Welcome to the show....

 at Majorsbostället

Nordanå, Skellefteå
5-11 July 2010

Seven days filled with lots of visitors and lovely Swedish Summer weather made my week to something to remember...

I just love this building.. it couldnt have been any better anywhere... 
Old.. from 1700... with handpainted walls....and the surroundings with old buildings...
I think it made my quilts look  even better than they are... 

One thing I was most nervous about was the hanging... since the quilts was not to touch the walls.... pheeww... a lot of thinking here.. but we made it ... husband and I... 
It took us almost 8 hours... and all I can say I was happy to have my pins and needles and rags with me...:o)

 So welcome Friends....
Lets go inside....

This is from the Entrance...where Guy and I shared a little space...

Made a little "Kviltstina" sign to hang outside my rooms....

October Schnibble "Cindy Lou Who" draped on a chair ...made in lovely French General fabrics...
One old quilt "Bearpaw" made as a sample for a class.... Pattern from a book called Little Quilts....

From here you could go just straight forward to my show or to the left to visit Guy...
and I think we will do so.... :o)

Guy Nordström 
have made the most wonderful table cloths and curtains... 
Just beautiful work...
Made in linen and cotton and with mix of the two...

I almost came home with a lovely pair of curtains...
 just sorry they were a bit short... :o( 

Enjoy the pictures....

Wasn´t this just amazing... 
and believe me.. his work is delicate and so PRETTY!!!

And then we can go back and visit me... 
The first room... 
to the right from the entrance...I hung 
"Laila´s Garden"
Pattern made by Gail Pan ... 
 and what a lovely memory to have since I met her personally when I went to Trondheim to take a class with her and Leanne Beasley...

Mostly made in fabrics from my stash.... 
Lecien ...Durham and Buggy Barn.. and who knows what else there is mixed in this one... 

Next to it... 
A little quilt "Little Things"made in a class with Leanne Beasley 

Both sad and happy  ... because I sold this one... as a wedding gift ... to a couple living in the USA...hope they will love it ... :o)

Next quilt is a quilt I think you all will remember... 
I had it as my background picture on my blog before....

My Triangle Quilt 
made in a class with Gill Turley from Great Britain...

Still remember this class with so much joy... and Gill was a fantastic teacher!!!
Finally the quilt got its buttons I intended to add all the time...
It was about time.. don't you think...:o)

This was the first corner from the show...

and I think it will be all for today...:o)

Hope you enjoyed it.. and hope you will be back to see some more....
hopefully tomorrow....

See you later....

    Precis vad man drömmer om att kunna skapa.Mjuka,sköna färger.
    Little Quilts-kvilten är ju du från Östersundstiden eller hur? Numera har du en pastelligare färgskala som är mer som du-söt och gullig.Tack för dessa bilder. Ser fram emot vad du visar i nästa rum.
    Kram Louise D
