Camera working

Just a quick stop at the computer, letting anyone who have found my blog know I have got my camera working. I'm posting a picture of the star-barn-raising quilt (still no binding though). I pieced the top at a class at the LQS (dere norske der ute kjenner sikkert til Lappemakeriet på Bærums Verk!). The class was taught by Norwegian quilter Helle Løvenskiold, and it was really enjoyable and fun. She was teaching the crazy tecnique developed by the ladies at Buggy Barn - I'd really like to have another go at the tecnique some time:-)




I must admit I have not done the beautiful quilting myself! The quilt is rather large (about a queen size bed) and my shoulders would not survive the weight - at least not at the sewing machine. But thanks to Anne Marit at Gla'Lappen here in Oslo, it will be finnished as soon as I stich that binding on.... Hopefully I'll post a picture of the finnished quilt some time soon!

And I hope I'll have some examples of my siggie blocks to show some time during this week end:-)

Anne, this is such a pretty quilt. I really like the colors - I think in 2004, all of the quilts I started used these fall like colors. I saved that star pattern somewhere, because I want to make something like that, but I'm not sure where I put it, and I have so many UFOs to complete!
