Sommerfugler m.m.

Utfordringen i RSC16 denne måneden har vært grønn. Jeg har ikke vært mye hjemme ved symaskinen, så det har ikke blitt så mange grønne blokker. Dessuten har jeg konsentrert meg om min grønne La Passion.







































The challenge in RSC16 this month is green. I've not been home with my sewing machine too much this month. I've concentrated on my La Passion. But I had the time to make a few blocks tonight.

Mini log cabin

Denne har jeg sydd for lenge siden, men ikke vist på bloggen her. Elsker log cabin, og jo mindre, jo bedre. Stripene er bare 1/4" ferdig sydd. Vil også vise en nydelig nålemappe jeg fikk av Silvia forrige helg, spesielt sydd for bruk sammen med La Passion.






























This little quilt I made long ago, but I've never showed it on this blog. I love log cabin, and tiny scraps. These stripes are only 1/4" when finished. I'll also show the beautiful needle case I got from Silvia last weeken, especially made to use when I work on my La Passion.

La Passion quiltetreff

Sist lørdag var 32 quiltere samlet til hyggelig treff rundt La Passion. Samlingen fant sted i en koselig liten kafé i Ebstorf i Tyskland. Her er noen av de teppene som ble vist denne dagen. Samme mønster, men med forskjellige farger.

Last Saturday we were 32 quilters together for a meeting around the beautiful La Passion. It took place in a cosy little café in Ebstorf in Germany. Here are some nice photoes showing some of the quilts shown. Same pattern, but our own colours.

Samling hos Grit

Sist fredag var quiltere som syr La Passion invitert til Grit til et koselig måltid og "vis og fortell". Vi var 18 stykker som møttes. De fleste av oss var helt nye for hverandre. Kjekt å få så mange nye og hyggelige venner. Her er noe av det flotte vi fikk se denne kvelden.

Last Friday 18 La Passion quilters were invited to Grit for a nice meal and "show and tell". We were 18 girls from three countries who met. Most of us were new to each other. Happy to get beautiful new friend. Here you can see some of the quilts shown this evening.

La Passion - 7900 hexagons

For en uke siden rundet jeg et nytt hundre. Nå er jeg på god vei mot 8000 sekskanter. Har hatt en spennende helg med mange andre som syr dette teppet. Mer om det i morgen.






















A week ago I passed another hundred. Now I'm on my way to 8000 hexies. I've had a wonderful weekend together with many other La Passion sewers. More about that tomorrow.

Fredagsnålepute

Denne liker jeg godt. Tror jeg må beholde denne selv. Her ser du nåleputen ute i alt som spirer og gror her akkurat nå.
















































































This one I really love. I might have to keep it myself. Here you can see it in the blooming and light green nature around just now.

La Passion - 7800 hexagons

Nytt hundre, og jeg nærmer meg 8000 med stormskritt. Det andre bildet viser hvordan arbeidet så ut for ett år og over 4000 sekskanter siden.





































A new hundred, and I'm rushing against 8000 hexies. The last picture shows La Passion a year and more than 4000 hexies ago.

Tulipanteppe

Quiltelaget mitt har i fellesskap i vinter/vår arbeidet med dette flotte tulipanteppet. Mønsteret har vi funnet hos Lea Anne på Podunk Pretties. Alle i laget har sydd både firkanter, tulipaner og sommerfugler. Nå er endelig teppet klart for quilting.

















So sweet. These two posies are holding hands. We found it too sweet to unpick.





























My quilt guild has made this beautiful Posy Quilt together this winter. The pattern is from Lea Anne at Podunk Pretties, and we all love it so much. Thank you Lea Anne. All of us did both squares, posies and butterflies. Now this top is sent away for quilting.

Dette er kosearbeid, og går sakte framover. Her er de neste tre blokkene fra boka til Tula Pink.






































This is going slowly, but I'm so in love with these blocks from Tula Pink's book.
