A glimpse of..

The weekend has been full of different things. 
Skiing in the snow storm to train a little extra before TjejVasan in Mora next weekend.
 It was an uphill battle, I say. :)
The snow is melting and it's far too early if you are a skier.

 There have been a few hours in the studio too. 
Now that Elizes quilt is finished it's time to continue with my curvy, lush ladies.

Here's how it looks when the shape of the woman is cut
 and marks made to match when sewing together.
 Not so easy but it works! 
One of the pictures shows when the neck comes into place.

I have painted some fabric pieces that work 
very well with other fabrics ... they do the trick.

There is still much to sew ..... some women ...... backgrounds .... decorations etc..'s so very exciting and fun to see how 
the quilt is emerging bit by bit.

Well....this was a glimpse from my weekend and
progress in the studio.

See you!

Finish nr 1

Elizes quilt is finished ! :)
 A thumbler quilt in a color scale that I haven't done before. But I like the cold scale with a touch of blueberry and milk.

I have sewn her name and birth year with cross stitch.
 It went easy on a checked fabric.

 This is the finished quilt!


Some details!

Making a nice back is a challenge .. but it's good to use the small pieces of fabric lying around.
...and that's a lot of them. :)

Happy Quilting!
