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… 💖💙

But first… Hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas!! 💗

I had a lovely time..not the way we had planned it to be…a walk down memory lane celebrating Christmas in Grannies house with all of the clan… didn’t happen…a stomach flu stopped that…so next Christmas we will try again…☺️ this Christmas was spent at my daughters new house and with my children. 💗❤️️💗

This year have just passed, can’t figure out how, and am realising it’s soon 2017… and I long for that. Can’t wait for 2016 to end, it have had it moments and I see the light…so I’m welcoming a new year! ☺️

Talking about years… Scandibee year…💗 my second year with this fantastic group of lovely quilters has come to an end and I have not posted pictures of all the lovely blocks made within this group.

The most amazing mail arrived this late summer…
From Pleasant Home… (Blog) Owner Jodi Nelson…(Instagram)
Pink magnetic 4″ Pin Bowl
 
Have been eyeing these magnetic Pin Bowls out for a long time
and now they actually stood on my doorstep…
Fast delivered and so well packed…
 
And when packing up it was a lot of oooh…. And ahhhh… :) :)
See for yourselves …
 
Isn't they gorgeous…
Had such a hard time choosing what colour,
because they come in a LOT of gorgeous colours …
Managed to narrow it down to a pink, grey and ocean blue colour scheme…
and I'm so pleased of how they look…
Jodi paints these and are now shipping all over the world…
and they are becoming quite popular…
have missed out on them several times.
 
And they work super duper…
Got my working space a little bit more organised…
and that is fantastic for a girl like me who always mislay all my stuff!!
 
Can't tell you how happy I am for these!!
Well done Jodi for such a great job on your clever little helpers!!
 
If you want some Ruler Pals for yourself…go here
And the Pin Bowls just recently got a new website
