Vitamin Q

This weekend was quilt class with fabulous and enthusiastic Hanne - and guess what she was teaching...... Dear Jane! Thank you for a fabulous class, Hanne! On the board and table behind her are some of the blocks she has stitched from this book -not to mention the quilts she brought to show - talk about janiac :o)

A group of chatty and eager ladies had brought needles and thread, some sewing machines and we worked in a steady pace yesterday and today. Lots of tecniques were demonstrated and tried out. This is my production over the weekend:



I managed to sew a Papa'a star!!! So proud of myself! *lol* These blocks will be used in a rather special project - more about that later :o)

Hugs and stitches from

Du verden kor fint! Og så den vanskelegaste blokka...Eg skal ringe Førde med ein gong og melde meg på kurset Hanne skal ha der i september, sjølv om det er akkurat på den tid eg forhåpentlegvis er blitt bestemor!

It is so good to see you posting, I've been worried about you. Your blocks are fabulous! Is there anything you sew that doesn't look great? Hope you are well. Julie in NH
