Been making some progress

I've been neglecting my blog lately, but I've been sewing between being busy :o)
I finished the quilting on this quilt yesterday, and got to attach the binding. Finished sewing it down by hand early this morning, so another finish for me this month :-)
I used the scraps from this and this quilt, so now there is not much left of the two fatquarter bundles of Bliss and Ruby. I've got two more quilts using the Bliss line from Moda in my UFO bins, so I hope I get to finish them soon. Love these fabrics. Makes me think about Spring and Summer :-) The pattern is "Smokey Mountain Star" by Bonnie Hunter/Quiltville. I've used this pattern before, and I just love it! I know I will use it again, it's fast, easy and I love the scrappy stars:-)

Close up's of the quilting and the gorgeous fabrics:

I've been quilting a few quilts for others during the last two months. The first one is the one I finished last weekend. It's a gorgeous quilt made by Kjersti Johanne and Kirsti. You can read more about the quilt on Kirsti's blog :-)

This quilt is a lovely 36 patch quilt made by Elin T. Grov/Lappetausa, and if you pop over to her blog you can see the whole quilt there. I love it!

Last weekend I decided to cut the fabrics for this month's AYOS quilt "Summer Day". I enlarged the blocks, so I can make a lap quilt using the pattern. I love how it looks so far, and hope to finish it before the month is over. Wish I had more time to sew!

I've been making progress on my "Hana's basket", a design by Gail Pan. It is one of the project from the weekend class with Gail and Helen. I hope to hand quilt this lovely quilt, and I'm looking forward to finish the needleturn applique so I can get to the part where the hand quilting begins :-)

Wish you all a great weekend, and happy sewing :-)

Hello Laila,
you came along well with your projects, and the quilting is looking good once more. You are really getting the hang of it, it is nice that you started to quilt for others too!

Så mye fint, Laila. Likte spesielt godt stjerneteppet. Håper vi ses snart.

Her var det som vanlig mye fint og inspirerende å se. Nydelig stjerner av Ruby, hun kler hvitt.

They are all gorgeous! You have been really busy... and 'Summer Day' sewed with Etchings will be great ;o)

Wow! You really have been busy! your Smokey Mountain Star quilt is adorable. I'm hoarding my Ruby scraps -- they're just so pretty.

Your longarm quilting is very nice. And I can't wait to see the hand quilting on your Gail Pan project. I know it's going to be gorgeous!
