I'm hooked!

I got to deliver two of the charity quilts I've been quilting and binding at the meeting for our local quilt guild at Wednesday. Yay! Two more :o)
When I got home, I started prepping one more (I have several more laying in a bin), and I started the quilting last night. I like the pattern I used for the other two, so I ended up using it again :o)

It's not the most difficult pattern to quilt, and it looks nice on the scrappy ones.

The owners of our local quilt shops are members to our local quilt guild too, and they bring some fabrics and other stuff to the meetings, for us to buy :o)
I could not resist to buy some fabrics and thread, and these went home with me:

Beautiful fabrics, and so beautiful threads! Gail Pan told us about this hand dyed thread when she and Leanne where teaching at Quiltegården in Septhember, and finally it's here!
There are several color combinations, and they are just lovely!!! Gail Pan is using them, so pop over at her place, and you can see some of her projects with these threads.
I'm heading down at Quiltegården soon again, to buy some more of them!
I used one in this stitchery Gail gave us, it will be a needle case pretty soon :o)

Happy sewing,
Laila

Nydelige stoff du har kjøpt og tråden ser jo utrolig spennende ut. Det nest nederste stoffet er jo bare helt utrolig lekkert da. Det er bra at det er årsmøte i Quilteforbundet. Denne gangen er det i Stokke i Vestfold så det blir nok en tur dit. Teppet i det forrige innlegget ble bare helt nydelig. Du får gjort utrolig mye synes jeg. Her er det litt stille for tiden. Ha en fin helg. Mona

Quiltingen er jo bare såååå lekker. Hvordan i all verden får du det til så pent ? Nydelige stoffer - litt hektet på skrift du også :o))
Det litte sticheryet er virkelig søtt og nydelig.

Beautiful new fabrics, threads and stitchery. The colours are soft and sooo yummy;) Is the thread like stranded cotton thread? Have a nice quilting weekend!

I like your quilting a lot, I think it is a beautiful pattern. And I think I wouldn´t resist if somebody offered me the nice fabrics and thread you bought, either.

Så nydelig den lille fuglen ble i ditt valg av garn. Jeg hermet helt etter Gail.Og det ble min aller første OPAM i slutten av januar. Bestillte 5 farger fra Australia for en stund siden. Fint at Quiltegården har fått det inn. Happy Quilting.
