A productive weekend

This weekend I finished the quilt for my DS1. I started working on the "Comfort quilt" right away when the issue #3 of Vignette by Leanne Beasley where released back in July. I have been working on it now and then, and since I pieced all the blocks a while ago it didn't take much time to join the blocks into rows, and the rows into a top. I loaded the quilt top on the longarm machine and finished the quilting on Saturday. DS1 told me a while ago which pantograph pattern he wanted me to use, and also which thread he liked the best. Finished the binding late last night, and I was so happy to see how it turned out!
I used wool batting for this, and it's so light! I will definitely use wool batting in quilts later too.



I just couldn't resist taking some photos of the quilt outside in the snow today. It started snowing late last night, and it looked like a Christmas card outside when we woke up this morning :o) I have to admit I like the snow ;o)


I cut most of the pieces for the "Mill Girls" quilt when I joined the quiltalong for this quilt. 
I haven't made any blog posts for a while, so I haven't got to tell about the progress on it. I finished the blocks and did piece them into rows last weekend. Need to cut the large pieces to join the rows, and will be working on the hour glass blocks for the border.



When I was at Quiltegården a month ago, I bought the latest pattern from AnnAKa, and I've been working a little bit on one of the stitcheries the last week. Slow progress since a bug with fever decided to stay for some days. 




So happy to feel better, and looking forward to get back at work tomorrow. 
Wish you all a great new week,
Laila

Super flot tæppe til en ung mand og dejlige farver.
Mill Girls blokkene er bare så søde og feminine at se på. Det bliver et smukt tæppe.
Håber, du har det bedre igen.

Kjempefint teppe. Og Mill Girls quilten blir nydelig. Så mye fristende som jeg også har lyst til...... Engelen din er herlig, og den er det overkommelig at jeg også kan få sydd snart.
Håper du holder deg frisk nå og får en fin førjulstid.
Klem

Wow så heldig sønnen din er. Så fantastisk flott quilt! Jeg får lyst til å løpe opp på syrommet og finne fram alle japanerne mine :o)

Og den andre quilten din, hva skal jeg si.... WOW..... nydelig den også. Så mange flotte blokker, det blir en nydelig quilt.
Også ønsker jeg deg riktig god bedring, selv om du sier at du er bedre :o)))
