Thank you!

Thank you so much to all of you who helped me decide on a border fabric!
The decision was finally made, and the borders are on, now I just need to baste it, quilt it and get the binding and hangingsleeve onto it.  This one will hang at the shop for a while (it seems most of my quilts go there first...)  I might have to bring one home again soon :-) As you might see I decided on the bottom right fabric.  It is a large print, but I think it looks kind of neat.
If you want to make a quilt like this the pattern is in te Square in a square Advancing on II book!  It was a lot of fun to sew, so this might not be the last one..... You know I LOVE star quilts!

I don't feel like basting this one just now, so I decided to make another tablerunner for the shop.  This one is from a pattern in "Quiltemagasinet" no 4/2010 and is by AnnAKa.  We have the fabrics at the shop, so I think a model will be just perfect.  We saw Ann's runner at the tradeshow last week, and it was just beautiful! I hope mine turns out just as good (or close).

And here is a shot of my two favorite machines.... I just got a new computer a few days ago, so now I don't have to fight the boys off the family computer anymore.... Yeeeyyyy! I am thrilled. Life (and blogging) will be so much easier now!

Ok, now it is time for my coffe and chocolate break..... Thank you for stopping by!
