Turnabout...

Hi there...
Still here... 
 More  colds have been going around here.. 
Viktor mostly this time... 
Hope for some change soon....
Getting pretty tired of  being sick...
So I am desperately looking for signs of spring everywhere.. and this is what 
was happening on my little street today!!
So much snow on the streets that they are too narrow
so snow has to go... before it starts to melt....
And this is what they have come up with..
never seen it before..
Spring is coming..... :o)

And still some are working on my hearts...
Julie at JulieKQuilts
did this cute wallhanging... 
Thanks for showing Julie... :o)
Sewing have been done... 
in between everything...
Not the things I had hoped for ... but I started My Schnibble 
for this month

"Roundabout"

I decided to work with a charmpack and one Jelly roll..
So I started with enlarging the pattern so I could use the strips 
in the Jelly Roll...

Edit:
Fabric line = Porcelaine

But when progress came along I knew I had to make the quilt a little bit different...
Larger YES...
wanted a lap quilt for me..
Just for me!!!

The fabrics were to busy to be together.. so I added sashings...
and used the solid strips in the Jelly cut in to squares in between....
So this is the result for my Roundabout
that became a

"Turnabout"
Sometimes a girl has to do what ever pleases her... :o)
So I am a little bit sorry for not sticking to the pattern... 
but happy that I didn´t ...:o)

This weekend was to be spent with my quiltingfriends
"Kviltarna"
but it seems like I won´t be able to go..
Lars is working extra... 
and Viktor is sick... 
Well.. maybe it will all solve.. haven´t quite given up just yet...
Otherwise  I will be here by my sewing machine this weekend!!
See you!!

OOOpss..
almost forgot...

Over and out from a still very wintry 
Sweden!

  8. Hi Stina, sorry about all the bugs going around your house... humm. you are right: not a good sign of Spring if the Snow-plows are in full force on your street! But I think your turnabout quilt is LOVELY. Soft and cuddle and just right!

  11. Now that is some snow removal.
    Hope Viktor gets well soon and everything works out to allow you sewing time with friends. Your Schnibble is lovely. I'm not very good at sticking to a pattern so I'm glad you were rebelious too. It worked out great!

  12. OMGosh! You've still got BIG snow! We have no snow and spring weather...I'm sending it your way right this minute so you can open those windows and clear the cold bugs out of the house. Good that you maintain your sense of humor and creativity. Love what you did with Roundabout. Isn't Julies quilt wonderful?! So many talented quilters in this world. :-D

  13. Stina, I don't know that I could live with all that snow, but it all comes down to where you were raised. Love you lap quilt, it turned out great and useful.
    Your just going to have to come to all our blogs and set them up for us.

  14. LOVE that turnabout quilt Stina! It's very cool! And Holy Cow! You KNOW you have a lot of snow when they have to remove it like that! I saw something very similar a million years ago when we were visiting Moscow in a February -- but I've never seen it again since. Until now!

    Håper du kommer deg avgårde til treff; slike sammenkomster er jo kjempetrivelige.

  27. Oh WOW Stina ... I LOVE what you did with your Schnibble. I have trouble following instructions exactly too ... but nice to individualise our projects a bit I think.
    Hope you all get over your colds soon ... I'm going for my swine flu vaccination on Monday. Don't want another dose of that this year!!

    PS Those snow machines look awesome. You must be so ready for Spring!

  28. The snow is finally starting to melt down here. I am so tired of the winter, I want spring and summer.
    Love your Scnibbles quilt and understand why it became a turnabout, think those blocks are addictive :)
    Keep your feet warm and hope you feel better soon. Got a nasty cold myself now and will stay inside sewing whole easter.
