What a weekend!!!!

This was a very much needed weekend...
filled with a lot of fun...
first of all my birthday... with so many birthday wishes from you!!!
Thankyou so much!!! :)
And to top that day... what a lucky day...I did win two giveaways!!!
One here and one here...
GOSH...two wonderful giveaways!!!
And I was the lucky one on both of them... >:D<>
For the swap we decided to sew six or eight blocks each in colours/patterns of our choice ...
and this is my green Tin Man blocks...
...think I will add sashing in cream and a corner square in some colour between the blocks... will have to play a little bit more with them...
Showed Viktor the blocks tonight..and he loved all the green guys!!!
So you did a fantastic work on the blocks!!
Thankyou!!!! :)

And this is Maricas blocks...
...she chose Churndash blocks...and wow this quilt is going to be just wonderful...
I definetly need to make a churndash quilt...
love these blocks... :)

And this is Cici´s blocks...
...and dont you just love these blocks...the pattern is great!!!

And Lotta she gave us all a challenge...to work with some jewel fabrics...
but I think Cicis blocks were more challenging for me... black and white... never wear and almost never use them... the jewel ones I like to dress in...sooo they were a little bit easier...
This is her blocks...
... A Vitamin Kick!!!

The only block´s missing was Kristina´s... will be fun to see them later...

Thankyou girls for a wonderful swap!!!
And as if this wasn´t enough...
Lotta made us all a surprise...
She made us all a Blockholder to keep all the blocks organized during the swap...
and I was the last one to know since I was last on the list... :)
What a surprise!!!This is my Blockholder/keeper... :)
Thankyou so much Lotta!!!

Think this was the most "quiet" quiltweekend ever... :)
Lottas machine was at the Machinedoctor´s...so she handsewed , I stitched all the time... and it was just Maricas machine that was buzzing...
Hmmm...think I will post these photos later...or maybe Marica will post some...
anyway...
hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend...
I sure did!!! :)
Quiltweekends are the BEST!!!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I love all your blocks, but I think I prefer Maricas churn dash blocks. That is one block I want to make a scrap quilt of.
