Out with the pink...

...and in with the prim and the darker colours...

I just love how you can change the whole house with just changing some quilts and some things...and in no time... :)
This is what I have been doing today... have capitulated...AUTUMN is here...colder weather...the COLDS...( better today...no fever...:) ...and in my search for a warmer climate..I needed to let the darker colours come in!!
So bye bye pink quilts...see you at spring... :)
...a little miniature basket quilt ...
...Mr. Scarecrow and the pumpkins...
...a Cheri Saffiote Payne quilt...
...and in my corner of the livingroom...
...my version of Stars... this one Louise, Eugenie from Norway and I swapped blocks on ...
...and this quilt...totally forgotten in between seasons... almost finished...and it´s a shame it´s not beeing finished...have a border to add and the quilting.
Louise and I swapped blocks on this one when I moved from Östersund...we made two and kept one for ourselves... And this quilt my ladies...have a workname... Louise DH is not so fond of plaids and stripes.... so when she had this one on their bedroom wall he thought it was the ugliest quilt of all...and he named it :
"The Quilt for the Blind People"
Oh...we do laugh a lot when we think of this...cause both Louise and I love it...
Btw...Louise is not finished with hers either... ;)
...I would love to have it machinequilted...so one day it might be ready for that...
Hope you are having a happy time out there...


  1. I guess I have to start getting my "blind people" quilt done! Thanks for reminding me....not! I know someone who would be very pleased if I got it done and put it in the livingroom!!! Or maybe not....
