The "Secret Quilt" is called Cottage Charm :o)

Today is the day I'm allowed to show you the secret project I have been working on the last month or so!!!! 
Siw, owner of Quiltegården, asked me to make this quilt, and of course I couldn't resist saying "yes" :o) I started in the middle of December, and it was so exciting to see the quilt growing.


A lot of sewing on the machine, and appliquè by hand, it turned into this:


Then it had to take a trip to Merete, she was going to quilt it on her longarm quilting machine. She gave me a couple of sneak peeks along the way, and it looked gorgeous!


She turned it into this:

Awesome, right? She did such an amazing job, and you can see some more close up photo's over at Merete's blog :o)
The quilt is on display at Fr.Jørgensen's exhibition stand on the Gave & Interiørmessa (Spring Market) which opened early today and will be open during the weekend, so that's why we couldn't show you the quilt before ;o)
The quilt is promoting the new fabric line from RJR fabrics, and the pattern is a 6 month BOM with these fabrics. Quiltegården in Trondheim are going to have it in the shop, so give them a call, or an e-mail if you are interested :o) 

I couldn't resist using the extra pieces I had left from the first table runner I made a week ago. I turned it into a similar table runner, and I gave it to my mom yesterday. The only thing different from the first one, is the quilting. This is only my second finish this year, but hope to finish some more projects next month:o)


Happy sewing,
Laila

Nydelig quilt, og så fint quiltet! Jeg har notert meg opplysningene ang den lekre sommerduken. Det frister å sy den, og det vil helt sikkert være biter å finne i restekurven... Ha en fin kveld,og så er det jo snart helg!

Nydelig! Hadde nok en mistanke om at det var du som hadde laget teppet da jeg så det på Quiltegården sin blogg. Flott arbeid som vanlig :-)

Well done, my sweet friend! So happy for you...for one, being asked to work on the project...and for another, being DONE and enjoying the view. ;-) I hope this opens many doors for you!

As always, love and hugs....
