Quilt class in my quilt guild


This weekend I have been in quilt class.  16 ladies, and we have had so much fun together. No sewing machines, only hand sewing all weekend.  Needleturn, english paper piecing, stitchery, applique with buttonhole stitches, crazy quilt stitches and more.  Even though I have been sewing for years and done all this I really learned some new tricks.  When all my pieces are finished they are going to be pieced together to a sewing folder.

I have really enjoyed this weekend.  Loads of vitamin Q

Having fun


Having fun in my sewingroom this evening


Started to sew the ohio star blocks for my Phebe quilt.


And then I sewed house number 8 of my #365houses.

I know the house bug has hit several places now and it is so fun.  Happy house building everyone.

Love making these tiny houses from my scrap bag.

The housebuilding bug has hit my sewingroom as well as I know the bug has hit several other sewingrooms too. Thanks to a sleepless night, facebook friends, a blog and lots of scraps the housebuilding bug hit really hard on me. I am going to make houses for a whole year. 365 houses.


I have two plastic bags with scraps. I have decided to make houses only from these two bags.  Of course there will be added scraps to these bags, because I have other projects I am working on.  Only small pieces of fabric is used for these, so I guess the scrap bags will give me a lot of houses.


House #1 sewed late yesterday night when the bug hit me (read; hit us all)

Long time since I did foundation paperpiecing,  so I hope my tecnique will improve as I sew.


This morning house #2 before breakfast.
I am adding the sashing as I build my houses.

I am proud

My daughter came to visit our quilt exhibition last weekend and she brought along her camera.  She is a photographer and she did take some photos of me and my quilts. I am so proud of her work and I know I have a lot to learn when I am using my camera.

My quilt guilds 15 years anniversary exhibition


My quilt guild is celebrating their 15 years anniversary and this weekend we arranged an exhibition.  Outside the house we welcomed with banners waving in the wind.


And some tablerunners and more banners outside the door to welcome our visitors.


Happy members of the quilt guild selling lottery tickets.

Now I will take you a tour around the rooms to show you the exhibition.


Hope you enjoyed the tour and got inspired.
