Fabrics, Quilts

Tripping again…

After finishing Snöfrid’s quilt…yes it is finished
and delivered tonight..:0)
Photos will come once I get them out of the camera!!!

I started to tripping my way around the world again
…decided that I ought to take a look into my old fabrics and see what I could find there…so a lot of fabrics were cut into strips and hung up to see if they would match my newer ones

Think they will!!!! :0))
So see you later with some blocks made!!

Fabrics, Quilts, Scrappy trip along

Started with these ….

Well I couldn’t resist any longer… I am doing what almost everyone is doing….
…Scrappy Tripping Around the World…
There are Flickr groups and lots of followers on
Instagram #scrappytripalong
showing lots and lots of wonderful blocks…

So inspiration there is!!!
Started with these fabrics…
and had no actual plan on how I wanted it to look like
…accept but colourful and happy!

So one block were made one day….

And that block were followed by some more blocks….
And some more
It have been so much fun
Just picking some nice fabrics and don’t think that much if they will work together or not…well some I thought…no that will not work…but they have become almost the best ones!!!
Really long to come home to make some more blocks…
I really do!!!
(Are at my parents this weekend…
waiting for brothers child number four to be born)
 
So my hope for next week is some more sewing!!!

Fabrics, Pillows, Retro

A colour fix…

 Kitchen sofa desperately needed a new cover…
Went to my trustful fabric shop…
My own fabric closet
and found an old but oh so wonderful curtain
With wide stripes in red, orange and pinks
PERFECT!!!

Sorry haven’t a before photo…
Forgot…:0)

When the cover was finished…I realised that the pillows
Didn’t match at all…
So what to do..
A raid through my beloved fabric closet…
where I found some great fabrics…
Remembered a fabric I had at my old work…
So a little trip took me there..
And I got a wonderful and just perfect fabric..
I’m so in love with it…

Retro…
Red background..
Orange and pink flowers
With a little touch of purple and white…

…L O V E L Y…

…S M I L I N G …

…Ric rac and Pom Pom added…

And I have a cheerful and happy little corner
and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas !!!

So so pleased with this…
Joy and happiness!!!

…And Molly have approved and tested…

Now it’s just …
I need some new quilts!!!!
