Old Magazines - new ideas...

The house has been sooo quilet lately. After all my summer-guests went home, I have been busy doing a lot of housework, cleaning,paiting every thing to make myself busy... In the end I found a lot of old magazines. Australian Patchwork and quilting...and they was just like new one. I found a lot of great ideas.. Jacke's stars.. I had to try to make some of my Debbie Mumms fabrics.. I have a plan, but I need 60 star- blocks. So this is a long time plan...
I also found this idea witch Magda are playing with...It is called Brodie's Quilt.In the magazine they have made it in 1930 reproduction print fabrics,but I had to use mine Little quilt fabrics.Now I'm wondering if fabrics who has been saved for several years waiting for The True Pattern and Idea are an UFO ? :-)
To day I got some great mailings, the Special Summer 2011 magazine of Quiltmania and block 2 of Pies and Tarts. And would you belive block 1 are done .... So now I have to start on block 2. 20 new circles to make... It is great to have somthing to do when fall are stealing upon us...
As you can see at the potos it is fall....
Rosebay willow herb or "elmørkje" ( ligth in dark) as I call it in my dialect. It is the flower of Hedmark county where I live...
A lonly Oxeye Daisy or "prestekrage" (Rectors collar) Flowers are so beautifull, but snow are too... Every season its charm .....
UPS.. did I forgett to show the great work of Magda,, LOL Tatam.. here it is.my own kind of Brodie's quilt. Look at all the Bonnet Girls.. I have decide it is a UFO, just lying quilet waiting to be born :-))

Untill next time take care and grab an UFO... Hugs :-)

Hmmm... mamma kaller også geitramsen for elmørkje, men jeg har egentlig aldri tenkt over hva det betyr :-) Ser ut til at du og Magda hygger dere - kjempefint teppe dere har fått ferdig! Og de stjerneblokkene er så søte - kommer til å bli nok et lekkert teppe, og kanskje du ser at bunken med Debbie Mumm-stoffer minker litt ;-) Bra jobba med Pies and Tartsblokkene!
