I hope you all had a wonderful Easter time!
For us it was just normal days. No public holidays here. In Norway we have 3 public holidays at Easter; Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Monday. You can learn more about Easter in Norway here.
The days since my previous blog post has kept me busy sewing. I have a few small finishes and a couple of days ago I decided to work on some UFO's.
Do you remember the Quilts! Quilts! Quilts! on Etsy UFO challenge that started earlier this year? I entered 8 UFO and so far I have finished 4 of them - 4 to go!
I got the fabric for the border and binding for this one awhile ago, but needed some courage to quilt it. Isn't it so; quilting a big quilt on a small domestic sewing machine requires courage - LOL! I added the border last week, sandwiched, pinned and thread basted and the quilting was done yesterday. It's ready for the binding.
Usually thread tension is an issue, but no such problems occurred while I was quilting this one.
Actually it went so smooth that I decided to quilt the log cabin quilt too! It was already sandwiched and thread basted last year, but I couldn't decide on how to quilt it. I had in mind some floral pattern, but in the end I decided on FMQ. I spent yesterday afternoon and this morning quilting it. I have left to quilt the border, which will be straight lines. Wrestling these two big quilts around for 1.5 days, I feel it in my neck and shoulder! :)
A few mug rug finishes
I sold a mug rug like this some days ago, and the next day I got a convo if I could make a similar one. I had the fabrics so no problem. Both are on the way to the US!
While I was at it, I decided to make a few more
The last one, with an applique heart. :)
My coffee mug is empty so I guess that means continue working on the UFO's?! :)
