Not much quilting...

Just stopping by on my way from a few days at the summer house, and on my way to meet the angel stitchers at May Britt's for the weekend. I haven't quilted much lately, so I thought I'd show the finished Pickled Cabbage quilt. If you have followed my blog a while, you know this is the one of the two "Twin Sisters" quilts Rose and I made when I was visiting her in Tasmania in February:

I finished mine a little while back, but haven't showed it here on my blog yet. On my way to the summer house a few days ago I brought it to my parent's house so that it can decorate my bed/their guest bed - I figured it was better used there than in a cupboard in my flat. I'm happy with how it turned out, and it hold such precious memories for me!

Well, I better get some sleep - I'll meet the angel stitchers in the morning, and hopefully I have something to report on Sunday evening :o) I'll leave of this post with a close-up of a Sandefjord rose (been playing with my camera) - named from the city where our summer house is - pretty:

Happy quilting weekend!
Sincerely, Anne Ida

The quilt looks great and what a good idea putting it on your bed at your parents instead of in a cupboard. It is too nice to be hidden away. Love the rose too, my Dad was born in Sandefjord and I still have an uncle living there.
