in the yellow room…
from my exhibition in Skellefteå this summer….
This is a quilt made from one of the most fun challenges I have  had…
The Shirt project!!!
We had read about some ladies doing this In Australia some years ago..
could they so could we..:o))
We collected ten shirts each… and since we were five ( Marica, Cici, Kristina, Lotta and me)  it became 50 shirts!!!
We divided these equal among us…
and decided on the rules…
All 50 shirts had to be used in the quilt we made…
Just one fabric could be added…
And this is what I made…
( Oh you should see the other girls too.. they are wonderful)
“Fem Flickor ( Five Girls)”
Pattern by Cheri Saffiote Payne
And the quilt in the basket.. is a quilt I started with the leftovers from the shirts.. both on the back and front…
still not finished.. but will some day..:o))
And believe me.. I still have LOTS of scraps from those shirts…
(And you from Norway and Sweden might remember this since we have been in the local quilt magazines showing all the quilts..)
One time while visiting Louise in Östersund we started to sew one doll each..
and this is my version…
“Sarah Louise”
Sooo much fun we had that weekend!! :o)
And this quilt is another oldie….
Also a project shared with friends…
Louise in Östersund and Eugenie in Norway
We decided to sew stars to each other..
I sewed mine ( in my colors) and sent to Louise who sewed for me and sent to Eugenie…
who sewed for me and finally one day A large envelope was in my mailbox…
and then it was up to me to sew them together…
And of course I sewed stars for both Louise and Eugenie…
and they do have their quilts finished too..
Louise an America inspired quilt.. and Eugenies in pastels… :o)
This is how mine became
“My Stars”

And this is a quilt I gave my Brother and his wife Anna on their wedding day
Thanks for letting me borrow it …:o)))
“The wedding quilt”

And during the show I exchanged the quilts a little so I hung my
Everyday Angels in the same corners as my brothers quilt…
“Everyday Angels”
pattern by the Chookshed ( I think..:o)
And this is a quilt I made for my Mother…
she do always think we are too far away… so I decided to change that..
So I collected the handprints from my brothers families and from mine…
and made this quilt with just Kaffe Fasset fabrics…
“Mothers quilt”
So now she can have us all around her..:o))
The quilt below is the the oldest quilt I had in the show… a quilt that I made for my dads 60th birthday….ohh.. look at those fabrics.. :o))  talking about memory lanes… sweet memories.. and so is this quilt for dad too…
Some Pictures from his life transferred on fabric..
My christening… Dad just as a little boy…  Newborn sibling…
Mom and dad taking a rest in the haymaking… Early days working in the woods…
Castle Rushen at the Isle of Man… where Our relatives lived during the viking ages…
The beard he had when he came home from France.. and still have..lol..
early days  working with floating timber….
“My Fathers Quilt”
It doesnt show so much but I quilted a message for him on the quilt with runics all around the quilt… and well he says he have read it..:o))) Im not sure…. :o)
And finally  a quilt Viktor and I worked on together when he was about 5-6 years old…
He picked the fabrics… and wow he was so sure where to put them…
maybe he will be a quilter ..:o)))
Oh so much fun we had building all the trucks and cars…
Pattern from an Australian designer… think it was called Adams Garage…
“Viktors Garage”
And I totally forgot to take photos of the quilts that was in the basket..
but maybe someday… I will show them…
hmm.. because the one in blues and greens… are needing some help to be fixed!!
It is so worn!!! :o)
 Well I hope you have enjoyed all the quilts….
Have some pictures left from what I had for sale at the show…  and then it will be all back to normal again here in Kviltstina Land..:o)))
See you!!
have to get back working on my Schnibble!!!
