A weekend of vitamin Q

On Friday nine women packed our sewing machines, fabrics and notions, ongoing projects and patterns for new ones, and went for a weekend stay at Lapp-Elisa's in Lennartsfors in Sweden.


I think we all were in need of some vitamin Q. Lots of sewing was done, all of us working dilligently on our projects. Friday night I finished my last block for my Christmas quilt (and forgot to take a close-up picture, but it's the one on the top left corner), and yesterday I worked on the setting for the blocks.



I managed to get all the sashing stitched, the center of the top together and add the inner border before it got too late Saturday night


And before breakfast this morning the outer border was attached. Just as the blocks in this quilt is from a Jennifer Chiaverini pattern, the setting is found in her pattern book Traditions from Elm Creek Quilts, however my borders are a bit narrower. 


A few pictures of the sewing room with some of Elisabeth's colourful quilts and quilt tops, as well as all our stash spread around. the tables


We have already started planning our next get-togeher here - the date is set and we have started thinking of what to do.


Of course I spent some money, but I haven't unpacked my bags yet, so that will have to be shared in a later post.


Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

A quilt is distinguishable from other types of blankets because it is pieced together with several pieces of cloth.
