The Queen Heart Quilt

A huge quilt is finished, measuring approx 2,7* 2,3 m.
The heart block pattern you can find here on my blog.
The quilt is quilted on a long-arm machine by Merete E at Beautiful work.
The binding is done all by machine. A nice way to use a decorative stitch on your machine!
Due to my painful finger joints, hand sewing is not possible at the moment. 
The quilt will be gifted to family in the US, for welcoming us when we visit. Hope to see them soon!

Tirill Top 2

This top is another Tirill Topp by idavictoria,no. Used short arms from patter, maybe they were a little too short. Fabric from Stofflykke; GOTS Jersey "Månekogen Hvit".
Last weekend I also made these weights, for placing on fabric/pattern when cutting. The description I found at at Instagram. Works well, and according to my son, they work well for juggling too!

Tirill Top

Spring is here! Successful result, but the arms where a little tight. Never done a v-neck before.
