I went to the "The National Quilt Happening" in Belgium last Thursday, it was fun.
I saw some beautiful quilts and one Dear Jane quilt done by Fernande Authuys. 
To my surprise there were some small quilts from EQA (European Quilt Association) 
9 from each country. 

I took some pictures:





The Netherlands (This one I liked very much)




All of them very pretty. 

And of course I bought  some beautiful fabrics

I needed some brown for my planned tree quilt.

Now I'm off to play some golf, it is such a fine weather today.

Until next time

Happy stitching



Farmhouse Quilt

Now the strips have turned into houses, 
I'm machine appliqué this quilt with raw ends.
It is fun but I wonder how it will last.
Can anyone tell me?
I use "Lite Steam-A-Seam2".
12 houses are done, 
now I will have to work on the blocks in between.

My third block for "Sweet Nostalgia" was September block "Back to School".

I want to share with you a link to Edyta's video,
where she shows her fantastic quilt small/big bag
Have a look at this:

You can find the pattern at her blog if you scroll down.

Until next time
Happy stitching


Have been making strips from fabrics I ordered from
 Patsy Thompson long time ago.

When I got this "Friendship Strips & Scraps" book by Edyta Sitar 
I found an opportunity to use that fabric.
I'm going to do this quilt on the cover. 
Actually I would like to do every single one in that book. 
The book is just great.

I have all hers books. 

She recommended Aurifil threads, so I ordered a kit,
to give it a try, and what a difference.
I have been having problems with what I thought was my sewing machine,
but it turned out to be the thread I was using.

This is what I'm knitting at the moment, a cardigan for my son.
Lovely Italian yarn from Lana Grossa,
 Merino Wool / Baby Alpaca / Cashmere. 
So soft and nice to work with.

I tried to get dye from that seaweed I told you about, but without success,
will keep trying.  
This yarn was dyed with dye I made from birch and mint.

Have also done some DJ blocks.

Thank you for stopping by, I would love to see what you are doing.

Until next time,
happy stitching.
