The secret is now out…😍 Early this summer I got contacted by the Norwegian quilt magazine “Quiltemagasinet” if I would like to contribute to the magazine…and it made me very happy.

After being “away” read not being able to create for a lot of years this meant a lot to me since it’s what I want to do… to make patterns, maybe a book (a dream of mine] and to share what I love…patchwork my way.

And this Happy happening took me by surprise… Of course I hadn’t something ready…isn’t it always so…so the thinking cap had to come on…quick! And my newly happy-in-life-being-a-mormor came in handy…another little quilt came to life…made for Stella…and in those colours I tried earlier…with grey and black.

I thought of X and O’s …in Swedish it is “Puss och Kram” and how many x and o’s doesn’t I give Stella when I see her…so that was my inspiration to this quilt.Lots of fun improvised x and o blocks with a bit of “stinafied” applique…💗I really like the fun and free way to sew these…Took photos in Church town …again… I just love these old buildings 💗I will make a pattern in English later, when the magazine isn’t selling this copy, probably around new year. Meanwhile the magazine can be bought either on Norwegian or Swedish…it’s number 4/2018 Quiltemagasinet What is it with baby feet… 💗

Stella circa 3 1/2 months at this picture, modelling on her new quilt…had real trouble keeping her eyes was soooooo light outside…😜

And a label from mormor to Stella…made June 2018…I really like having the label at the front! But to be sure … I have written on the back as well…😜

And it wasn’t all..they made a lovely presentation of me in the magazine too…I felt happy after I’d read it…it felt like I’m on the mend …and that is happiness.

Sorry it’s on Swedish…wish you all could be able to read it…💗

So..that was my secret…nothing more exciting than a quilt…but for me it was though…and a quilt isn’t that exciting enough 😜… see you lovelies.

    How exciting for you! I only wish I knew Swedish so I could read it, too. I’m 100% Swedish, fourth generation in the US and had an aunt who knew Swedish, but I never learned it. I wish now that I would have learned when I could have. Isn’t that always the way? Those quilts in the magazine look beautiful and I do hope I’ll get a chance to see those quilts. Will you show them on your blog? Your style is so much like mine. I just love your stuff! Keep up the good work, Stina! 💕
