This year it was decided that Kviltföreningen Rikstäcket were going to attend to a big Expo here in Piteå .. Nolia …its huge and runs for more than a week… The mission … To get new members and spreading the joy of quilting … And what I do hope for… Get new YOUNG quilters to join in …with fresh ideas … Not that we older ones are without ideas… ;)
I said FRESH and a different way to see…a more modern look at things!!
 
We are a lot of local quilting groups spreaded here in the north of Sweden…
and it was decided that the different groups were going to be in charge of one day each at Nolia…
 
The group I'm in … Paltbitarna…had the honour to open and to take our stand down…
( couldn't attend the last day..because I was in Birmingham… :) )
 
Think I can talk for all of us…that this was a good experience…
and that we all have learnt from this…
it was so nice talking to new to be quilters and hopefully new members…
 
At least a little seed is sown…or maybe …sewn…. ;)
 
 
So please dont be shy…join in!!
We have lots of fun!!
 
And remember …this year our yearly meeting is in
Umeå 3-5 October
 
So … See you!!

Started 2008 and finished 2014…
Sometimes it takes a long time to have a finish…
but for some reason I think this quilt was meant to be finished
this year and for a special purpose
 
You see this quilt is now not in my belongings …
it now has a new owner…
 
A friend that have come to mean a great deal to me…
we have shared so much in these years we have learnt to know each other…
and to finally meet her now when going to Birmingham…
that was a special moment…and to have a quilt with me…that filled me with joy!
And of course I am talking about Shirley
 
And after having met her…
I know we will share lots more these coming years…
So nice to have good friends both near and far
and knowing distance isn’t all…and with Shirley …
she’s just an email away!! :)
 
Pattern designer of this Quilt is Rosalie Quinlan
And it was such a joy to applique
And it sure was quicker to get together than I thought…
and what was fun …
is that I discovered how much I really enjoy the hand sewing part…
I thought it was lost forever…
not being able to do this again with my aching fingers and all that have bothered me…
I still can do it…and that fills me with so much JOY!!
 
Think this quilt have given both of us joy…
my newly discoveries and for Shirley the fruit of it!!
 
Thankyou Shirley for becoming my friend …
for all the emails and all the support during my recovery …
it means the world to me…
And sure have given me the Joy of life back!!
