Warming quilts

P1020030

I have finished the top I started at May Britt’s Warming quilts sew together in Elverum and it is sent to May Britt to show on the local quilt guild Show & Tell tonight.
It made but a small dent in my black stash, but when it comes to the backing I think the stash reduction will show better in the black fabric box :-)
My goal is to empty the black fabric box through 2009!

We really was a productive gang that Saturday, at the sew-together :-)

The local newspaper made an article about us, with photos!

Some of us will meet at Bente’s (to the outer right - no blog) the first weekend of May!

I have a plan for some strip reducing amongst us before that – I just have not let everyone in on the plans just yet :-)

This has so far been a month of many deadlines, some to share, some not to share (yet).
Not a quiet moment in the sewing corner, except from my morning tea moments.

Hanne, that quilt is just perfect for the Black and White Quilt Challenge project.

Utrolig flott quilt du har laget. De røde, blå og hvite stoffene er så flotte sammen. Lykke til videre med et flott prosjekt!!

Tøfft teppe. Menjeg skjønner ikke målet med å tømme den svarte boksen med stoff - her driver jeg og samler på svarte. Synes svart , rødt og hvitt er stilig i lag.

My cousin wants me to make her a quilt in these colors. I really like how yours came out! I will tuck this idea away for future use. It kind of looks like Happy Hour (is it?) but not sure without checking the book. Nice job!

Black, white, & red - one of my favorite color combinations. Your quilt looks great!

Veldig kul quilt, hadde falt i smak hos mange jeg kjenner inkl. meg, både pga fargekombinasjon og enkle, rene former!
