Stitching Sunshine Härligt solsken

 It is summer and we have enjoyed some wonderful sunny days in Sweden and more sunny days will come.  A flower that is sunshine all over is of course the Sun Flower, a large and bold flower.
So I have made a table runner with Sun Flowers in a free appliqué style. I draw the flowers and then placed the petals  leaves in a free way. I used disappearing ninepatches as background for the flowers.

  It was so fun to make the flowers and the runner is now placed on my table.

And then I thought of a small quilt that I made two years ago for a challenge in the European Quilt Association with the theme Border. I thought  about the border between Sun and the Moon in the early morning when the moon  kisses the sun. The small wall quilt is still on tour in Europe and I hope that it will return to me next year. It has stopped somewhere in Europe caused by the Corona virus, as there are not any exhibitions this year.

Now hop over to my friends posts for this last day

I will thank lovely Carla for hosting this fun blog hop 

Enjoy the sunshine and I wish you all a lovely Summer

Color it Red

I love bright colors and one of my favorite is of course red. When Carol invited for a blogging with the red color in focus, I thought that this was for me. I have sewn several things in red and I will start with showing my latest thing, a small table cloth.

I have used some fabrics designed by Kaffe Fasset and I think the different red fabrics really glow.

Here is a runner with several shades of red. Also Kaffe Fassets fabrics.

And another table cloth with red  Kaffe Fasset fabrics

I have made some Japanese Ricebags with leftover blocks of course in red

And some mug rugs with birds of course

Just for fun some kissing fishes made as an challenge of the drunkard´s path

I will of course show my pillow with a bird with attitude

And as a woman who loves red here is my blouse made of several Kaffe Fasset fabrics in many different shades and pattern

Just hop over to look at the other blog hoppers of today  who like me love the color of red.

Thank you lovely Carol for hosting this fun blog hop. I'm looking forward for some more hopping.
