BLOGGER'S QUILT FESTIVAL SPRING 2015

Dear friends,

once again it's Blogger's Quilt Festival again!!! And this year I'm very late, last minute. I've been visiting my sons and grandchildren in Switzerland and came back yesterday night. But I really wanted to participate this year because I have a quilt that I really love to present you.

I did it for my DH for a Christmas present and named it CAPPUCCINO. Here it is. 
I used scraps of fabric in neutral colors and added some glamour with a gold shiny fabric. The squares are 12". I quilted it by hand in circles starting in the center and going on with bigger and bigger circles.









 Don't forget to visit all the fabulous quilts presented at the Blogger's Quilt Festival.
Have fun. Hugs.

MESSENGER BAG

Hi dear friends,

in May I will travel to Switzerland to see my children and grandchildren. So I'm quite busy sewing. I made two baby quilts for my new grandchildren (one is already in the quilting process, the second one has to be sandwiched). But what I finished first is a messenger bag for me. 



Done out of a lovely alcantara fabric bought some years ago.
Next I'll finish quilting the first baby quilt. Pictures are coming very soon. 
Have a nice week. Hughs.

Drunkard's Path almost done

Hi friends,

and here is my Drunkard's Path table runner sewn together! I really love it, despite the fact that almost all circles don't match perfectly. I will probably hand quilt it.


It was fun and quick sewing all the circles. This tutorial was a great help. Sooo incredibly easy and fast. 
Thanks for visiting. Hugs.

New project - Drunkard's Path tablerunner

Hi dear friends,

it seems that this year I'm very inspired. I'm already on a new project! I spent some days looking at wonderful quilts done with the Drunkard's Path block. Then, I realized that I have templates for this block! Next question what to do and which fabrics to use. I decided for shades of purple. Then I made a little layout on paper. Here are all the pieces cut out ready for playing around on my design wall.


And here is the possibly final result:


Lots of curves to sew! Each block measures 3 1/2". Final measurements for the tablerunner will be 15"x30".
Have a good start in the new week.
Hugs. Pink
