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… 💖💙

Scraps…

How about you…can you throw them away? I can NOT..not even the tiniest of scraps…so I’m saving them…for special projects…lol…

When I sewed on Annika’s Broken Star blocks there were a lot of corner cut offs. I sewed them together into half square triangles while sewing the block…that makes the work a little bit more fun…and it’s better to have them sewed together to a block rather than lying around somewhere…❤️


This time the scraps became the sweetest little pincushion… and it was the perfect gift to my lovely friend Louise…pink and black… colours she likes.


I actually made another one for me…in a different pattern…which reminds me to finish it! Wonder where I put that one?


Kind of cute isn’t it? ❤️


So don’t throw your scraps away!! ❤️️

Still smiling when remembering my days at the cabin with my friends…
How couldn’t I… Had such a lovely time …
Promised to show my gifts a little bit better … And here they are:
Krista had made a Double Scissor Keeper ( pattern by Amy Friend)
and in the book Make It Take it by Krista
And it was filled with some goodies…
Isn’t this a clever one… Double scissors!!
I so love the inside fabric…Krista didn’t know this, but I love strawberries…
strawberries and summer days at my grandmother’s house, happy days without no troubles…
And to go picking them on free land …yum!
Happy fond memories!
And I also got wonderful gifts from Louise…
The loveliest bracelet from Snö of Sweden… Have used it a lot since cabin…love it…
and then I got this fantastic bright fuchsia Christmas bauble
for my white Christmas tree!!!
She bought it at Liberty’s when in London last year ( was it so Louise?)
and now we finally got to meet so she could give it to me…
Can’t wait to put up my tree and hang it there!!
My second gift from Krista have come to great use right away…
the Stepping Stones Table Runner (also from Krista’s book) …
It’s on my kitchen table so it says hello to me every day!
It’s brilliant designed with the pattern going in a curved design,
so there are gorgeously quilted spaces where you can put candles
on without breaking up the pattern on the runner…
And yay…more strawberries!!
Totally missed out on this fabric line Briar Rose by Heather Ross
but now I have some of it… :)
Thanks a million for my thoughtful gifts!!
