Have enjoyed sewing two quilts for friends… started before Christmas…and even before that in mind…but you know how it is…life gets in between…so I am most happy to finally have these little quilts made…and also sent and received …?

The pattern is by Cheri Payne and it’s called Sisters Love… and that pattern were just right to use and make for my lovely friends  Louise and Shirley. They are both the sisters I didn’t get! ??

Shirley had to have a pink quilt and blue was an easy choice for Louise…?? Cheri’s patterns are fun, happy and gives you room for your own ideas to bloom. I like that… ? to stretch your creativity a bit.
Photos are taken in The Old Church town here in Öjebyn…a very lovely place…of course I did chose to take photos on one of the coldest days…? and somehow photos taken with my camera vanished up in cyber space..so I’m happy I took photos with my iPhone …phew… was in a hurry sending the quilts away…so they were on its way when I saw that there were no photos… ? 

Details from Shirley’s quilt… cute girly blocks with our names stitched and improve pieced hearts…I did use my own hearts and not from Cheri’s pattern…

 Love the spring flowers added… yay…spring is coming…I really love details like this…?

Did a free form baptist fan quilting…and I must say it’s a favourite of mine…really love the look, both modern and traditional…

And even better is that it’s a fun and easy quilting to make… really fun! Do try! 

And a label of course… will be more of them in the future! Can’t get enough of them. 

That was some pink love are you ready for the blue one!

Stitchery adds such a lovely detail to a quilt…and makes it so personal … ?

And a slightly different label..added French knots to this one…

More improve scrappy hearts … love these so much… so have made another quilt using these and will try to get it on paper and make a pattern… ?

Love adding little bits of unexpected pieces of fabrics ..like the pink fabric strip in the blue border…and the binding…

Happy for amazing  friends so that I get the opportunity to sew lovely quilts… makes my heart happy! Have missed sewing for friends and making gifts so this was pure joy from start to finish!

Thanks for being my friends Shirley and Louise… ??

    I’m loving these quilts! All the charming elements make them very special. Must try the scrappy improv hearts and when feeling brave, the baptist fan quilting. Lovely work, Stina.

    I can’t believe that you made me this beautiful quilt. I love it so much! The photos are sooo nice of our quilts. I am so happy you rang my doorbell that evening years ago…. little did we know what a wonderful friendship that first meeting would lead to. ?

    Hmmmm which shall I comment on first? Maybe the wonderful fabric choices..perfect, perfect. LOve the pink, love the blue. Perhaps the baptist fan quilting? What a nice texture against the piecing. I think, however, I love the embroidered personal notes to your sisters the best; The evidence of the heart in the art. (But it was a very difficult decision. ?) Well done, you! Toni

  11. Beautiful sweet quilts for your lucky friends! I love everything about these cute quilts!

  12. These quilts are beautiful Stina — and SO YOU! Classic Stina! I LOVE everything about them and the fan quilting is perfect!

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