Quiltgruppen Lappvärk

Yesterday evening I went to the second meeting of a new Swedish-speaking quilt group here in Vaasa. What a great group of women! I have to say 'hej' to them here, because one had discovered my blog and now everyone has the address!

Great Posti day today - The Calico Cat found some hedgehog fabric at a quilter's garage sale and was kind enough to send it to me!! She also included this book about using plaids after seeing my Bear Paws and knowing that I have another plaid and blue quilt in the works. Thanks so much, Amy!!

I was able to work a little more on my medallion this evening - all the geese are ready, but I need more hours in the day! Maybe tomorrow....

Being a part of a quilting group is one of the best parts of quilting! Even if it's on-line. The hedgehog fabric is too cute.

The hedghog fabric is so cute. Maybe you can do a cosmetic bag like the one I am soon going to post a tutorial on my blog.

Well that fabric is just adorable, and too apropos! Can't wait to see what you do with it. The book about plaids is great, too...lucky girl!

I'm beginning to think there is a fabric with just about anything on it! The hedgehogs are too cute...so what are the plans?!

Joining a group (like your quilting group) is a great way to work on languages. When I lived in Germany I joined a cooking group.

glad you enjoyed the quilting group.

The fabric with hedgehogs is cute. I haven't seen anything like that here in Australia.

Can't wait to see the next progress on your medallion quilt.

Ruth said...

Very cool fabric! Are you learning Swedish in addition to Finnish now?

The Calico Cat said...

FYI The fabrics are both pre-washed. Glad you like them.

I just had to laugh at the thought of a hedgehog saying hej... Maybe you should change your name to Hejhog?
