1,2,3 pictures ... OK then, 5 pics of my TT....

HURRAH, FINISHED :
My Tiny Town was ready to be shown on the eve of Oct. 26. One of the quilt guilds I`m a member of had their meeting. Lovely to have lots of compliments as I am very pleased with the outcome of the quilt. I reduced the seize down 25% to be able to have it up on the wall. Love the colours of Martinique range and Fresh Cottons range both MODA. The pattern is from Bunny Hill Design,and it has been a BOM for a long time! Really a bit of a struggle to keep the dates,especially for somebody who are into more than one BOM. ...LOL...
I think the quilting looks super;lots of different quilt-patterns on the blocks. Merete is so good in choosing the best possible:-) I am glad a managed to let somebody else machine quilt it. Otherwise I most certainly would have used such a long,long time getting it ready.
You know,we are into bad weather these days;grey and misty,and the temp is getting colder day by day. My temp has been warmer and warmer!! But soon
"on top of the world" again. Can`t believe I missed the work class with the famous Norwegian "AnnAka" this weekend,but I did. Fortunately my good quilt buddy Berit has a full report from the class, so you can all read about it:-)
CU soon again! My aTisket aTasket is finished too and being quilted at Merete`s. I have been checking my Christmas "this and that". Many nice thing finished and unfinished.Lots to do and so much to be looking forward to:-)

OH,almost forgot: Yes,we`re prepared for Halloween - lots of sweet,small oranges as well as small cupcakes all ready in the hall. Last year just a few turned up(glad to say) This year for sure the two grand children already on their way.Happy Halloween for those who celebrate the night more than us and Happy Quilting to you all! ...... Some spooky creatures have just been,so I had to add the picture ................. :
Take Care,till next time:-)

Wow, Grethe, what an amazing quilt it has become!!!
For warmer weather and lots of sun, you have to be here. Really, we are having 18C temperatures. Outside without a coat.
Happy Halloween! Great picture!!!

Grethe.... your Tiny Town is one place I'd love to live! It's absolutely stunning. Wish I'd thought of reducing the pattern to wall hanging size. Clever you! Can't wait to see your Tisket a Tasket when it comes back from the quilter... bet it's gorgeous too.
Beware of those monsters tonight... you don't know which ones are kids and which are real!!

How gorgeous - you've done a fabulous job on your tiny town quilt - a great idea to reduce it to fit your spot. I agree with you - beautiful fabric and really effective quilting.

Your Tiny Town is awesome! I'd love to have a finished treasure like that for my wall. I guess I'd better get to sewing, huh?

Love your Tiny Town...and how you've made it smaller...it is fantastic...well done...

Wonderful work Grethe. You must be so pleased with it. Your quilter was so quick too. I have heard tales of some professional quilters taking months rather than weeks with some people's quilts in this country.

Teppet ditt ble kjempelekkert!

Your Tiny Town is beautiful!!!! What a good idea to scale it down to fit a wall. Much better to admire it when on a wall.
Hope you are getting better and looking after yourself.

I love your Tiny Town, the colours are so beautiful, it looks wonderful.

Berit said...

Ennelig ferdig, og den ble lekker. Det blir fint da det blir forminsket.
God helg
