Absolutely irresistable

I've just finished an art quilt which I'll send to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. I'm not allowd to show it yet but I'm quite satisfied and I hope it will be of interest.
Yesterday I got Kaffe Fassett fabrics I had ordered a couple of weeks ago. As a matter of fact I had decided not to buy any more KF fabrics until I had made at least one or two quilts from my stash. But what to do when you realize some colors you need are missing? And you find the color in so many lovely patterns? I'm so happy, I really love all these fabrics! But I wouldn't dare to tell a non-quilter that I'm going to use a rotary cutter to slice them!

Top is ready to be quilted

My small shimmering top is ready to be quilted. This is my second one made from Jenny Bowker's pattern Shimmering Triangels. It's made from Kaffe Fassett Collectives and my homedyed fabrics as alternates.

I had to make changes

I had some comments from FB friends and made some changes, I think this is a much better layout. Thank you all!

Shimmering layout

I made a new layout for another Shimmering Triangels quilt today, it will be a small one, 50" by 50". I use Kaffe Fassett Collective and my own homedyed fabrics as alternate blocks. This layout will be on my design wall until Saturday when "Söndagsgruppen" will stay for the weekend at Björkdala Gård

My new layout. Bad colors due to indoor light.
This weekend will also be the last days for the exhibition at  Galleri Wallhofs säteri. We have had bad weather, rather cold and rainy days but interested visitors each day. It has been very nice to show around and to answer all questions and explain how I've used the material.

Another exhibition

Uppsala konstnärsförening is a local party for non-professional artists using watercolor, acrylic or oil. Not many of them use textile. Me and my friend Anne joined this party in the beginning of this year and now there is a collective exhibition just outside Uppsala, at Wallhof's säteri, a place connected to Linnaeus. The gallery is in the old barn.

As I've shown most of my quilts here before I will not show any close-ups. The quilts were also shown in our collective exhibition i Lövstabruk, Konstkvilt - Art Quilt.

My next project is to make a quilt for the Festival of Quilts Competition in Birmingham 2015. I will attend the festival and have already made all the reservations, looking forward to it!
