Quilting with rulers

This weekend I took a class with Merete Ellingsen in how to machinequilt with rulers.  I had bought a starter kit and during the weekend several other rulers came home with me.  Because this was so fun.

We started with simple lines to figure out how to use the rulers.  And then we got a sampler she had prepared for us.  We were now going to play with the rulers to fill in the open spaces.  And how fun was that.  I manage to do something, other rulers I have to practice more.

Back home I found this sample that I made in a class with Camille Roskeylly in 2014.  It has been put away in a box ever since.  Had no ide what to do with it until now.  This was perfect for playing with my rulers.

And this is how it turned out. Not perfect, but it is a start.  I need to find another testing project. Because there is one thing I learned this weekend, practice practice practice !!!

Saying for today:

Sewing weekend at Klækken

The weekend 20-22 april I was together with about 170 other quilters at a sewing weekend hosted by Kathrines Quitestue at Klækken hotel.  So fun to meet old and new quilt friends for a weekend full of chatting, inspiration, shopping, workshops, show and tells, delicious food, wine and a little bit of sewing.

Some photos from the workshop show and tell friday evening:

I went to some of the workshops and learned a few tricks:

And now some photos from Show and Tell saturday evening:

And then some inspiration from around the sewing area:

Kathrine had brought almost the whole shop to the hotel:

A wonderful weekend and I am already looking forward to next year.
