Yes, I confess, I am truly Gingham addicted ..... and I do not want to tell who is actually responsible for that..... LOL
Yesterday, I even baked my first Gingham
cupcakes.... do you see the brown one? smile
Be ready for the Gingham Blog Hop, coming
I am busy like a bee, some great hops will soon take place and there is a lot, really a lot to piece, sew, quilt and design. This is FUN, I love it!
Be prepared for the following hops organized by Mdm Samm in September!
Save Gingham, a really new challenge for me, though I never ever used Gingham fabrics before, but in the meantime, I bought quite a stash of these great fabrics !
Here a little sneak peak of my quilt using solid and gingham fabrics, still quilting it..... lots of work......
And the second hop taking place in September will be... don't RUSH.... we are still in time, so relax and continue sewing and quilting....
For this hop, I was one of the lucky birds to receive a bundle of the beautiful fabrics from STUDIO E FABRICS, thank you for sponsoring this hop, the fabrics are beautiful!
So, please be prepared for all the beautiful creations that will be shown at these hops!
To be honest, I am really glad the Worldcup will soon be over... only one week left, one top left and then I will have lots of pieces to quilt...
And here is the top for week Nr. 3 (please apologize my bad pictures, better ones will be taken when quilting is done....)
You can download the free pattern of this quilt here.
The quilt is really fun to sew, you can use jelly rolls and a solid background, makes it so powerful.
See you next week with top Nr. 4, the last Worldcup-Quilt for this time :-)
New week, new top, this is my personal challenge during the Soccer World Cup in Brazil...
My boys are playing soccer every free minute, and since Switzerland has won yesterday's game and entered the second round, I have the feeling to live in Brazil, my boys are wearing yellow/green or red/white and we have soccer balls in every corner, in- and outside the house....
And I finished my top no. 2 as well, up to know I am on track :-)
The pattern was also found in this magazine
The pattern is from Kimberly Jolly from Fat Quarter Shop, it is really easy sewing and the top was so fun to piece.
Now, I will go back to the sewing room and think about Top. Nr. 3, the fabrics have already been selected!
Have a wonderful week!
Soccer World Cup 2014
Every 4th year the same story as usual, with my DH which was an active soccer player (now he is training kiddies every week).
This year something special: all my 3 boys are soccer players, they absolutely love this sport and you can imagine which topics were discussed BEFORE the Word Cup....
And now, it is even worse... It is all about positions, goals, fouls etc.... from 6 a.m to nearly midnight.....
But I am not going to whine, no, because the best thing which is about this event: I can SEW & QUILT for hours without beeing disturbed all the time!
I always see the positive thing in a situation, and this is really positive. I never had so much time for me in the last months, sewing, quilting and drinking coffee!
So, I set myself a GOAL, but not a soccer goal, a quilting goal, LOL
to sew one top a week during the World Cup 2014
World Cup started last week, and I finished the first top 2 days ago. I took the pattern from the following magazine
Here is the post of Carey's Blog, she was the designer of this quilt
And here is my top, done with Northcott Stonehenge Winter Stone collection and KONA Orange.
Of course, it is not yet quilted, but my goal was to sew one top a week, not to quilt everything in a week. I will have enough time to quilt after Soccer World Cup .....
And, YES, I am on track, already busy sewing Top Nr. 2 for the second week of soccer-mania, LOL....
All I can say at the moment, the pattern of Nr. 2 is also one from the same magazine mentionned above....
