Another Charity Quilt


My local hospital is always in need of charity quilts for the children's ward. Before summer I made this quilts from leftover novelty prints and additional black solid squares. There is a lot to look at in the novelty prints, and the solid gives a nice rest for the eyes.


The fabrics in the quilt is kind of busy so I chose to quilt it with a simple crosshatch design in brick red with the walking foot. The quilt will be a good comfort for a sick child in a difficult time.

Now I have made 18 charity quilts for the hospital, and 4 this far in 2017. My goal of 6 by the end of the year is in reach!

Keep on quilting!

The Latest Tattoo Testing

During the last few months I have tested three more tattoo patterns for Happy Sew Lucky. The patterns are all foundation paper piecing, and I have improved my skills enormously since I started working with them.


The first one is GRACE. I wanted to have a white swan, so I chose a light green background. I altered the pattern a little bit by letting the swan swim in a pond.


TRUTH is strong and make you stop and follow your heart.


MOXIE shows force of character, determination or nerve.

I am looking forward to the next pattern from Berene of Happy Sew Lucky!

Keep on quilting!
