Some of us hadn’t slept at all 😉 and worked on the quilt at home…
Christina with her fantastic quilt…
A quick “fika” and then we were on track again…sewing…sewing…and having so much fun!!
Anna-Greta working on her quilt in pink and blues…
And here is Vega with her fun variation…
And Maria working on another variation
The technique was creative, just set your mind free and try
fun different settings, there is always another way to see something…
and the quilts DID change during these two days…
from one shape to another, adding something else…because the quilt needed just that.
Really FUN!
Louise in her creative chaos making letters…
Krista demonstrating mitered corners on my quilt …
Fika time and some thankyou gifts from us to Krista…
We gave her a bracelet that is very common from around here,
but with a modern twist, a triple, braided pewter bracelet in lamb skin with a reindeer horn button.
The Sami people have made pewter wire bracelets for hundreds of years in the Sami culture.
Think it was the Sami that invented the spun pewter wire.
And she also got a tea towel from a local designer… :)
The last hours in class created a light frenzy among us…
SEW SEW SEW…
Some came as far as to quilting the quilt…
and some like me still fiddling with nothing and everything… :)
Got some mitered corners done anyway… 😉
Love the look when the improved strips meet in the corner.
And then all of a sudden it was time to end and to show what we had done…
Christina’s quilt layerd for quilting…do wonder what they discussed?
Paparazzi photo shoot of our work… 😉

Christina had to leave early so that’s why her quilt ain’t on the wall of fame! 😉
Ahhhh… I think we did good…didn’t we girls!!
And THANKYOU Krista
For the best class ever!
The last night at the cabin went too fast …
and all of a sudden it was morning and time to say goodbye…
Did remember to take a photo of my gorgeous gift from Krista
The “Stepping Stones Table Runner”
Love it!!
Girls!!!
Thankyou Marica, Louise and Krista for making this little mini holiday in the
cabin the best… filled with lots of laughter and happiness!
And again Krista
Thankyou for coming to my part of the world,
teaching us how to IMPROVE (pronounce: impråvve) 😉 our quilts
It’s been such a pleasure!
Btw…Krista do you still know how to pronounce
-SNYGG… 😉
Bye bye …see you !!!

4 Thoughts on “Improve under the influence… Day two

  1. All good things must come to an end but you have been left with wonderful memories and techniques for you all to play with at a later date. You all did very well and they would grace any gallery.x

  2. Looks like a lot of creativity packed into those two days!

    Your mitred corners give your piece a lovely look. Have fun deciding how to quilt it.

    All the pieces created look great!

    I am in love with your piece! The low volume fabrics and the mitred corners work beautifully. I will have to come back here from time to time hoping to see the finished piece!

  4. Aww, now I am feeling very sad that it is all over. I had such a marvellous time with all of you lovely women. It didn’t even feel like work at all! I still practice saying snyggt but I fear without all of you laughing at me, it doesn’t feel the same. hahaha! I have shared the photos of everyone’s class work with my students here as well, as inspiration. I just so enjoyed seeing everyone make the project their own design. I can’t wait to see how yours will turn out Stina! kiss, kiss. Miss you!!!!

Hej...love to hear from you... :)
