Angel story... Challenge...

First of all...check out Lynette Andersons blog....she´s having a wonderful giveaway...this one you don´t want to miss!!

...Angel Story...
Ohh these angels...they have been a project going on way tooo long now...
I started mine at least 2 years ago...and have been working on them every summer... so has Marica...and we have been setting dates for finishing them...extended the deadline...and so on.. you get the point...and guess what they are STILL NOT FINISHED!!!
So when we had our last meeting...we decided to work on them... You know how it is to start a project you have put aside...you don´t remember how you had been thinking...and it get kind of tricky to start again...
And this time we set another deadline...knowing in my mind...that we could extend it this time too... ;)
Then May Britt made a comment on my blog and said that they were her bad conscience...so I challenged her to join us... and she did!!! And then Hanne, Anne Ida , Bjørg ( no blog) and Cathi wanted to join in!!
This is fantastic...more pressure ( I need that) ..so maybe this time I can´t put them away...and thats good...cause I really want them finished!!
I talked to Marica tonight and she will make a little "sign" for this Angelclub...
So if there are more people working on this one or will start it...join us...
This is the deal:
Top finished by 30th September...and quilt finished (quilted and binded) 1st of January 2009!!

So I will add this to my sidebar soon with links to all who joins...and I´d be happy if you mail me at kviltstina@gmail.com with your progress (and if you have no blog...we solve that someway)...so we all can help and support each other to finish this lovely quilt by the end of the year!! Haven´t thought of any prize ...but it could be possible there will be a drawing for the completed quilts... if I´m not to exhausted.... ;)
Good luck to all!!
...So I have started today...sat outside in the lovely weather ...and stitched one block finished...
...started another...
...and this is how far I have come...have all blocks finished...but not completed the stitchery on some... and I also have started to cut out the squares... so I´m a bit on the way!!

And for making this Challenge a challenge..I joined another Challenge...check out Peg´s blog!!
Finish Five by end of July!!
So wish me luck ...I can need that... ;)
I´m out of my mind...!!!

  7. I love the angels! This is going to be such a lovely quilt. Sometimes it does take others to nudge us along, but that is why we have friends, to nudge us.

  9. Hi Stina :-)

    You have to grant us beginners more than to the end of September, or you will see some breakdowns around here - hehehe - like a poor diet.
    Well - let's see where the road leads, and have fun together :-)

  10. I can't start my angel quilt probably till September, as I need to get the book and will be in America till the end of August at my parents place, so not sure I can get started there (maybe though!). I will be trying to do two quilts though, one for mom and one for me! Eek!!

  14. Hey Stina! Good luck with your Angel quilt! I bought the book a coupld of years ago and tho I've made small projects with some of the stitcheries, I haven't tackled the full quilt yet - too much on my "To Do" list, so I'll watch yours grow for now and maybe further down the track I'll get going on mine!! Oh! Loved your pinwheel quilt you gave away - what a great way to use up leftovers!! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)

  19. Hi Stina! I want to join in but have only just decided and found some fabric two days ago. I would like to have longer to complete the top but will stick with your final deadline for the whole quilt to be finished. Can you let me know if this is ok before I post the Angels Story picture on my blog?
    Thanks ever so much,
    Bec xxx

  29. I started my An Angels Story Quilt in November 2011. now
    missing three angels to embroider. I put borders on 5 and
    I finished the Block A. Work them only at night, watching TV.
    I want to be part of the Club, but I have no blog ...
    Hugs to all.
