Restelapper og litt håndsøm

Har tatt en liten pause fra det store sekskantprosjektet mitt, men jeg må likevel sy noen sekskanter hver dag. Det blir lettere å ta det fram igjen når jeg har ferdige sekskanter som kan gå rett inn i teppet.




















Holder på å montere det jeg har sydd i dag av rester. Kan ikke vise hva det er akkurat nå. Det får dere venter med til litt senere.























Today I've basted some hexies for my La Passion. Took a little break from that project, but it's nice to have some hexies ready when I find it again, hopefully in some days.

Then I found some scraps, and made something a bit secret. I'll show you in a while, but you can see that it's bright and happy.

En Provence - part 1

Hvert år arrangerer Bonnie Hunter sitt quiltemysterium, der vi får mønster til nye deler av en quilt hver uke gjennom hele desember. Første del ble lagt ut sist fredag, og heter En Provence. Fordi jeg elsker Frankrike og alt som er fransk, har jeg bestemt meg for å bli med. Har vært med flere ganger før, og det er skikkelig gøy. Om du vil være med, så finner du mønsteret her.

Every year Bonnie Hunter gives us a mystery quilt on her blog. First clue was released last Friday, and is called En Provence. I love France and all things French, and had to jump in. If you like to do the same, you can find the pattern here.


Quiltville's Quips & Snips


De første blokkene skal være 4-patch-blokker. Hele 221 stykker skal vi sy. Så langt er jeg ikke kommet, men en god bunke har det blitt. Her ser du de nøytrale fargene jeg har valgt.



My neutrals.

































Det perfekte stoffet?
The perfect fabric?






Fikk til 4-patch med spinn.

I made it, 4-patches with spin.

Mini La Passion

Den siste uka har jeg knapt nok fått tid til å ta i min store La Passion. Derfor tenkte jeg at jeg likegodt kunne sy noen sekskanter på denne lille, når jeg likevel er på etterskudd. Mønster av Grit Kovacs.

Last week I haven't touched my green La Passion. So I could rather find my mini, to try to get the inspiration I need. The hexies are 1/4", so this isn't going too fast. Pattern from Grit Kovacs.

La Passion - 10 200 hexagons

For at jeg skal nå 11 000 sekskanter før nyttår, så må jeg bare stå på. Cupfinale og sying gikk godt i lag, og dermed passerte jeg nytt hundre.

To pass 11 000 hexies before this year is over, I have to hurry up. Football on TV and sewing is a great combination, and I could easily pass the next hundred.

Fellesteppe

Volda og Ørsta Quiltelag har dette året sydd på et felles teppe. Endelig er det helt ferdig med både quilting, lukkekant og broderi av antenner på sommerfuglene. Dette teppet vil vi gi i presang til en institusjon i nærmiljøet, og håper det kan spre glede. Mønsteret har vi fått hos Lea Anne på bloggen Podunk Pretties. Hun lager mange flotte mønster, så besøk gjerne sidene hennes.

This is a quilt my quilt guild has done together. The pattern is from Lea Anne at Podunk Pretties. A big thank you to Lea Anne for giving us the permission to do this quilt to give away to a local institution. 






































The quilting is done by Sølvi Mikkelsen.

Scrap Happy Day i november

Fortsetter å samle på ferdigsydde scrapblokker. Rutigt har en dag midt i måneden som inspirerer meg til å sy flere slike blokker. Over nyttår engang skal disse bli til en hel quilt.

I keep on collecting scrap blocks. Today I made six of them in Rutigt's challenge. Next year these blocks will go into a quilt.





I wonder what the ladies are talking about behind the curtain.

La Passion - 10 100 hexagons

Det er tre uker siden jeg passerte 10 000 sekskanter, så nå var det på tide å få på et nytt hundre. I dag var det fint og lyst ute, men ikke tørt nok i gresset for å brette utover quilten. Den begynner etterhvert å bli for stor for stuegolvet, og dessuten er det litt for mørkt inne på denne årstiden.

Three weeks since I passed 10 000 hexies, and at last I had the time to sew another hundred. So nice and sunny outside today, but the grass was wet, and I couldn't place the whole quilt out to show you. It's almost too big for my floor, and so dark inside on this time of the year.

Online Trunk Show 2016

My blogger friend Soma with the blog Whims and Fancies hosted last year a great online trunk show, and now it's time for a new show. Please click at the picture and jump to her blog to look at all the beautiful quilts linked up.

Online Quilt Trunk Show | Whims And Fancies



This year I'll show you some of my new and old quilts. I've made many bed sized quilts throughout the years, and here are some of my favorites.



This quilt is made after an idea of Lise Bergene, a Norwegian quilter. All blocks are made and quilted one by one, and then put together to a quilt.
















This quilt is hand sewn and hand quilted. Made from half hexagons and hexagons.
















I love scrap quilts, and in this quilt I used many of my bright scraps.














I like to reuse denim, and this year I finished this denim quilt. You can find a tutorial here, if you like to make one yourself.















This is my latest finish, and you can read more about this quilt and see more photoes here.














I love to make pincushions. This one I made for Grit, who made the pattern for La Passion.

I found the pattern for this pincushion on this blog.











This pincushion I made for
Bea's pincushion swap.















My last picture this time is of a tablecloth with just the right colours for the season.











Hope you enjoyed this show. Please find the rest of the show at Soma's blog.

Gryteklut

Litt gjenbruk er bra. I kveld fikk jeg endelig tid til å sette meg ved symaskinen og sy en ny gryteklut i denim. Pyntet opp med en liten og søt ugle.

Redesign is a good way of using up some denim scraps. Today I made a hotpad and put a sweet little owl in the corner.
