Last year I had the pleasure to meet Sue Daley in person, I guess you all know that I love her designs and that I am working on several of them. Now she is visiting Norway again and yesterday we met again.
This time she had brought her dautgher on this journey to Norway. Being blogging friends for several years it is so fun to meet her in person. I dream about visiting Austalia some day.
First some photos from the shopping area. Kathrines Quiltestue had so many temptations for us all.
Busy cutting fabric……………for me……..
oh yes I got tempted………….can tell you that as the evening went on, more and more was filled in this paperbag (mine is the one to the right)
Finally Sue started her trunkshow. She had so many beautiful quilts to show. Just enjoy the photos. It is one thing to see the quilts in her book or on her patterns, seeing them for real is another thing. I have just picked a selection of my favorite quilts to show you here now.
And this is absolutely my favorite.
I LOVE this basket quilt and guess who is starting to sew this.
I guess you are curious of what was in my paper bag………….LOL
of course I could not resist to buy something with all these temptataions
Sue is recomending this scissor and tracing pencil, so now I am looking forward to try them. And I have a plan for these fabrics.
Kathrine is so good putting these fabric packages together. 40 lovely Fat eights.
Of course I had to buy the pattern for my favorite quilt Baskets For You. And when I saw the Duke Road quilt I just had to buy the pattern for that one too. Now I have two more of Sue’s quilts to sew. I am already sewing on Antique Sampler and It Takes two (not to mention all the other patterns that I have not started on yet). And what about the applecore quilt I started last weekend LOL
But I love her patterns and can’t resist buying them. The pattern packages comes with paperpieces and cutting templates. And with the glue pen, correct needles and thread, english paper piecing have become so fun and easy.
Saying for today:
