Roosters...


Another UFO is done! I started working on it last year, but never got around to finish it because I didn't have enough batting. I don't really like having too many UFO's - it becomes a bit overwhelming - I think... I can't really believe it when I hear some quilters have about 15-20 UFO's!!! I believe I had lost courage and hadn't known how to attack that many UFO's!

The wall quilt was supposed to be "Ruffled Feathers" (Grace Pullen). Sadly I didn't get all the fabrics that were meant for the quilt. I had to substitute six of the nine fabrics with fabrics from "Rise'n Shine". It doesn't really matter; it turned out to be my own twist on it. :) The wall quilt measures 67" square (170 x 170 cm). It took me two days quilting it, mainly stitched in the ditch.

Veggquilten din er kjempeflott. Og nei jeg blir ikke stressa over å ha mange ufoer, jeg har under 10 nå, men har hatt over 30. Kjenner quiltere som har over 100. Det er fort gjort hvis man får masse inspirasjon på en gang og hele tiden har lyst til å prøve noe nytt. Jeg har postet brev til deg idag, vet ikke hvor lang tid postgangen tar.

Takk til Sigrun og Merete!
Gleder meg til brevet ditt Sigrun! Det vil nok ta ca et par uker. Skal gi deg beskjed når jeg får det.
