On thursday my quilt group had their monthly quilt meeting.  This time we had invited Siw from QuiltegĂĽrden to join us with her shop.  She came directly from Houston and had a lot of news to tell us from the quilt market

She had a car filled to the brim with temptations and inspiration.

Report from the cabin and the sewingroom

 

Time flies so fast and with no internet at home I have not blogged for several weeks.

Last thursday I and three other friends went for a long weekend at my friends cabin.  Sewing from early morning to early morning.  Just a little bit sleep in between.  I have for a long time wanted to sew something from Lori Holts book “Farm girl vintage”, and now that halloween is next weekend I desided to sew some pumpkins.

We had beautiful weahter all weekend.  And we did not sit indoors by the sewing machines all day long.  We also went for a long walk one of the days.

After our walk we had new energy to continue our sewing.

And I discovered why my sewing machine had such strange noice LOL.  Time to do some cleaning.

P1090818

So fun to make these pumpkins.  I love them.

P1090826

Got all pumpkins basted and quilted too.  Decided to make potholders.

P1090824

Since I bought Jen Kingwells book “Quilt Lovely” I have wanted to sew one of her pillows.  So fun to make these small blocks.

All these projects was started last weekend.  I finished two of the “What’s in your bag”.  Three pairs of potholders got their binding on.  And I sewed this Jen Kingwell pillow.

We did not sit in front of the sewing machines all the time.  I always bring some handsewing with me to do when we relaxes in the sofa.

Got the binding sewed down on my potholders this week.  Now ready for Halloween.

And my handquilting project is finished.  Doing a couple of threads each day really makes a progress, and suddenly the quilt is finished.  This is my “Aunt Sarahs quilt”.  Pattern from an old Quiltmania magazine.  I am so happy with this quilt. A lot of handquilting, but it was worth it. I got the look I wanted.

And of course I have started another daily threads of handquilting project.
