A grey day outside..

but while the weather is not so nice for being is however great weather to do some quilting!
And not feel guilty about it..;)
Well in my last post I promised to show you what else I have been working on, so here she goes..

In the past few weeks while not working on my Jane blocks, I have made this stack and whack kaleidoscope quilt. Fabric is a border print from Jinny Beyer. 

This is a sample for the workshop we have planned in September with our Bee.

A couple of weeks ago I bought this gorgeous fabric from Laurel Burch.

I will be doing another stack and whack with this one, but this time with 6 equilateral triangles forming hexagons from the book "One Block Wonders Cubed" from Maxine Rosenthal and Joy Pelzmann.

Can't wait to get started on this one!!
Love all those bright colors..

Also I have been busy quilting my entry for the OEQC competition in Veldhoven which is in October.
The theme for this year is "Berlin". 

these blocks represent The Wall, 
doing some straight lines here.
The famous picture of the defecting soldier taken during the early days of the Berlin Wall.

The little running man were free motion "thread sketched" over a layer of organza.
I've probably cut the organza too close to the stitching and while quilting the background that layer of organza has started to come loose. Will have to redo that once all the quilting has been done, probably even after the binding has been done.

Oh well..we learn as we go along!

If somebody has got a good tip on how to prevent this sort of thing in the future please let me know??

'Till next time!
Have a great weekend,

  1. Ha Esther. Wat mooi is die stack and whack quilt. En die nieuwe bonte stof, daar ben ik helemaal weg van. Prachtig. Je bent lekker druk met van alles zie ik. Leuk hoor. Ik ben ook met van alles bezig. Heb bruin quilt garen gevonden dus ga daa ook mee beginnen, e ven wachten tot de ergste warmte uit huis is.
    Ik ben je volger geworden dan kan ik zien wanneer je wat op je blog zet, ik ben nou wel erg laat met mijn commentaar.
