This is probably the year where I am making a lot of placemats. I found the pattern the Norwegian designer Annaka publised in a Norwegian quilt magasin a few years ago and made this 8 placemats for our cottage up in Hemsedal.

Then I decided to make some for my brother as well. Saturday my husband and I were invited for a supper and to stay over night. So they got 6 of the same. On Sunday morning they were used for the first time when we had our breakfast.

X-block ruler



One Friday some weeks ago Sølvi Alfnes challenged us to start using rulers we still hadn’t used. I decided to use my X-block ruler. I watched some videos on YouToube so I knew how to use it. I picked out some maritime fabrics from my stash and started. I was a bit scared but after a while I felt quite comfortable in using it. These placemats were the result of my first attemt.

I was quite happy with them I twisted the blocks and put them together in different ways. Here are four of them.


My last works


The red and white one was started during the Christmas holiday. XX-B503972B-1319488-1280-100I found a pattern on the internet and decided to make it. I picked out the fabrics and everything else I needed for sewing this during our holiday. It was easy to make but when I was nearly done I didn’t have a fabric for the frame. Luckily I was helped by a quilting friend in my neighbourhood. So I finished it but didn’t had the curriage to machine quilt it at once. Some weeks ago I got the spirit and it was very quickly done.
