Client quilt and a finish

Finished a beautiful client quilt today. Been working on it for a long time, but had a lot of fun quilting this!
The owner liked it, and I'm allowed to share some photos on my blog. 
It's a beautiful dresden plate quilt, with lots of beautiful fabrics. 

The pattern on the border has become my favorite, and you can find a tutorial over at Kathy's blog. She did teach me how to do this.
I hope to make a quilt like this one day. Love these dresden plate blocks. Perfect for those favorite fabrics :o)

I finished the binding on my "Pie in the sky" quilt a while ago and here's a photo of the finished quilt: 
The fabrics and colors are not easy to show on this photo, since it's a large quilt and I had to stand back to manage to take a photo of the whole thing. But you can see some close up's on my previous post :-)

I've started a new project, and will show you when I make some progress on it. It's a lot of cutting and piecing on it, but I think it will be one of the most beautiful quilts I've made. It's a quilt I look forward to quilt on my longarm. Lots of ideas, and hope my skills will not let me down. I need a lot of practice before I will dare to quilt it. Will have to make a practice piece to try out my ideas, I think. 

Hope you all are having a nice and creative weekend,

Så fint arbeid du har gjort med quiltingen på den første quilten. Quiltingen på rammen er lekker - buene i quiltingen er med på å løte opp rammen - flott, Laila !
Og quilten din er utrolig lekker med alle de flotte fargene - dette er en quilt til å bli glad i og av :o)
Flinke du min venn !

You are showing beautiful quilts today! You quilted the Dresden quilt very nice, and the pie in the sky is such a nice scrappy looking quilt. You used so many different colours but everything matches perfectly.
