Mini Love with Island Batik

As Island Batik Ambassadors we're given fabric to make beautiful things throughout the year. February's theme is Mini Love, and I made some small things to show you that you can use even the smallest scraps. These fabrics are so beautiful that I have to use up every inch of it.

Som ambassadør for Island Batik får jeg de nydeligste stoffer å prøve ut. Temaet i februar er Mini Love. Jeg har sydd noen små produkter for å vise at man kan bruke hver minste lille flis av disse vakre stoffene.

Scrap Happy Day i februar

Som vanlig blir det små restebiter den 15. i måneden. Se på bloggen til Rutigt, hun holder på med en fantastisk scrap quilt med de aller minste delene. Der er også linker til andre som syr med småbiter.

Jeg har nå startet med å spleise fire og fire sammen til større enheter, og fikk også sydd sju nye blokker i dag,

Scraps as usual the 15th. Look at Rutigt, she's making the cutest quilt from the smallest scraps. You'll also find links to other blogs with scrap projects.

I have started to join four and four blocks together, and also made seven new blocks.

Happy Galentine's Day!



In Norway we are getting more familiar with Valentine's Day. But I don't know if you know something about Galentine's Day. Actually it is the day before Valentine's, and it's celebrating lady friendship. I made a card for all my sewing friends. And as a present to you, I'll give you a tutorial on how to make it.



As  Island Batik Ambassadors we are given fabric to make something for this day, and for months to come. My box for this year hasn't arrived yet, but I had some small pieces left from earlier projects. So I made this beautiful card. So happy to use all the different seams on my sewing machine.

A nice project to use all my tiniest scraps. Sewn on a foundation.

I made me a paper template to cut the heart


I I sewed the heart to a background and batting
Aurifil Thread is great to use in all seams here
Sewed the binding to the front, turned around and glued it to the back
Glued a card on the back side, and sewed two rounds on the edge
The finished card. Happy Galentine's!

Here you can see what the other Island Batik Ambassadors made for Galentines Day. And stay tuned for more eye candy the next weeks.

La Passion - 16 000 hexagons

Puslespillet tetter seg, og nå er det noen små blomster og en del svarte sekskanter som mangler.

The jigsaw puzzle is almost finished. Some small flowers and black hexies are needed to fill in the last two corners.

Bold and brave challenge 9 - 3

Number 3 of the challenges from Persimon Dreams' Project Quilting was "bold and brave". I'm not at home, and without my sewing machine I really had to be brave to start a project for this challenge. I had brought with me beautiful small scraps of batik fabrics from Island Batik. So my brain was spinning around, and I started to think of hexagon shapes (strange huh?). I cut them out from old magazines, and started a little star. I appliqued it to a background, and hand stitched around. And it ended up as a sweet little pincushion, 2 1/2" square.

Tredje utfordring i Prosjekt Quilting fra Persimon Dreams hadde tema "bold and brave". Ettersom jeg ikke var hjemme ved symaskinen min, måtte jeg være litt modig for å starte noe med bare bittesmå rester av batikkstoffer fra Island Batik. Jeg klippet ut sekskanter fra gamle blader, og fikk nok stoff til en liten stjerne som jeg applikerte til en bakgrunn og quiltet rundt. Og så ble det en bitte liten nålepute da. Fra senere i kveld og de neste dagene går det an å stemme på mitt bidrag (nummer 68) ved å klikke linken her.

La Passion - 15900 hexagons

På tur, og må bare sy deler til å feste på teppet senere. Dette er den siste diamanten, og den skal inn i teppet her du ser en åpning.

Traveling, and I had to sew my next hundred like this. It's the last diamond, and you can see where it's going.
