A new quilt

First I want to tell you all: May Britt are at home and the surgery has gone well. I have heard from her both on the sms and the msn. She was tired but happy it was done. I think she will blog herself when she wake up. When I heard from her she had a funny way of spelling. But I can say to you all.....SHE WILL BE BACK :-)

To day it has been great day. almost "Indian summer" But I could notice the atumn are not fare away. The trees are turning yellow.
In the middle of the river some one had been playing and put advertise from a ice-cream in the water. May-be to cool his feet?
This week I have been playng with the "square in a square " ruler. It was so fun that the quilt turned out to be a single bed quilt. I manage to use 15 fabrics I didn't know why I bought . And a lot more for the backing and borders. Just great I think.It was hard work to quilt it on my sewing-machine but I manage to do it.
This are my best friend trying the quilt to see if it fit her.......and it did. ;)
This is how it looks on the back side. I have been able to use a lot of fabrics on this side too.
And at last.....My I introduse my new quilt. So now I can only wait for the winter. I can wrap my self in the quilt and just let it snow..... Lucky me.
I have been playing with colours and patterns, but I have only used the square in the square ruler. I think I have to use it more ,there are more pattern to make. But I think it has been a great start.
I have started on a new quilt too. We are some friends who are going to make this quilt. This is the first of six blocks. The name of the quilt are :Country Colletibles from The Chook Shed Pattern. It has been laying in my "just want to do" pile for at last two years.....but now I have started.
Now I just have to say: have a great day. I'm going to sit down and do the missing binding on my quilt and do the last quilting on the swap stitchery for ........ups that's a secret...
So take care and enjoy all your quilting......

Laila thanks for letting us know that May Britt is home and resting. Your quilt is just beautiful, so bright and happy. I think I need to check out this ruler you mentioned. Love the chook shed blocks, unfortunately they have gone out of business, about 2 years ago. Look forward to seeing all the blocks.

What a fun quilt! Not only will it be cuddly on the cold days of winter, but it will also brighten things up. It is cute both front and back!

The quilts are just wonderful. You are so talented to be able to make something so beautiful. I love them. My mom used to quilt but I never learned how. I sure wish I had. We are right in the middle of our summer here in the usa. Have a good day tomorrow. Happy quilting! connie from Texas

I think I'll have to get one of those rulers if that's the result - brilliant quilt. I also really love your applique block. I may try to find the pattern for that.

Your appliqué block looks promising, and the square in square quilt looks great, very cheery.

It's great that May is back home and on the mend. I love the applique quilt block and am sure that will be one gorgeous quilt.
