Scrapbins are full

I have two baskets that I put scraps in. Couldn't get any more in them, thought it was time to figure out what to do with some of the scraps. First I started to sort out the pieces, and put them in plasticbags. Strips will be used in log cabin quilts, odd bits for applique or EPP. Triangles were also put in a bag. 

Started sewing HST of the triangles. Squared them up to a 2" size.

Then sewed them in to rows with ten square in each row.

Then adding row by row untill I was happy with the size.

Added a green fabric for borders on each side and a pink one at top and bottom borders. 
The top is now ca. 21,5" wide and 25,5" long. It is put in the basket with other tops ready for quilting.
Now I am happy to say that the bag with triangles is almost empty.

I am getting along with quilting on the summerquilt.

Here I am testing designs to use in the sashing. Have not decided yet what it will be.

This top has been laying around for a long time (think at least five years). Have now started handquilting it. It is made of blocks with dresdenplates and sasing between. I use a old duvet cover as backing and cotton batting. I am trying basting with saftypins for the first time. So far I'm happy with the result.

Some weeks ago I made two bags. Put a dresdenplate made of fabrics from the scrapbins.

Peek a boo

A while back my mum asked me to make a baby quilt for her. A friend was becoming a granny, and she wanted to have a spesial present.
I got some fabrics out, and found a pattern from Nathalie Bird called "Peek a Boo".
It is machinequilted by me! Simple crosses all over. I used wool batting.

Dobbel weddingring quilt

The quilt is finished. It is done with EPP  and reverse applique. Don't have photos of it after it was quilted by longarm machine, it is currently living at Quiltegaarden. But I do have photos of the top.
