Ordered a book by Judy Martin some time ago, I'm a big fan of her work. Her patterns are just stunning, and I like the way they are explained in her books. Easy to follow, even though some of the patterns are really full of details. I've got almost all of her books, and they are just great! So full of inspiration!
I made a test block from one of the patterns, since I'm looking for a quilt that looks scrappy, and it's ment to be a quilt for a boy.
What do you think? The block mesures 12", so it doesn't take that long to build a top big enough.
I forgot to show you my little table runner made of triangles, just so I can practice my skills on hand quilting.
I got so inspired by Kviltstina's quilt, the one she uses as her blog background. It is a really beautiful quilt. So I had to give it a try :o)
I find it hard to start and stop, attaching the threads. But I guess I'll get there.
I really love to hand quilt, but it takes so much time, so I am only doing that for special quilts. I am thinking of making a miniature quilt one day, with scrappy spools, maybe in some reproduction fabrics. I have bought some few now and then, but I need to build up that stash some more, to get the variations I want.
Im looking forward to the weekend, hopeing to spend some time in the sewing room again. I want to start work on some Easter projects, and I guess that will be my focus project this month.
