Wednesday update

P1050027

The Dear Jane Christmas top is nearly done, and looking good,
and the 2 sides for the Dear Jane sherbet colours tote is ready for machine quilting.
The same blocks, and yet so different when you change setting and colours :-)

Goals for tomorrow is to add borders to the quilt top, and I will keep on working on my tote too.

I miss hand piecing already!
I think I have to prep a block for hand piecing tomorrow. I can not do machine work for long periods at a time!

P1050030 
I got my hexagon quilt back from the machine quilter today, and it looks GORGEOUS !!

Merete does beautiful machine quilting and I love the pantograph she used, named Pop Corn. 

I also bought a new backing for the quilt from Merete - dark brown, with beige drawings of flowers and butterflies.

When I am done with the goals for this week in the DJ department I will add binding to my hexagon quilt :-)

What a great Dear Jane Christmas-top!
It's really surprising how different the other DJ-blocks look. Still also lovely colours....!!
Just love your hexagon-quilt! Enjoy the binding!

Sekskantteppet ditt vart heilt nydelig, har følgt med deg frå då du starta på det. Både fargane, stoffa og quilinga var super!

Lekkert-lekkert-lekkert! Nydelig Dear Jane-quilt og flott quilting på Hexagonquilten. Må bare bøye meg i støvet for alt du får unna for tida. "You are amazing"!

Eg støttar meg til Anne-Grethe sine ord! Blir faktisk mest mållaus av så mykje fint på ein gong! Gledar meg til å sjå det nyaste du kjem med på handsaumfronten...har ei lita aning. Om eg har rett, så er det berre å seie at du fortener å byrje på noko nytt etter alt dette!

Nydelig Hanne. Du er kjempeflink og gjør så flott arbeid. Og hva du rekker.... Har døgnet ditt mer enn 24 timer? :-)).
