Thank goodness it's finished Friday

Hello and welcome to:



I am very happy to host this finished Friday. We recently had an addition to the family. Just to clarify not our own, but DH niece gave birth to a lovely baby girl whom she and her husband named Clio.



Like I needed a reason to make a quilt ;). This Quilt has actually been done for a while, but I waited to share it with you because I wanted to add her name, which the parents kept a secret. 

When I first heard that DHN was having a girl I knew that I was going to make her this quilt. I made it using Amy Butlers fabric line Lark. DHN didn't seem to be the pinky girl type of mum and I love that Lark is feminin without being pink.


 As backing fabric I used an Ikea print, for batting 100%cotton and I used Kona snow for the binding.



I quilted organic circles, because I have been wanting to try them for such a long time. I started off very close together in the middle, but as I moved out I made them wider and wider. I really enjoyed the process and will no doubt use this technic more in the future.

So what do you want to share with us today?

Please link up your finish here and link back in your post to the party. Then enjoy and spread some comment love.

till next time,
Iris

Et Doemsche

Earlier this year Dorthe created a freebie on her blog called 'Et Doemsche'.  Anfang des Jahres hat Dorther ein Freebie auf Ihrem Blog freigegeben namens 'Et Domesche'


Since then it has featured many times (here, here, or here) so we thought it would be a good idea to offer it as a class.
Seitdem ist mehrmals drüber geschrieben worden (hier, hier oder hier) also dachten wir das es vielleicht eine gute Idee waere es auch als Kurs anzubieten.



Thursday 15th September from 19:00-22:00 OR Saturday 17th September from 10:00-13:00 you have the opportunity to sew this cute pillow.
Am Donnerstag 15.September von 19:00-22:00 oder Samstag 17. September gibt es die Gelegenheit um zusammen dieses süße Kissen zu nähen.


It is a paper piecing pattern and we will finish it of with a hidden Zipper. The finished since will be around 35 x 35 cm. At the moment there are still a few places available, but there is only a limited amount of participants I can take. Courses take place at Lalala patchwork quilting and more in Bensberg.
Es ist ein Schnittmuster wobei man AUF dem Papier nähst. Das ganze wird fertig gestellt mit ein Reissverschluss auf der Rückseite des Kissens. Momentan gibt es noch ein Par Plätze zur Verfügung. Der Kurs findet statt in Lalala Patchwork Quitling and more in Bensberg.

Hope to see you there,
Iris
