A very productive sunday...

... lies behind me. I had a long weekend which means that I took the whole sunday as a sewing day. It was a perfect day for that as it was raining cats and dogs for hours. I started with a huge latte sitting in my pj on the kitchen window sill putting the last hexies together for the pillow which is going to go with my kaleidoscope quilt.I appliqued the whole thing to a brown linenish fabric attached a Tula Pinks "Flutterby" binding and here it is- the finished pillow.

I absolutely love it!!! I can´t wait to see it with the quilt. Uhhh, this is not nearly finished... Waiting to be basted and then quilted...
But I can tell you I finished another quilt which was in line. The x and + modified quilt for a friends birthday which was in august. But here it is, beautiful and finished, I quite like it and I hope she will, too.

The last thing I want to show you today are the wonky houses which I made for Monaw in the Bee Germany this months, she sent out some beautiful colourful fabric and we could play with them a little bit. Here they are Monaw I hope you like them.
Have anice week everyone,
yours Miriam

I Jumped on...

...the hexie train finally.
In Birmingham I participated in a nice hexie workshop, at least half of it. On my way to the exibition center I took the train in the wrong direction so I saw some nice landscape of England while I was driving one and a half hours. I was so angry and sad that I would miss half of the workshop. But when I finally arrived, I could totally embrace the hexie feel and learn something. And here I am. Making little, tiny hexies. I will "hex" a nice pillow matching my kaleidoscope quilt, which is waiting patiently to be (hand-)quilted(?). Well, very ambitious plans, I know. I never handquilted anything and now it has to be the King Sized Quilt.
We will see if it is going to be finished this year, maybe I set christmas as a timeline.
Have a nice day everyone!
