Tell me I’m late posting …because that is exactly what I do….? better late than never! 

I made this quilt for Marica in February… using a quilt pattern called  Nested Churndash…made by Jane Davidson.

Wanted to make this block for myself and bought the pattern a long time ago… still time though…?…now it seemed to be a nice little quilt to give away …and I so enjoyed making it! 

Love the fabrics and colours in this one…low volumes, pinks, greys and …blacks…☺️ I know I have said no blacks in my quilts..but I’m taking it all back..it’s beautiful ☺️❤️☺️

A tiny tiny churndash start…

More rounds added…


Would look fantastic for a whole quilt! 

 

I like the straight line quilting..it’s graphic… and requires little thinking… suited me fine at the moment ?


Lots of favourite fabrics in this one…?


Happy I managed to make this gift at one of my more hectic and chaotic months… I might start to believe that you are stronger than you think you are! ? ( at least when looking back and some time have passed ) ?

November…
Not my favourite month
It's getting colder and darker…and to top that …snow…
A little is just fine to keep it lighter… But not a metre of snow please…
 
Do try to find beauty in nature at my walks with Molly and am happy to find it…
This is my thinking spot…
First ice and snow…
It's something special about sunsets… :)
 
On the sewing front it have been full focus on the Scandibee blocks…
 
This month it was my friend Maricas turn to be Queen Bee…
and she chose a lovely block made from a tutorial by Clover & Violet…
 
Loved that she have used low volumes with black and grey stars…
think this quilt will be fantastic!
 
Yesterday I finished the pincushion that is a part of the
Secret Christmas Swap in Scandibee this year
But more on that later… :)

Some of us hadn’t slept at all 😉 and worked on the quilt at home…
Christina with her fantastic quilt…
A quick “fika” and then we were on track again…sewing…sewing…and having so much fun!!
Anna-Greta working on her quilt in pink and blues…
And here is Vega with her fun variation…
And Maria working on another variation
The technique was creative, just set your mind free and try
fun different settings, there is always another way to see something…
and the quilts DID change during these two days…
from one shape to another, adding something else…because the quilt needed just that.
Really FUN!
Louise in her creative chaos making letters…
Krista demonstrating mitered corners on my quilt …
Fika time and some thankyou gifts from us to Krista…
We gave her a bracelet that is very common from around here,
but with a modern twist, a triple, braided pewter bracelet in lamb skin with a reindeer horn button.
The Sami people have made pewter wire bracelets for hundreds of years in the Sami culture.
Think it was the Sami that invented the spun pewter wire.
And she also got a tea towel from a local designer… :)
The last hours in class created a light frenzy among us…
SEW SEW SEW…
Some came as far as to quilting the quilt…
and some like me still fiddling with nothing and everything… :)
Got some mitered corners done anyway… 😉
Love the look when the improved strips meet in the corner.
And then all of a sudden it was time to end and to show what we had done…
Christina’s quilt layerd for quilting…do wonder what they discussed?
Paparazzi photo shoot of our work… 😉

Christina had to leave early so that’s why her quilt ain’t on the wall of fame! 😉
Ahhhh… I think we did good…didn’t we girls!!
And THANKYOU Krista
For the best class ever!
The last night at the cabin went too fast …
and all of a sudden it was morning and time to say goodbye…
Did remember to take a photo of my gorgeous gift from Krista
The “Stepping Stones Table Runner”
Love it!!
Girls!!!
Thankyou Marica, Louise and Krista for making this little mini holiday in the
cabin the best… filled with lots of laughter and happiness!
And again Krista
Thankyou for coming to my part of the world,
teaching us how to IMPROVE (pronounce: impråvve) 😉 our quilts
It’s been such a pleasure!
Btw…Krista do you still know how to pronounce
-SNYGG… 😉
Bye bye …see you !!!
