And another cushion :-)

I have finished another cushion and this time it is for a dear friend of mine.
Design Lise/ Kreativ Quilt. Fabric are scraps from my merry merry snowmen project with French General. My friend asked me to take less red in her next cushion but I find that the red make the cushion glow. Don´t you agree. See picture under….

I have also made her the cushion in my next picture.You can find the pattern on Moda Bakeshop here.Theese 2 cushions will go very well together on her new sofa.

This is my minispool quilt made in Camille Roskelley´s class at Gardermoen a few months ago.Unfortunately it turned out very wonky so I will never finish this quilt but I intend to make another one safe home in my own sewing room. My iron might be a bit kinder to me and my quilts… To bad though !!

Have yourself a lovely weekend quilting. I will try to finish 10 yards of binding.

A new Quilt for my daughter Marit.

Playing with Indigo Crossing again and some few Lexington by Minnick &Simpsons. 
Designed by Lise at Kreativ Quilt in Kristiansand. She has the pattern for sale together with the cushion in my previous post. 
The Quilt has been beautifully quilted by Quilt'n in Arendal. 
Thank you so much ! 
My daughter is very happy with her new Quilt. I have one Quilt almost identical to this one and she has been using it every time she was visiting home. Ok I tok the hint at last :-)

Another Cushion for my daughter

Scrapping with my Indigo Crossing fabric again. I guess that you are pretty tired of me and those fabrics but I have a good time and that are the most important..
I made another cushion for my daughter Marit today. She told that the cushion I made her a while ago was a constant challenge for for her and her boyfriend, because both of them wanted to use it when relaxing. Ups problem solved :-)
Design Lise at Kreativ quilt shop in Kristiansand.

The backside of the cushion..

I enjoyed a really good cup of Caffe Mocca at " Lykke Interiør og Kafe´, Vågsbygd senter". I run into a good friend of mine, sweet Kari. We had a nice chat about life for a good hour.. Loved it !

My Mini Dwell Quilt

My Mini Dwell Quilt is finished. I was very lucky to join Camille Roskelley at her class at Norwegian Quilt Festival.
It was very special for me to meet Camille because I have admired her work / blogg for some time now.
She was so sweet and we all had a blast at her class.
I also made a Mini Spool Quilt but it has not been qualified for a show off, I think I have to make another one. It turned out very wonky !! Grmf :-)

I found a very sweet sign at " Gamle been i Fredrikstad". It says: "The ducks meet here". So sweet !!
I just had to show you…

I have been on vacation in Italy/ Bella Italy.. I went to Sorrento/ Napels / Amalfi and Pompeii.
I had such a good time with my friend Jorun. We had just 2 hours in Pompeii and that was way too short. I could easily spend a day or 2 here.
Today I will show some pictures from Pompeii:

Fatquartershops Mysteryquilt 2014 block # 3 and 4. Now waiting for block # 5 in the mail.

Selvlagede potetlefser fra Valle i Setesdalen. Nyderlig med smør,sukker og kanel. Hmm de lokale damene, som var våre lærermestere denne dagen, skjønte ikke så mye av det med kanelen da ..
Making traditional potato "tortillas" from Valle/ Setesdalen in Norway. Tasting lovely with butter, sugar and cinnamon between the layers.

How did we make them:

The pinwheel quilt / Moda Bakeshop

A new quilt has been finished, though it has been done for a while but I have not shared this with you.
I have found the pattern at Moda Bakeshop here.
The designer are Pauline Francis at Quiltnqueen.
Quiltekunst / Britta have quilted this quilt very beautifully. Love it !
It was a very fun project and I must say that I never get tired of finding patterns at Moda Bakeshop and the best part is that all the pattern are free at no cost :-).
Have anyone else made a Mode Bakeshop project lately? Please share ..

A new bag, 12 years old UFO :-)

It has taken me 12 years to finish this bag so you might say that it is an UFO. UFO= Unfinished Object, right ?
I have a good friend who is turning 60 years old this month, so the bag is a gift for her and the colors are just perfect for her style. I really hope she likes it !
The bag are designed by a danish designer : Bente Birk.

I am off today to a girl night out in the mountains. I am going to Nomeland Gård in Valle Setesdalen. You can find a link here and here.
The other girls left yesterday so I am a bit late for all the fun but I really hope to enjoy a lovely dinner tonight and to join " Lefsekurs" tomorrow.
No sewing this weekend but next weekend I will be joining in on Norwegian Quilt Festival at Gardermoen. You will find me there Thursday joining Sue Daley for the Marmalade quilt (English paper piecing) and Friday joining Camille Roskelley for one of her mini quilts. A lot of my quilting friends will be there and I am so looking forward to this event !
Busy times, yes it is !!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend !
