HAPPY NEW YEAR

This was a very, very cold week and it seems that tonight will be just the same. That means we won´t stay very long outside at 24.00 to fire and watch the fire works!

My parents spent some days at our place and my mother brought along her last works to show me.

I thought it would be the right thing to share these nice works with you to give you inspiration for next year.




The apple core quilt is hand-sewed, hand- appliquéd and hand-quilted. I love the colour combination.




The second quilt is machine-sewed and is being hand-quilted. My mother was inspired by a pattern at Quiltville.
I wish you a very happy new year and a lot of finished works (wether they are sewed, quilted or knitted)

Your mother does nice pieceworks. The diamond-in-square-string pattern inspired me also.
I wish you a happy new year.

Happy New Year! What beautiful quilts your mom has created, that apple core is quite a lovely piece, and to think she did it all by hand, amazing!
