Turning criminal?

Anyone got some chain cutters to lend me? *lol* I have been so tempted to commit a theft ever since I discovered this outside the 7-Eleven down the street:



Gorgeous, aren't they? And soooo fitting for a quilter! But no, they are probably not worth turning criminal over ;o) In stead they can be of some inspiration! I have done a 12" test block:



Not sure what I'll do... Perhaps someday it will be sewn into a quilt, a table runner, a one block cushion, or maybe it will just end up in the orphan blocks box?

Wishing everyone a wonderful and creative weekend!

Aha, det finnes flere altså! Jeg fotograferte meg selv ved et sånt bord i Mora i sommer. Skal legge ut bilde på det en dag. Ellers en utrolig fin blogg!

Gorgeous. Have you asked them where they got them from. You might be able to purchase them

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Må si meg enig i at dette var lekkert. Stol og bord kunne jeg også gjerne hatt på verandaen :o) Smart å sy en lik blokk, dette kunne bli ett flott sett med brukker og løpere.

Kjempelekkert - og jeg forstår godt du ble inspirert. Jeg var i vatikanstaten for et år siden. I museet er det et fantastisk flott loft med loftsmalerier. Jeg fikk også veldig lyst til å "få" det med hjem - men det ble bare et bilde og masse inspirasjon :o)

I guess you can ask the shop where they bought the chairs and table. Maybe you can buy it too. (don't forget to tell us if you do)

If there are two of them, I'll come help you sneak them off!! Love them. I suppose you're right though...we should all stay on the right side of the law. Love your block. I don't think it's going to be an orphan. I think it will end up as a part of an amazing quilt some day.

Bjørg har det samme foran huset sitt. Hun vet sikkert hvor de kan kjøpes. His ikke de er i salg lenger Spør om du får kjøpe det av 7eleven.Tilby deg å kjøpe noe tilnærmet til dem da vel. Stå på jenta mi.........Jeg plukket ned juletrepynten på juletre på Garand Canaria og fikk kjøpe den flotte øyenstikkeren av bartenderen.Du må bare spørre.........

If you find out where they got them you will need to let us know.

Did you notice? The white part is a Giant Dahlia.

I am glad you decided not to steal the chairs and the table :)

I can easy imagine what you thought... The chairs and table are just sooo great! You have stop by and ask them where to buy! Then you don't need to spend time behind bars, and rather sit on one of these lovely chairs, in the summer, stitching... :o)
Love your star block!
Happy sewing,
Laila

Tracey @ozcountryquiltingmum said...

What a good idea, easier than jail for stealing the table!! I love it as well, I often see tile patterns that I want to make as quilts, Tracey

Meggie said...

Love your block! Also love the setting, but you are right... not worth doing time for. LOL.
