A tiny quilt.


About two weeks ago, a festival was held a few hundred meters away from our house. I checked the local newspaper, and found out when Chris Cornell was going on stage. Then I sat down by my cutting mat and sewing machine, opened the window and started making this tiny, red quilt while listening to The Master of Grunge (who is still rather good looking, close to 45)
I had already cut tiny scraps into 1,5" squares, and started sewing 4 of them together, forming a new square. Then I cut it again to make it even smaller. They're not even an inch now!
The whole quilt is about the same size as a LP-cover, or 30 cm. Perfect for a christmas nightstand!
I have fallen completely in love with the swirly quilting, I've used it two times in a row now. It's so much fun, and I love the look of it. I think it really adds a new layer to a simple quilt like this one.
I'm going to make another quilt in the same colors, but not the same pattern. After all, I still have hundreds of 1,5" squares in red and pink I need to use..
I might add that even if this is a christmas quilt, I haven't used any christmas fabrics. None of that typical Santa/gold/dark green/mistletoe stuff.

Nydelig quilt du har laga!

Var så heldig å være i Rensåsen og fikk med mæ Chris Cornell live! Og du vær forsiktig når du skriver om alder... Høres nesten ut som om at du synes 45 er gammelt!!! *ha ha*

Klem fra en meget ung Bodøværing på snart 42 :)

Hei og takk for hilsen i bloggen min. Var innom din "gamle" blogg, og må bare si at den hvite løperen er helt nydelig. Den hadde nok passet hos meg og. Jeg har samme bordet :o)Ja du har rett med de lyse gardinene. Ikke akkurat noe å gå vinteren i møte med, men planen er at de skal få et noe mørkere selskap etterhvert.
Du er virkelig flink til å sy. Jeg kommer nok innom igjen. Fortsatt god helg!
