Not so many photos from Hannes visit. We totally forgot to take photos. Why…….because we were so busy sewing and chatting. We had one common project together. Sewing this block called Carpenters wheel. We both saw this block in a quilt NQF’s the annual quilt meeting and agreed this had to be our easter sewing.
I bought the fabric bundle used in the displayed quilt, not the fabric that I usually works with, but it was going to be a challenge for me. I also choose to do it the EPP way. It was fun, but I regret using the linen as backgroundfabric. The linen does not work well together with the paperpieces as the linen expand unlike ordinary fabric. So I had some trouble matching the seams. I guess linen is more usable in machinesewing, and I love using linen in tablerunners and as a applique background, but not in EPP. But I finished the block and I think I will turn this block into a pillow.
Hanne did her block the american handpiecing way (sewing on the line). And the block is SO beautiful. Sewing on the line is actually faster than EPP and I remembered how I loved sewing on the line. Not done sewing on the line for some time now, but I have one abandoned project that I do this way, so that one will be pulled out of the box soon.
Hanne and I agreed about some goals this year. We both have a lot of WISP’s that we want to have finished, and this is my list (written on a Kiwi shoppinglist LOL). Will make a post of this later.
Hanne went back home yesterday, and I decided to do some more quilting on my basketquilt (only 10 baskets left to quilt) while watching the easter crime serie on tv. But I never knows who’s the murderer because zzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Saying for today:
