Weekend inspirations

A couple of weeks ago Hanne and I joined a few other quilting ladies to have a mass-sewing session for the "Tepper som varmer" - "Quilts that warm" - run by the Norwegian Quilters Asociation, made for for children that spend long time in hospital. Hanne has made quite a few quilts for them, my first, but definitely not the last!

Being me, I forgot to utilize my camera during the weekend (brought it, but it got stuck in the bag, sigh!), but today I was lucky to get some pictures from one of the ladies arranging the weekend (thank you, Gretha!), and thought I'd share some of the creativity with everyone.

This is the quilt all done! A good lap size quilt, I had a lot of fun making - it sort of came to life as I went along, starting with the Broken Dishes blocks and improvising from there - a simple meandering all over keep the three layers together.



All in all 31 quilts/quilt tops was produced during the weekend, it was fab to participate, and lots of inspiration to take home!
Hope everyone have a wonderful week!
Sincerely, Anne Ida

Så bra at du har vore med på dette!! Tvilar ikkje på at det var inspirerande. Kven sender de alle teppa til? Dette burde vere ein inspirasjon for oss alle!
PS: Takk for kommentar på mine to engledamer, og ... kjekt du er tilbake i blogland!

This is great. I am trying to start making quilts like this here in my group, but it is so difficult to get them to do it.

Mange flotte tepper som vil glede mange barn som sliter med sykdommer og må legges inn på sykehus. Et kjempeflott tiltak fra hele Norges quiltedamer.
