La Passion - 16 500 hexagons

Etter ønske viser jeg her ett av de ferdige hjørnene. Og nå er snart de siste to ferdig også. Noen få ganger til får dere se dette arbeidet før jeg starter på quiltingen. Mønsteret er av Grit Kovacs, og du finner det her.

I was asked to show one corner, and here it is. And soon the two last corners are finished too. A few times you will see this project again before I start hand quilting. Pattern from Grit Kovacs, and you can find it here.

Fredagens nåleputer og vårtegn

Har sydd en ny nålepute og tatt den med ut til vårtegn i nabolaget. En liten bie på nåleputen lager god honning. Har også fått den mest fantastiske nåleputen i en porselenskopp fra Janne i Beas nåleputeswap. Tusen takk Janne!

I made a new pincushion and took it out to find more signs of spring. A little bee is making good honey. I also got a fantastic pincushion in a cup from Janne in Bea's pincushionswap.

Litt sent, men her kommer blokkene jeg har sydd de siste dagene. Rutigt har den 15. hver måned liste over flere som syr restetepper.

I made some new blocks the last days, and joined them to bigger blocks. Find more scrap quilts on Rutigt's blog today.

La Passion - 16 400 hexagons

Hjørnene tetter seg litt etter litt. Det nærmeste jeg har vært å fullføre dette arbeidet.

The corners are taking form, and I'm the closest I've ever been to finish this top.

Nålepute med mappe

Det har vært blogghopp hos Carol denne uka, og jeg har fått masse ny inspirasjon til små prosjekter jeg kan sy. Om du ikke enda har vært der, så hopp over til Carol og gå gjennom lista. Jeg fant denne mappen hos Joan, og måtte selvsagt prøve den med en gang. Sydde også en matchende nålepute som passet inni den ene delen.

It's been a great blog hop hosted by Carol this week, with lots of inspiration for small projects. If you didn't see all, just jump over to Carol and find the list of participants. I found this little bag on Joan's blog, and had to sew it right away. I even made a matching pincushion to fit into it.

Island Batik gave me the fabrics used in this project.

Endelig var den her

Jeg har ventet lenge på pakken min fra Island Batik, men nå er den endelig her. Se på bildene og nyt de flotte stoffene. Om du følger med på bloggen min vil du etterhvert få se hva jeg syr av alt dette. I tillegg til stoffene jeg fikk som Island Batik Ambassador, var der også produkter fra samarbeidspartene Aurifil Thread og Hobbs.

I had to wait weeks for my Island Batik box. But now it's here, and you can see all, upps, nearly all, of what was inside. If you follow my blog, you'll see what I make out of these fantastic batiks this spring. As an Island Batik Ambassador I'm given all these beautiful fabrics from Island Batik, but also products from the partners Aurifil Thread and Hobbs.

It was a big box, so well worth waiting for.

A bundle of Pumpkin Patch fabrics. Here you can see most of these fabrics in use.

The foundation bundle has got bright and fun colours.

Blue Moon with coordinating light and dark fabrics.

Fabrics for Valentines, but I got the box too late, and will use them for other projects.
Neutral fabrics are always useful. You can see more here.

Stash builder rolls with 5" strips. Perfect for use in different projects.

These fabrics are just fantastic, but you have to wait until May to see them. Sorry.

Beautiful batik rayon for clothes.

A rayon scarf, perfect colours for me.

6 spools with Aurifil Thread, a cone and a fantastic guide showing what thread to use for different purposes.

Hobbs guide for batting. I should have had this one years ago. I've already found out what batting to use in my La Passion.

Thermore from Hobbs, for all types of quilts.

Hobbs Heirloom cotton batting for a twin size quilt.

La Passion - 16 300 hexagons

Dette tar visst aldri slutt. Selv med bare noen små hull å tette vet jeg at det likevel er flere hundre sekskanter. Men her er det bare å stå på.

This is a never ending project. Some small holes, but still several hundred hexies to go. But I keep on working every day.

Elementz Blog Hop + giveaway

Tammy Silvers is a fabric designer and made this line for Island Batik. She has made the most beautiful batiks in bright colours, real eye candy. So if you, as I did before, think batiks are just pastels, you have to read on. 

Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter at Island Batik or Tamarinis for a chance to win a Fat Eight Bundle of Elementz! You'll also find my giveaway at the end of this post.

Today is my day, but this blog hop started on Feb 26, so be sure to check out each stop on the hop to find more ideas on using these fabrics. There are also more giveaways on many of the blogs.

First I made this 11"x24" sandwich and chose a monkey wreath window on the front. The edges are rounded a bit, I quilted it and put on a binding.

I used Aurifil thread for the quilting, it went like a dream.

The zipper is fastened with quilting on the binding.

The front

and the back. Here I  can embroider a name if I like.

I like to have a chance to hang it up.

It's deep so I can have my things standing inside.

I'm so happy with this bag.

Here is what I made earlier with this fabric line.
