2 finishes and a new BOM .....

Nice log cabin small quilt is up on the wall ... at last. Decided to finish it
 with a binding only, iso a wooden frame what the pattern suggested.
It is called "Log Cabin" (!) by Mountain Patchwork. , 8" square
 Gone about 5 years since I bought the kit at Lille Stasjon shop.

Could not resist putting my name down for a Christmas-quilt-to-be. It all
 started in  December last year, but I just joined this BOM a week ago.
  I have been sent all fabrics as well as patterns for the first 3 months :-)
soon March 7th when the shop send the next pattern.
Yes, I have started with the little pig there. Better close-up when block 1
is finished : ))The pattern is from AnnAKa Design. It is called
 "The Quiltlady`s Christmas Calender". I joined this BOM through
  the Lappedilla shop. Great, bound to be finished by December!

Below you see"December Night" table topper,
 pattern also by AnnAka Design, a kit from PolarQuilt shop.
Ready for use at any time, I think :))
 Below is a detail, the table topper is all done with machine.

I used Clover`s bias maker, 60 degree angel ruler and glued the bias on with
 Sue D`s best glue! AnnAKa has a very good detailed explinaions in her patterns.

On to MARCH month in some hours. Great month :-) with lots of exciting events
 to take place,small and bigger ! More later then! All the best, hope you enjoy
 the season you are in;  rain and sun are our daily experience where I live!

Jag håller med Dig att;
AnnAKa har mycket tydliga och bra mönster som är lätta att arbeta med.

What pretty projects! I use some self adhesive bias for very narrow stems as I am short of patience. :-)

The Christmas BOM looks like a lot of fun. Well done for making a project you've had waiting for 5 years.

Beautiful projects in this post Grethe. The log cabin quilt is very cute - the embroidery on it is a lovely touch. And I do like your new bom too - a pity the shop isn't closer to me!! Can you tell me more about the designer AnnAKa? Her patterns are gorgeous but I am guessing they written in Norwegian?
