Back again…

I am back here again after so many months! It is since May I wrote my last posting here in my blog, how fast time is passing!

In summer I stayed in Finland quite long time so I didn’t have time for quilts and sewing. I tried to find quilting fabrics and for my bad luck the shop I usually have bought lot of beautiful quilting fabrics was closed and instead of filling my suitcase with fabrics I brought Finnish coffee!!

During summer I sent my sewing machine for service. I have Janome and  I always send it to Athens to Janome  so it takes every time at least few weeks. And after the service it is so lovely to sew like with the new machine!

So I mentioned just few reasons why I am so long time without writing anything…

It is autumn but during this weekend here in Greece it has been very warm and nice weather. Today I finished my quilt I had started in April and I showed the fabrics in the last post.

This is full size quilt 80″ x 80″. I bought Archer pdf pattern by Colorgirl and wanted to use low volume fabrics I had. Because those grey-white srtips were difficult enough to match with each others I chose to make free small flower quilting to “break” the lines. It took quite long time to make machine quilting for so big quilt. For my next quilt I am not going to make the same quilting!

I had also few Liberty fabrics I wanted to put into this quilt.

I know I have to make more practice with my camera…but the quilt is big enough and the only place to hung it is ..volleyball net

  1. Welcome back,Anneli! I have always liked the Archer pattern. All those lovely low volume prints shine so nicely in this design. I am using more gray than white in my quilts lately. Your floral quilting is quite lovely as well. Thanks for sharing and linking up with TGIFF this week.
