This is a quilt that I made some years ago. I walked in the fields with my camera photographing many, many barns before starting the quilt. Exploring a various combination of colurs drawing and painting with water color paints. First I made a quilt with barns in the colors of early spring and then this one in summer plumage. I find the barns very beatiful and I like the old grey wood and timber. It's like they have a soul and a story to tell! It is culture buildings that gradually laps and disappear. The quilt is quilted by hand and with some embroidery and appliqé. The fabrics that I used for the barns are printed with old wood from barns wich I painted with textile color. It really was a fun projekt!

Maybe the weather is to hot and sunny to sew... BUT... you can plan your next move. There are three projekts in progress......and today I bought a lot of treads in various colors. You need a LOT of colors! Well, if it is to hot you can RUN. So I went running for an hour and then some yoga ....now I'm like a new person with more ideas for quiltprojekts! Do I need moore? Yes, of course!!! You never know when rainy days are here!!!

Thanks to you who read and comment my blogg!My garden needs a great deal of work. Planting, watering, digging.... name it! I'm sweating and enjoying to see it grow. I also discover my studio again...looking at fabrics and plan my next projekt. But first....finish what I started.....fabrics to my Garden Journal blocks. Green and ...? What pattern? The quilt on the photo is an old one. I found the inspiration from a picture at a cafe´ in Strassburgh many years ago.

We went to Fjällbacka to feel the atmosphere. This is the place where Camilla Läckberg found the inspiration for her detective novels. But...this is an idyll far from murder and scary things. Here you can find all that makes the swedish westcoust so unique....archipelago, boats, boat landings, fishing huts and a good "fika".
