A finish and an award

If you remember this post about me going to Elverum to quilt with some of the other norwegian quilting ladies. So much inspiration stitching with a group like that - and such pretty quilts were made.

you might also remember that I brought with me some swap blocks. Well, they were pieced into a quilt top, and I got it layered (thank you Merete for helping me pin baste it!) and started quilting it while there. This is the back, and shows how it's quilted:
Thursday night I finished the quilting and today/tonight I attached the binding. And this is how it turned out:

Hopefully some young person will appreciate it :o) All that is left is to attach this cute label Lise made:
Lately I have been so lucky to receive this award from Elin/Lappetausa, Laila/sibirfrydogquilt and Laila/Litamora:

Thank you so much, ladies! Now the rules are:
1. The winner can copy this award, and post it on her blog.
2. Link to the blog you got it from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other bloggers.
4. Make links to these blogs in your post.
5. Leave a comment on the blog you gave the award to.

Since I have received the award three times does that mean I get to nominate 21 other bloggers??? And how do I pick them among all the creative bloggers out there??? Here's what I have decided to do: If you comment on this post you are a receiver of the award. Feel free to download it to your blog and pass it on to someone you think should receive it :o)
