Where do I begin ?


So many wonderful days, so many wonderful moments, so many lovely people, so many lovely places, so much good food - it is hard to know where to begin...... :-)

I have a lot of impressions and a lot of photos to sort, so as a starter you will get a glimpse of my Nearly Insane quilt, with its exquisite machine quilting, done by Catherine Timms, Ontario, Canada.
Every block has quilting in it. The sashing has a lovely heart border as you see and the outer border has a feather.
All quilting is done with white thread and Catherine has done a lovely job.

Velkommen hjem både til deg og quilten!!Den ser flott ut - og at du har hatt det flott er det jo ingen tvil om. Det var så snodig; akkurat da jeg logget på, så kom navnet på bloggen din seilende forbi på den lista som viser nylig oppdaterte blogger!

welcome back. You have to tell us all about your trip!! The quilting on your NI is beautifull!

Patti said...

Such a tease you are to show us only this much of the quilt. I can hardly wait to see it all, plus lots more close-ups - pretty please with sugar on it?

This is an incredible work of art to pass down to your grandchildren and great grandchildren. You must have been over the moon when you saw it.

Wendy K said...

Your quilt looks lovely, I think instead of calling it your 'Nearly Insane' quilt you should call it your 'Piece of Heaven' quilt...it definately looks heavenly!!

Judith said...

This little part looks already beautifull.

Heia så utrolig flott teppet ditt ble ferdig quiltet. Du er heldig som har noen du vet vil gjøre en flott jobb med teppet ditt...Du har sikkert laget mange tepper , men jeg er nettopp ferdig med min to første.To tepper til jentene mine sine senger. Så nå må jag bare bestemme meg for hvor jeg skal sende dem til quilting. Tror det blir Quilten ferdig i Tønsberg.

Bjørg said...

Nydelig teppe Hanne. Vi gleder oss til resten. Til å se alle bildene og til å høre om alt du har opplevd.

Suze said...

I know you had a grand time with all the Janes at Shipshee and then time with Val. Looking forward to seeing and hearing all about it.

Carla said...

What can I say...the quilting only adds to the beauty of your workmanship.

I'm very anxious to hear about Shipshewana because I get to go there in September with a quilt guild trip. I want to know everything you did and saw there!

Laila said...
