Shopping

What is this? I have been a naughty girl :-) Lunch time Thursday I was in Vennesla and of course I had to visit the local quiltshop Lydia quiltshop . The prices are very nice an even the plan was: not shop much I got all this fabric. The excuse for my self is that my youngest boy turn 18 this day so I want celebrate that both my boys are of age.

I don’t know way, but I love rulers so when I fond one that I didn’t have I had to buy it . I have done flying gees
the way Eleanor Burns do them many times, using my other rulers when cutting and that works fine. But to day I found out that I “need” this one. LOL

This is what I have done recently. It’s not like the one that was inn my head before I stated sewing. Well everything can’t be ass you plan. I’m not quite satisfied with the result. My next step is to quilt the table runner; maybe I’ll do some appliqué.

Velkommen Welcome

Hei og velkommen til min blogg, her vil jeg dele med deg mitt lappeliv. Litt annet også en gang iblant.
Mye av det jeg har laget er det bilde av på min
webshots. Vil allikevel presentere noe av det jeg har laget her.


Hello and welcome to my blog, I want to share with you my quiltinglife and sometimes other stuff too.
I started with quilting in 1992 many of my quilts you are welcome to see at my
webshots. Some of my favorites and those I just finished, I have added to my blog, need some pictures to start with. LOL



My Dear Jane quilt, this is the quilt that I’m most proud off to have done. I started on this quilt in September 2001 and it was finished October 2005. It’s all done on my sewing machine. My quilt has 4 257 pieces the name is May way Jane, because I just did it my way.


Everyone is stupid when I’m sad. Yes that is the name of this quilt. Started a day that wasn’t best, but I’m very satisfied with the result. Made in 1996 and it’s one of my favorites.


This quilt is made in 1997, the door size was deciding for the quilt size. The name of this quilt is My small village, inspired from a Hungarian movie.

The next three quilts was made in 2005 in a quilting class at my local quilt shop Meretes Atelier It was real fun.





And some other stuff i have made
