It`s history...the first Norwegian Quilt Festival.

Here they are : Kathrine + Siw + Åsne :-)
With a some helpers the three arranged this 
Quilt Festival with great success.

This is pic is taken after the dinner and before the presentation of the
foreign teachers. About 650 quilters from all over Norway came
to enjoy different work classes.

 Below  are some of the designers/teachers.
Lynette Anderson and Jo Morton.
Ma Masako from Japan with her daughter, who translated all
 Masako told us from Japaneese to English .

Sue Daley and Camille Roskelly enjoying a meal with Jennifer
from  Buggy Barn as well as the rep. for Riley fabrics.

Hurrah at last, my turn to be in Lynette`s work class for "the 
Hexagon Sewing Bag". I know many blog friends have made the bag.
 Wonderful to be part of  Lynette`s class once more :))
Proud as can be for showing you my hexies, will take some time 
to finish about 100 of them, but I love making these  :-)

Jo Morton showing her beautiful churn dash quilt.
My finish in the class will not make a big quilt for sure! Thinking
of making some more and ending up with a table runner one day.

Here is a lovely small raindeer, class on Sunday with Lynette,
"Christmas Friends" is a cushion. Great tool she used and
I think I now know how to use them for a perfect! turn-under applique.

What an enjoyable long weekend I have had! I am filled with lovely
 memories, taken about 155 pictures :)) If you pop over to May Britt at
Abyquilt you will enjoy 6 posts of super photos from this Festival.

Thanks for reading, Happy Sewing and all the best to you from Grethe xx

What fun! I'm so glad you were able to attend. I'd like to attend something like that one day. Now go get to work on those hexies.

The Norwegian quilt show appears to be a great success. Well done to the 3 organisers.
The appliqued reindeer is very cute. I do love the hexagons. They are addictive.

Dette skal jeg prøve å være med på neste år. Så fremt det blir noe quiltefestival og det ikke faller sammen med septemberturen min. Alltid koselig å treffe likesinnede.
