When I still lived in Norway I had already purchased one ruler, rotary cutter, cutting mat and some fabrics. In the sewing chest I discovered some fabrics that looked a bit "old" as well as an old salt sack that I had completely forgotten! I have no idea how old it is. I remember my mom once mentioned it was common to buy salt in such big quantities for preserving and such... Since I already had that old-looking fabrics, I decided to use it for a wall quilt.

Here is my very first wall quilt - my own design. See how clever our cat Birre-Liten is - how he helps me holding the quilt! Isn't he cute?! :-)

Welcome to the blogging world, Astrid.
BTW, I like this quilt with the salt bag and 'old' fabric. It's kind of connects us with our moms and grannies.

Hi, I gladly stumbled on your blog while perusing fellow Mauritian blogs, and what a nice surprise this is!!Your quilts are absolutely lovely, some very intricate too. And I have a question burning on my lips(well fingers, since am typing) where do you sell? Any retail point in Mauritius? Or online shop...
Thanks for sharing&keep it up:)
