WIP Wednesday

So it's been a few weeks since I last posted a WIP Wednesday. I haven't had as much time to sew as I would wish for. Baby girl has decided to be difficult to get to sleep at night. I am hoping it will be a quickly passing phase...
Det er et par uker siden jeg sist skrev et WIP Wednesday-innlegg. Jeg har ikke hatt så mye tid til å sy som jeg skulle ønske. Lillejenta har bestemt seg for å være vanskelig å legge om kvelden. Håper det er er kortvarig fase...

Completed Projects/Ferdige prosjekter

Not much to brag about here, just a couple small items...
Ikke mye å skryte av her, bare et par småsaker...

Ongoing Projects/Løpende prosjekter

Not much progress - a few more blocks for my Dear Jane quilte are completed. I just received the second block for the Mystery Block of the Month in the mail today. Mail is slow from Texas to Norway!
Ikke mye fremgang - noen flere ruter for Dear Jane er ferdige. Jeg fikk akkurat den andre pakken for Mystery Block of the Month i posten i dag. Posten tar lang tid fra Texas til Norge!

Mystery Block of the Month
Although I didn't get to the second block yet, I did start making some hexies using the mini charm pack I got with the first package. It will probably become a cushion. I need more fabric to finish this project, so it won't be completed until I have enough scraps from the monthly blocks.
Selv om jeg ikke har lagd den andre ruten ennå, har jeg begynt å lage noen sekskanter med mini-charmpacken jeg fikk første måned. Det vil nok bli en pute. Jeg trenger mer stoff til dette, så den blir ikke ferdig før jeg har nok stoffrester fra de månedlige pakkene.

New Projects/Nye prosjekter

Cherry Blossom Quilt
I realized both the quilts I am working on are long-term projects with completion dates next year! So I "needed" to start a quilt that I could get done quicker. I decided to make the Cherry Blossom quilt from the book "With Fabric and Thread" using California Girl from Moda. I have the colored fabric pieces cut and just need to cut the background fabric to get started. I am excited about this quilt - I think the colors will be perfect for spring, summer and fall and I can't wait to snuggle up under it on the couch!
Siden begge quiltene jeg jobber på er langtidsprosjekter, "måtte" jeg starte på ett som kunne bli ferdig raskere. Jeg bestemte meg for å bruke et mønster fra boken "With Fabric and Thread" og stoffet California Girl fra Moda. Så langt har jeg bare begynt å klippe stoffet. Jeg syns fargene passer så fint til både vår, sommer og høst og jeg gleder meg til å kose meg under teppet på sofaen i høst!

Vintage Holiday Quilt Along
I am joining Heidi at Fabric Mutt for the Vintage Holiday Quilt Along and I have selected my fabrics - a layer cake of Alpine Wonderland from Riley Blake, plus some extras from my stash to fill in the extras. Although the sewing doesn't commence until August I have started cutting the fabric for the blocks, because I want to make something with the scraps and needed to know what I would have left.
Jeg skal bli med på en Vintage Holiday Quilt Along med Heidi hos Fabric Mutt. Jeg har valgt ut stoffene og selv om syingen ikke begynner før august, har jeg begynt å klippe ut delene. Jeg vil lage noe med restene og må vite hva jeg har til overs.

Christmas in July/Jul i juli
There are a few Christmas in July events going on and with the scraps from my Vintage Holiday quilt, I hope to make a couple paper pieced cushions using this tutorial from Sew Festive Handmake and this tutorial from Don't Call me Betsy. Hope I get them done in July!
Det er noen Jul i Juli grupper i gang og med restene fra mitt Vintage Holiday quilt håper jeg å lage noen puter i papirsøm. Håper jeg blir ferdig med de i juli!

I am linking up today with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Head on over and see what other creatives are up to!
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing how the Cherry Blossom quilt comes together. I really like that design and your fabric choices will certainly be very summery

  2. You have so many beautiful projects in the works! Love your elephant pouch!

  3. Your elephant pouch is awesome!! I want to do the vintage Christmas quilt-along too. Alpine Village is SO cute. I would love to copy you, but I guess I should choose fabric already in my stash...

  4. That is cutest iPad cover ever and I adore that elephant pouch! The fabric for your Vintage Holiday quilt makes me happy! Thank you for linking up to WIP Wednesday!

  5. Love the elephant! Your Jane blocks look fantastic. I'm pretty excited because I'm just about to the half-way point on mine. And yeah - it's such a long-term project, with a lot of hand-stitching, too, that you really need other projects to work on while doing it. :)

  6. Wow! All your projects look great!

  7. I think your Ipad is worth bragging about with those perfect HST :) Gorgeous stuff!
