I have been a bit busy, but have been sewing now and then this month. This weekend I was home alone with my sewing machine, since my kids and their dad had a trip to their grandparents cabin a couple of hours away from here. I did stay home to finish the wedding gift for our friends wedding next weekend, but I also did get the time do some other sewing. I will blog "the gift" after next weekend:-)
But some of the other things I've done the last month:
Star in a star blocks. I just love the pattern:-) Had to try some different ones:-)
Some of you may know the block;-)
And Darcie, I did a lot of doodling like you advised me to, and this is the result:
I know I will be practicing a hole lot more on this free motion pattern, but it is definitely worth it, it is just so lovely!
I used only fabrics from my stash on the two hexagon quilts. The first one (not quilted/finished) is going to be a bed spread, the other one, a big table runner for my mum:-)
I did also get some progress on the Orion star quilt for my oldest boy. He did pick out some other fabrics than I did, and after a trip to Quiltegården, this is the result so far:
This is only three of the color combinations, there is three more to go:-)
Today I started on a quilt I know I will use some time on, but it is so lovely. It's a quilt over at Bonnie's webpage. She has so many lovely quilts and patterns. It is called My Blue Heaven. A quilt with just two blocks, a puss in the corner block and an hour glass star block. I love it!
Check it out on her page :
My plan is to use only fabrics from my stash. And I realized I had more blue fabrics after all...
Got to get back to the sewing machine:-) See ya!
