Finally a quilt post....

The sun was shining this morning, so I took the opportunity to take some pictures of a few finishes!
Way back in May I showed you this top finished. Well, Merete did the quilting with an all over pattern, and I really like how it turned out.

 Here you can see the details of the all over quilting pattern.  It has a nice summery feel to it I think.
I also showed pictures of the Dresden plates in progress earlier this summer.  The pillows are from Sherri's awesome book " A quilting life".  We have the book at the shop, and I was going to add a link to it, but realized I haven't added it to our webshop yet....First thing in the morning I need to do that!

I changed the back of the pillows from the pattern in the book by adding a zipper.
I really love our new pillows, and I see some more of these in my future- maybe some in nice warm oranges and browns for fall....

Well, Kristine is busy with her first week of school- this week is mostly socializing and getting to know each other.  She started blogging about her student life, and I love to read about her days.  If you want to you can pop over to her blog 19to25 and take a look!  I know she would love to have more visitors than her mom and family...



  1. Hi Anne Heidi
    Wow the quilt is just gorgeous, well done, enjoy it!
    I hope that Kristine enjoys blogging, & that it won't distract her from her studies, LOL
