I like Mondays :-)


The furball has tried my basket on for size and I have been sewing along through the weekend!

I do have some finishes to show for it too :-)


First the little Christmas wall hanging / bell pull - a merging of 2 patters from Northern Quilts.

P1060669The Busy Little Christmas Elves quilt is all done, with its new binding.

P1060671Details from the quilting - done by Merete - it is lovely :-)
This quilt my friend Bente and I have had as a BOM, starting January this year, and we are both done :-)
Visit Gail's blog to see Bente's quilt. Scroll down a little bit.

We have also decided on a new BOM - stay tuned :-)

P1060674 My family is invited to a double 50 year birthday celebration on Saturday in 2 weeks.
Here is the good start of 2 quilts, lacking border, which will be bought tomorrow.
Stripes maybe ?
The pattern is Disappearing 9-patch - a simple but nice pattern, with all the fabrics taken from my fabric collection so far :-)
I do have fabric suitable for backing, and binding too, so all I need to buy is the borders.

Conclusion on my challenge to myself:
Did I manage to finish 5 things ? Not exactly.
Do I feel I got a lot done ? Yes indeed :-)
Am I happy about the outcome ? Yes I am!

I think you did great Hanne!!! The things you finished were not small ones, so I would call your weekend of sewing a succes! I love those stitcheries. I have fabric for a disappearing nine patch so maybe I will get busy on it now that I see yours.

I love both your Christmas projects, the quilt is very nice and so is the bell pull. I think I will have a look at the bell pull pattern myself:)

Wow you did accomplish lots! The elves quilt is very sweet and the colors are just right. I also really like the quilting. Cute bell pull and I haven't made the disappearing 9-patch yet, but I really like the tops you made and stripes will add interest.
