A new quilt

I got to buy the issue #3 of Vignette when I visited Quiltegården on Monday. I've seen the gorgeous "Comfort quilt" a while ago at Leanne's blog, and just been waiting for this pattern to hit the quilt shop! It's made in my favorite fabrics, which I've got at a lot of! Of course I had to start making this as fast as I came home!

Got to cut a lot of fabrics for this quilt, and also got to finish some blocks for it already :o)  I will make this quilt for my DS1. I really hope he'll like it as much as I do!
Been sewing for some years now, but never finished a quilt for my boys yet, and I think it's about time I make them a quilt each! It's a bit hard to find fabrics and also patterns that is really "boyish", but the "Comfort quilt" is just perfect! And it's pretty fast to make to, so I might make my three boys a quilt each with this pattern. Got so many gorgeous japanese fabrics to use in a quilt like this, and I think this will be fun and fast to make.
Maybe I'll end up making one for my dear Hubby too :o)

It's great to get to do some sewing now when I have three weeks off work. The weather is not like it should be, so much rain and low temperatures. Think we've had just a couple of days that where really nice the last month or so. I really hope we'll have a lot of sun and warmer weather during the summer holidays. The kids gets a bit bored when they're not able to be outside riding their skateboard, and we usually go to a lake near by to go swimming and sun bathing, it's really not like summer is supposed to be. No fishing trips when it's raining and cold either. Hope it will change, so we'll have a great summer after all.

I've been sewing some more on my "My Garden" quilt, and hope to finish up some more blocks for it soon. It's a beautiful quilt, and I hope to finish some more during the next couple of weeks. I've got so many unfinished projects, but this will be one of the ones I'll work on. It just works best for me to do what I like, when I like. But that's me, you know :o) Enough of "have to's" during the days, so it's nice to make progress with my sewing projects in the way that works for me. They will all be finsihed, when I'm ready for it ;o) No pressure, and I like that.

I hope you all are having a great week, and that you're able to do some of your "want to's" between your "have to's". 

Happy sewing
Laila

Dette blir helt sikkert kjempefine quilter. Har sett på mønsteret jeg også. Det er virkelig et guttemønster. Er spent på fortsettelsen. Lykke til videre med prosjektene.
Ønsker deg en fortsatt fin sommer og en god ferie.

Dette tenker jeg nok at din (ene) sønn blir glad for! Jeg har jo bestilt bladet. Men tror jeg må bestille stoffpakken fra Quiltegården også, de stoffene er nemlig midt i blinken for meg;-) Jeg ble mer fristet til å sy Comfort quilten da jeg så dine bilder og leste boggen din - har bruk for et prosjekt som er noenlunde lett og sy, og som går kjapt! Takk for at du deler, Laila, og fin dag til deg!

Å den var fin! Skjønner godt at du bare MÅ sy denne quilten :o)
Hvilken fantastisk flott ide !

Hva er vel bedre en å kose seg med "verdens vakreste stoffer" ?
Ha en riktig fin uke. Klem

Your son will definitely love his quilt...even more in years to come! It will be a classic!

One of my clients pieced up a quilt much like your "Comfort Quilt." I loved its simplicity. To me, it commanded more attention than a busily-designed quilt. Simple...but most definitely NOT plain!

Hope summer is headed your way! I know that you've got good things planned for you and your family!

Love and hugs to you from me, Laila! ;)
