still a WIP


Supposed to be a spring wall hanging. The four birds will be the center and I'll surround them with purple and yellow curves and then with the beautiful bird fabric on the left.
 It snows again, so maybe it really will be finished in time for spring :-)

First Finish in 2011

I don't even know when I started this quilt, probably in the last century :-)
I collected those old-fashioned fabrics for a while, then had to ( = couldn't wait ) start sewing the blocks before I had enough for a whole quilt and some time during the years I didn't like it any more.

Now I'm using other colours, other techniques and I even considered giving the blocks away, but I don't know why,  I just had to finish it.

So plans for the layout where changed, I swapped fabric because I didn't want to buy more and finally this UFO has bit the dust. I used leftovers for the back, something I learnt from Bonnie's blog.

Here it is:

The back:


and a detail-shot of my machine quilting:
There are even some dragonflies ( Libellen ) in this quilt :-)

I really like how it turned out and it will be donated .

Happy New Year


On one of the last days of 2010 a beautiful package arrived. I was the lucky second winner of some dotted goodies :-). As the original winner didn't send her address , so Stephanie from Loft Creations chose another one and I didn't hesitate to send my address.

Along with  beautiful cards, buttons, M&M's and other things she send a wonderful dotted FQ, and as you can see, even the package has dots !!!

Thank you so much Stephanie !

And here's a view from our garden, we still have a lot of snow:
