Last week I finished a quilt for my mother to celebrate her 80 years birthday. Most of the fabric I have dyed and some of it is bought. It has been a hard work, but also very funny and I have learned a lot sewing it. Here you can see pictures from the process a the finished quilt.

I am working with my EQ program and every time I think that it is funny. But to get the results made in stitching is something else. I can imagine that my computer products are sewed, but it doesn’t work so fast. Therefore I decided to try some of the blocks I made on my computer, and to use my home dyed fabrics. This is the result. I am satisfied with the blocks and the sewing, but I am not content with the brown ending of the quilt. I have learned that I must train free machine quilting and to use the special binding foot for my sewing machine.

I snapped this photo on one of our trips round to the summer house. The small river is a place we often stop to have a rest and trough the years this place has been place we remember. I saw the tree and its reflection in the water. There was a motif I could use for embroidery. I have decided to do more of this kind of sewing, because it can combine my photo interest and my sewing interest.
