Blue, Blå, Bleu, Blau, Sininen, Albastru

I spent yesterday turning my entire kitchen blue - after picking lingonberries and blueberries in Sundom, I made seven jars of blueberry jam and nine jars of skogbär (forest berry) jam. I think this is the last jam making session of the year, but I'm left with liters and liters of lingon. I'll freeze most of them, but if you have good lingon syrup or chutney recipes (or good cranberry syrup or chutney recipes), please send them my way!

Sticking to the blue theme, I finished up the quilt for my cousin's little one. The second quilt I've made for a baby named Paul this year! I even made a label for this quilt - inspired by the label requirement of the doll quilt swap. (Thanks many times over to Amy for the hedgehog fabric!) The finished quilt is 46"x46".

Oh yum. Forget the recipes - I'm coming to eat it!

Well done on finishing that gorgeous quilt for your cousin. And I do love the label. :)

The blue quilt is perfect for a boy. The jams look very appetising.

The quilt is just adorable. The jam looks good also. Have you tried to google for the recipes you want?

Just eat the berries, I think that is the best way to use them ;) Your quilt is so beautiful and the label is perfect for you.

The jam sounds yummy and the blue quilt is great. I have never heard of forest berries. Are they wild berries?

The quilt is gorgeous - you have had a lot of finishes lately. The jam sounds good too, I saw lygonberry jam at Ikea. I;ve never tasted it.

I like it very much. Albastru is very nice for a little boy.
