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… 😉

Marica, Louise and Gunillas quilts
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 !!!
