30 FQ for a Buggy Barn quilt ..... and Happy Birthday to my DD :-)

My local quilt club NBQL is arranging a work class doing 
Buggy Barn`s "Spring Fever". 3 evenings over 4 weeks. Helle (no blog)
is our  teacher. She travels all over Norway teaching, anything you like,
an expert in stitching, turn-under, applique,ANY complicated pattern
 and now with us doing the Buggy Barn.
My choice of fabrics are a  mixed, but mainly "La Belle Fleur".
Some bought at The Bramble Patch shop when I visited the Festival of Quilts,
 some different bought at Kathrines Quiltestue, and a few old ones I manged
find in my boxes. 4 of the blocks nicely  framed here I keep trying to use
Picmonkey and sometimes it works fine. More blocks to show you later one day.
I have used 10 of the FQ, and then another 20 to be arranged into a nice
match. Still keep on changing around, and they are not in the same
 order as above any more. 
Helle and Nina here with some of the 14 quilt ladies in the class.  
 
 Oddbjørg and I went to Kathrine`s some time ago. We both badly
 needed some more fabrics! I found some more fabrics for the Spring Fever. We
had an enjoyable time at the quilt-shop as well as chatting over a cup of coffee.
 
AT LAST .....  HURRAY 
for dear daughter:  38 years today on the 14th of September. 
Siri (Vestnes)  has just changed her photo on FB,
 and I thought I should let you know!!
 
For me back to the next ten FQ to be cut in a very clever way,
busy ,busy and so enjoyable. Thanks for reading, enjoy your sewing :-)
 Think I need a nice cup of tea and a biscuit while once more checking
the mixed fabrics, from Grethe.

Gorgeous fabrics for your quilt!! Your flowers are very pretty. Aren't those Buggy Barn quilts clever with the stacking and sorting method? I hope your daughter has a lovely birthday :-)

Så kjekt med kurs med Helle! Men eg lurer på korleis de organiserer blokkene når det går over fem veker.. Fint mønster dette!

Oddbjørg said...

Fine blokker og fint stoff! Gleder meg til å se fortsettelsen.
Ja, det var veldig koselig å treffes.

Love the quilt pattern and your fabric choices. It's going to be the perfect pretty quilt to snuggle under and cheer you up on dark winter nights... Brrrrrrr!! Winter is on it's way! :o))
