Bowls with Borders / Skålar med kant

Hi
It is day 8 and  my day to show my bowls.
 I am Britt-Inger from Malmö, in the south of Sweden, very close to the Danish capital Copenhagen. I can see the wonderful bridge between Sweden and Denmark from my balcony and windows.
 I am newly retired and could have fun all my time with sewing, but in fact there are many other things to enjoy during retirement. But I must admit that my sewing time take many hours of my free time. The quilt bug came flying over me and bit me very hard for about twelve years ago and since then there have been many quilted things coming from me.
The quilting is not a big thing in Sweden among  the other hobbies, but for me and my quilting friends  it is a very big thing, as we are a very addicted circle of ladies.
I am not so fond of paper piecing but I have several times visited Regina´s site and looked at her wonderful patterns. When this blog hop came Bowls with Borders I couldn´t resist signing up. And it has been sew fun, collecting fabric for the project and sewing it.
Here is my plastic bin from Ikea, where I have some tiny scraps for small quilting projects
Jag deltar i en blog hop, Skålar med bård, där vi är 164 damer och en herre!! som syr efter  Regina Grewes  Bowls with Borders. Och idag är det min dag att visa vad jag har sytt
A plastic bin with scraps /Ikea låda med smårester av tyg

 But it is so boring to tear off the paper and these tiny bits of paper have a fancy to choose the every other place than  the wastebasket.
I started with this table runner or wall quilt and as you could see I had some problems to stop sewing, there are 28 bowls in this quilt. And as I am a great fan of Kaffe Fasset, I have choosen some fabric of his design in both the bowls and the borders. The quilt is quilted by machine and with some FMQ also.
Min första quilt har 28 skålar staplade i varandra, det var jättesvårt att sluta leka med tygerna. Men sedan kommer det trista, att ta bort alla de små bitarna papper, som lägger sig överallt, utom i papperskorgen. Jag har maskinkviltat och gjort lite frihandsquilting utanför skålarna.
My first Bowls / Min första Skålar


Close /Nära


As I told you, it was very hard for me to stop and I then decided to make another quilt. I did this layout as a cupboard with three shelves and with nine stacks of bowls. And boy what fun I have had to choose fabric for these stacks. I am also a great fan of fabric designed by Laurel Burch and therefore some of the bowls have her cats and dogs. I am not a cat fan, I like cats, but I love dogs even if I am not an dog owner. As my pets are cockaties , I have then choosen to decorate some of the stacks with birds and flowers, the birds and flowers  are from my own drawing. The quilt is machine quilted and the appliqué is made by machine through all  the three layers.
The best thing with these two quilts is that every piece came from my stash and collection of scraps.
Isn´t that good to have everything at home and not buying fabric.
Jag hade väldigt svårt att sluta och var därför tvungen att påbörja ett nytt projekt. Det fick bli en quilt med ett skåp med hyllor, där det finns nio staplar med skålar i olika höjd. Och sedan var jag ju tvungen att applicera dit mina favoritdjur fåglar och några blommor fick också plats. Applikationerna har jag gjort samtidigt med kviltningen, och kvilten är kviltad på maskin.
My second Bowls with Borders 





 Thank you Madame Samm for hosting this blog hop and the amazing and heavy job that you have done and Carol being the cheer leader and Regina for giving us the pattern to make our different versions of this fun pattern.
Det är Madame Samm på Sew We Quilt som organiserat denna blog hop och Carol på Just let me quilt
 som hållit ordning på truppen och Regina Grewe  som gett oss mönstret att sy efter.
 I have now showed you my Bowls with Borders  and here are the others today

Nu har jag visat mina skålar och här är de andra i dag

    SvaraRadera
  67. Wow! You did an amazing job with this challenge! I don't like the paper piecing myself because of tearing the paper out either but that's the only reason. I love the birds, flowers and all the other things you drew and added. It's just wonderful! I can tell youn had fun with this! Do you have problems getting quilting fabrics where you are since quilting isn't that big of a thing there?

    SvaraRadera
