Never thought I would have this quilt finished so soon after receiving my blocks this January
from my new found friends in our Scandibee!!

Must have been inspired …and who wouldn’t when getting such lovely blocks!!!

Will in my next post give a little tutorial or how to make this quilt…

It’s an easy one…and I think it turned out pretty good!! :)

So prepare your self for loooots of photos…

because I LOVE THIS QUILT!! :)

The quilt followed me on my walk with Molly one sunny morning… Probably one of the last days this spring/winter you could walk on the hard snow crust without going through.
Love the binding…not black …not coloured but just with the perfect movement and colour…
Hung on a branch in the forest
Love all the different prints and the low volume gorgeousness … :)
Oops…. Don’t know how many times I hung this quilt on the bent down tree I found!
More cute prints from the other side…
And I think I found just the perfect backing for this one…
Birds and new leaves…as it should be on a happy spring quilt!
Backing…from IKEA:)
Out on the ice…open water in the middle of the river…with swans…
An old lopsided wooden bridge…
Molly doing a little peek a boo and starts to wonder when are you finished!!!
Yes..I love the binding!!!
Do you see the swans:)
They were trumpeting the whole time…and I do love the sound of it…
then I know it is SPRING!!!
This quilt was quilted with Aurifil thread 28/2 and in straight lines… Did use a larger top stitch needle 100/16 because of all the seams…and the thicker thread…it worked beautifully!
And no I didn’t mark anything…just sewed and let it happen the way it did…
I want to thank all my SCANDIBEE friends for their wonderful blocks
Without you all..this quilt never would have been this lovely!!
So thankyou
Annika, Ruth, Bella, Sigrun, Hanne, Anne, Nina M, Nina C, Marica, Synnøve and Lizzie!!!
Much love to you ALL!!! :)

HI…. Remember me… hope so…
 
Life is still up and down…many things to consider…most important my own health…
Lots of things happening around me…and I do have problem with dealing with stress… Some things have been better and some things not…so life is still under construction… 😉
 
But at least I am sewing…wohoo…
 
So lots of things have happened since last time I was on the blog…
First Scandibee
 
January was my month to decide blocks for the group to sew for me…
So I was Queen Bee
 
I decided on a very easy block…just strips sewn together ….
One coloured block (the makers favourite colour)
and one low volume block was what I wanted to be sewn for me…

My blocks top right next Annika's, Sigrun's, Hanne's, Lizzie's and Ruth's...

 
And oh so much happiness when all the blocks started to drop in my mailbox…
Wow and wow…lots and lots … And Ohhhhh and Ahhhh ….
Smiling from ear to ear…
Do I love my blocks …
or DO I LOVE MY BLOCKS….
LOVE
of course…

Blocks from Anne, Marica, Nina C, Synnøve, Nina M and Belinda...

 
Now to sew them together… And that will be VERY fun…indeed!!!
Here they are all of them…
And now you might get a hint on what I will do with them… 😉
 
 
During my absence in the blog world…
I have also decluttered my sewing space…so now I can breath in here…
feels so much better…
Still not quite finished..have fabrics to sort and pile up in my cupboard…
will show when I'm ready!!
 
See you all…
And big hugs for still hanging around this blog!! :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
 
Well I don't know where December went …
all I know is that we now have a new and fresh year to make the most of!!
So Happy 2015!!
 
Have let this blog fall into the forgotten land and I hope I can manage myself to post more regular here…do not want to let go of it… But I have to say I love instagram… And that's where I am!!
 
So …what's up then…
The secret Christmas Scandibee Mug Rug Swap
Scandibee…what's that… Well you can read all about that here…
 
My secret partner was Nina With Freckles in Finland…
When finding out that she was the one I was to send to I knew what to make…
Water …and tranquility …. a moment in life just to be here and now…
 
So this is what I made…
 
I try to be more mindful… Light a candle…and just be in the moment…
I do need that …
To release stress in my life…hope I got that feeling with this one…
 
And of course the mug rug have a backside too…
I thought that a meadow would be a lovely place to be at as well..
I know I love that…
 
And Blue and Green
Gorgeous colours …
 
It was a very fun swap…
 
And what did I get…
Well the most wonderful mug rug from Norway…
 
From Synnøve
Do I love it???
 
YES… TO BITS!
 
It is gorgeous…and suits me perfectly…
Do you see the crocheted edge… Love it!!!
Thanks Synnøve!!
 
This have been a very fun swap…
And now we are in to the Scandibee year…
And I am queen Bee for January
and my instructions are sent out to the members..
And now I'm waiting…and waiting for my blocks to arrive…
But that will have to be in another post…
 
So see you soon!!
