Berri Sue Gaudet from BAREROOTS is visiting Oslo,Norway :-)

Through Kathrines Quiltestue I put my name down to attend a course with the American designer of Bareroots. Lots of different projects to choose from,one for each day. We were 28 all together sewing like made for two days! Barri was very sweet and patient with us. Somebody were there for all the 4 days,making Christmas projects in felt and wool as well. We had such a great time. New patterns,ever so nice fabrics from Katherine`s shop to be tempted by,not to mention the great lunch that Kathrine made for us.
Lovely,lovely:-) And I also now know the story about the Barerooths name: in very short version -roots growing continuous from nothing-.
My little bag in blue rose fabric there is ready to be used. I definitely struggled a bit,but it was worth it.

We were so lucky as Berri showed us lots of her new and old quilts. As the shop had brought all her patterns,we could just dream of living till 200 to make them all!!!

As always when quilters meet,we had lots of fun.
We just broke up for lunch when I managed to get somebody to use my camera:

See the difference of the two pictures??
On the first one I to be on tiptoe to put an inch or two on my heights,while Barri Sue made some atheletic movements with her knees,so we are of the same heights!!
Well,the last one is the right one......

Yes,lots of bloggers have recommended this book. Such a lot of lovely projects to do.
