A finished quilt!

Hi there!

Finally....my quilt with coltsfoot is finished! It did take a while but what's the hurry? 

Big, important things happen!

Since my last post I've become a grandmother again. A little boy called Aksel.

 Who has the time to sew then?

....but a small quilt to Aksel is in my mind!

Well...here is the quilt inspired during this lovely spring.


It started with a simple sketch and my  longing for spring.





And then.....

A quilt that breathe a freshness with cool blue background 
and the wonderful warm coltsfoot ...one of my favorite flowers!




The quilt measure 28x28 inches and is quilted on mashine.





I've embroidered circles to get an movement and an expressive background.






......an extreme close-up!







The back is pretty exciting too!




Well...I hope you don't have to wait so long for my next blog post ... 
I have ideas and soon the school holidays are here.

 It's hopeful!

See you soon!
Margreth
