Weekend sewing

Friday night I found a link to a gorgeous pattern on Quilteville's facebook profile. It was the perfect quilt to spend the weekend working on. It's called "Belle Wave" quilt and is designed by Fresh Lemon Quilts.
 I used some fatquarters from the gorgeous "Saltwater" line by Tula Pink. I must admit I love Tula Pink's fabrics. I bought these some months ago, and happy to find a project to use them in :-)

I finished piecing the quilt early this morning, and got to load it on to the longarm frame. I've never finished a quilt this fast, and it feels so good! Now I will enjoy some binding the next days :-)

 Some close up's to show the fabrics better. It's late over here, so no daylight to show the true colors, but this is pretty close.

I just had to have some "me-time" this weekend, and I have totally neglected everything else than sewing. No laundry or housework for me this weekend :-)
Guess I have to catch up on the dust bunnies tomorrow  ;-)

Wish you all a great new week,

Long time no see... but I'm still here

It's been so long since I wrote my last blog post. I've been sewing a little bit, and also got to do some longarm quilting. I've quilted three different client quilts in March, and here is a close up on each of them:
 The first one is a quilt made by Rønnaug, a lady in my local quilt guild. She made a smaller version of the last mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter. Love her fabrics. Quilted using a pantograph pattern.

 The second is a quilt made by Sofie, she had used a lot of yummy fabrics in her quilt. This one is also quilted using a pantograph pattern.

The third one is made by Kirsti, and it's made with gorgeous fabrics. Also quilted using a pantograph pattern.

Lot of my Blogland friends are also friends of mine on facebook. One of them is Nicola, and she had a PIF over at facebook a while ago, which I signed up to. She sent me a lovely book, and a handmade toiletry purse. I just love the gorgeous fabrics she used! I didn't have anyone signing up on my PIF at facebook, so I guess the right thing to do is to make a nice parcel to ship over to Nicola :-)

I have an Instagram profile, and lots of yummy stuff to look at over there, and lots of ideas and inspiration. I found the profile of a talented lady, Steffani, and just fell in love with her version of the Tula Pink quilt called "Dreamweaver". I bought the book by Tula pink and some of the fabrics a while ago, but since Steffani is a quilt shop owner of  Country fabrics and quilting, and made kits for this special quilt with fabrics from several of the Tula Pink lines, I just had to ask her to ship a couple of them over to Norway.
She also sent me a photo of her version of the quilt. Yummy or what???
Since I have made some of the pieces for the quilt with the fabrics I bought a while ago, it will not take long before I've got enough blocks to finish this quilt. 
Steffani has a blog too and you should check it out :-) She is a talented longarm quilter too :-)

I haven't been sewing as much as I used to for a while. I've had a few things to deal with that kept me busy. Sometimes life happens, and sewing is not on top of the priority list. 
I have been making a few blocks for the "Winter Bloom" quilts I'm going to make. I'm working on two of each block, so the plan is to make two quilts. We'll see if I'll be able finish them both at the same time, or one now and one later :-)
Happy sewing,
