Two of the blocks for the Mill Girls quilt are finished

Like I told you in my previous post, I'm attending a quilt-along for the gorgeous "Mill Girls" quilt on a Yahoo group called SBS and other Elm Creek quiltsToday is the first day of the quilt-along. I'm so excited to work on this beautiful quilt, and I do look forward to get to see all the different quilts the ladies will be making. Yesterday I got to cut some more fabrics, and I also got to play with some of the hourglass blocks, and pieced some of them. Today I finished a nice little pile of them, and I think they look pretty good :o) A lot more to finish, but I'm looking forward to get a lot of sewing done this weekend. 




Finished two of the blocks, and I like the way the fabrics looks together. I just love these japanese fabrics! And they work so well with a lot of other fabrics too. I'm very pleased to do some stashbusting, a lot of these fabrics where bought long ago and some recently :o)




I'm looking forward to make them all, it's 20 blocks we need for this quilt, and get to quilt it on the longarm machine. 




Wish all the other ladies good luck on their "Mill Girls" quilt!
Happy Sewing,
Laila

Kjempefine blokker. Men er veldig nysgjerrig på hvordan denne quilten ser ut. Hvor kan jeg gå for å se et bilde av den?
Ha en riktig fin helg!
