a lot of wonderful things to find here.

Here is Hanne waiting to get her fabrics being cut, and she is having a look around to see if there is any more fabrics that that wants to come home with her.
Did I buy anything?????
Quilters christmasparty .......more to come.

Saying for today:
May Peace be your gift at Christmas
and your blessing all year through!

I really like the quilt with the striped hexagon shapes. The use of the stripes make it so interesting. And the sampler quilt is wonderful!

May Britt, I just love the cubes quilt, it's amazing how light and dark fabrics, placed in a certain way, can add a 3 dimensional look to a quilt!!
