I tackled the next block for Scandibee…the August block for Mariana in Spain (@cosertejercrear) … and I had been such a good girl and prepped these before I left  home… :) …guess what…well did I cut the right sizes? … NOPE… of course I didn’t… so we tried to see if Louise had the same fabrics… but not…so I did what I (and Louise) does when running out on something…we piece it!

I don’t mind at all I think it adds to a quilt..but not everyone likes it…so I’m not sure Mariana does…if not I will sew another block for her… What do you do? Rip it up and sew totally new fabrics to the block? Or like us? Maybe something else…share please. 


Do you see where it is pieced? If I hadn’t told you…would you have noticed? ­čśë

Nice to have caught up on the Scandibee blocks… Septembers block instructions are coming any day now… :)

Enjoyed seeing some of Louise’s new made quilts…

Love this colour combination… ­čĺŚ  This is a quilt made from joining in on a sew-a-long on Instagram and on @fixer_of_old_quilts feed.  Love Louise’s happy colour choices.

And finally I got to see the quilt Louise did in the class we had with Krista Hennebury here two years ago… which reminds me that I haven’t finished mine… it will come :)

Isnt this clever… sewing her initials into the border of the quilt… 
This quilt is a happy splash of colours!! Makes me jump with joy! Happy happy happy :) 

Next quilt is her latest quilt made from Bonnie Hunters mystery quilts… she has done quite a few of them…how many I don’t know…Louise you have to share how many you have made  :)  This quilt is called En Provence… 

See if you can see the pieced fabric here… 

You can imagine the lavender fields don’t you … it’s a beauty…

This is a dose of what I got at Louise’s … love the menu.. :) more of that!
Will show what I started when being with Louise in my next post… see you

to finally get my acts together and drive down to ├ľstersund and visit Louise… all I can say is that I didn’t remember how far it was… ­čśë phew… it took me 9 hours… 

Have feared driving because of my headaches… now it was time to test myself and just do it! And I did it!! Yay to me! 

Beautiful art by @parscaeli

Of course I got tense and got headaches but that was minor to my happiness of being with my beautiful friend Louise…

Had a lot to catch up on… sharing this and that under some quilts in her lovely garden watching her husband and son build on their new patio… 


Found some quilts that I have made at the house… that’s happiness…


Love her warm cosy friendly home filled with lovely quilts everywhere… this one brought lovely memories from a trip we made to Trondheim and took a class with Gail Pan and Leanne Beasley… how fun wasn’t that! Isn’t it gorgeous!


A work in progress… some Splendid Sampler blocks added with added blocks of her own ..and it’s a pink burst of joy!


Ain’t this one just it… a typical Louise quilt in her pinks and blues with a splash of yellow!


We also managed some sewing the first days… in between catching up, rest and the busy life in the Short family with visitors, visiting and sleeping over grand children and Louise’s care of her parents… this family does everything with the heart and fills me with such peace and love

July Scandibee blocks made by both me and Louise for May Kristin in Norway (@krispquilt) ….Lots of Flying Geese in a lovely colour way in greys and aqua.

Thanks for being all this to me Louise…

More to come in another blogpost … see you!

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 ├ľjebyn…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… ??
