I finally finished my current work and now I can start to relax...
And I am already working on a new quilt.
Since I discovered some very old vintage quilts on ebay made from feedsack fabric in the double wedding ring pattern, I wanted to make one by my own. As I found it quite hard to get feedsack fabric for a reasonable price, I found the 30ies Reproduction prints and knew that these were the ones I needed.
The Pickledish Quiltalong from Aneela is the perfect possibility for me to start with this project, because of the wonderful and easy description from her.
I already made the first arches and can´t wait to finish the whole quilt. My plan is to combine it with snow white Kona cotton.
Oh I already can see the Quilt lying on my bed...
OK I guess this will be the last post for this year.
After Christmas I am off to the mountains. I will say hello again next year.
A wonderful Christmas for you and a happy new year.

Another one done...

I am sooo happy that this one is done. I worked on it for a while, and it took ages, also because there was so much "real" work to do, that there was so little time for the good things.
Tommorrow I am going to Stuttgart for the weekend to visit my sister and for a Christmas Craft Fair.This is why I really had to finish the Quilt so I can give it to my sister when I am there.

And this is also the reason for the bad photos. I took them this morning when the sun wasn´t totally up just before i wrapped the Quilt in Wrapping Paper.
I slowly start a new project the Pickledish Quiltalong with Aneela Hoey.
For this I ordered a Fat Quarter Bundle of thirties reproduction prints. This will be a very traditional looking Quilt. But more about this another time...
See You,

Mums Quilt

I finally finished my mums quilt for Christmas. The first where I did a little handquilting also, which took ages, as the most of you might know.
But I am quite happy with how it turned out. I would definitely not choose these fabrics and colours for a quilt for me, but I know (hope) that she will like it.
Now I have to finish the That Girl That Quiltalong Quilt for my sister, and as christmas rushing towards us, I have to hurry!!!
Two more "Craft-Design-Market-Weekends" till Christmas and I must say there is nearly no energy left inside my brain and body...
I am so looking forward to go on my skiing holidays from the 25th of december. The austrian mountains are waiting for me... can´t wait either, I didn´t go skiing for ten years, i hope I still can come down the mountains....;-)
I hope you guys have a little calmer christmas time and enjoy some hot drinks on some funky mug rugs...
Have a very nice christmas time!
