Nordika

I am back to sewing!  I have had a few very busy weeks.  With all of the funerals and visits and then throw in my birthday on Monday, it's been busy.  I have celebrated now for 6 days straight.  I have some of the best friends in the world.  I am one lucky girl.  Ok, back to sewing.

I bought a fat quarter bundle of Nordika by Jeni Baker last year.  They had fabric launch party for her at my local quilt store and I went to check it out.  The colors are so rich and the fabric is so soft I just had to have some.  So I bought a bundle and the next day I had an email that I had won a bundle too!


I found a pattern in a British magazine called Popular Quilting.  The pattern is called Helsinki Square Dance and was easy to cut and sew.  It has over 400 pieces in it and measures 53x72.  I added the white and grey.

I am going to back it in the grey, black and white circles.  Not sure of the binding yet.

Tonight was the launch party for Jeni's new line-Dreamin' Vintage.
It totally looks like vintage sheets.  Tonight she was telling us about the daisies and how she photographed them in Madison and then computerized them.  So the daisies you see are Madison grown! I love that.  I bought a few fat quarters to make some small projects with.  This fabric is so soft!

Other than that I have made a few little coin purses.  I do have some aprons on my list.  And, when I get the 3 back from my long-armer I will have to bind them.  But other than that I don't have anything big on my list.  There are a few quilts I would like to try but I think I am going to try to finish some small things first.  I will update my 'to finish' list soon.
Blessings
Amy
