New blocks and Fabrics


Hi friends! Almost wordless post with some new blocks for my ‘Make My Day’ quilt and thanks to a dear friend for the win in her give away.


I was soooooo happy to be the lucky one and win these beautiful fabrics from Judith’s give away! Thank you so much Judith!!! I’m sure most of you know Judith from ‘Just Jude’ – if not, it’s time to meet her! She makes beautiful things, gives sewing classes and she is always so helpful and supportive! Thank you again dear friend!

Each and every piece is just what my stash needed! Judith was so sweet that she sent to me also some white linen and light grey cotton – my favourites!


And tape measures – also just what I needed … I need tape measures in many places. I have many ideas for these most beautiful fabrics and can’t wait to get to autumn and have time to start!

There are some new blocks for my ‘Make My Day’ quilt, even the last days has been grazy busy. But now and then I take a moment to make a block or two … just to ‘make my day’!


Picking up colours. If the block makes me smile, it’s  Goooooal!!!

  12. Isn’t it fun to win something–and fabric is right up there as being the really best. As usual, I love your color choices– especially the square dude it is so bright and summery. I’m going to start using more white in my stuff, see if it works for me like it does for you. Hugs Sonja

  13. Voi, onko noita Pectuksia vielä olemassa! Muistoissani liitän ne 60-70- lukuun ja naapurin tätiin, jolla oli niitä aina tarjota. ei nykyisin ehkä lasten lempikarkkeja, mutta silloin riitti, että ne oli karkkeja. Ihania blokkeja, tuleva kokonaisuus kutkuttaa entistä enemmän.

  14. Cute blocks and what a lucky win for you! I can’t wait until autumn as well so I have more time to sew. School starts back up in 3.5 weeks. You can bet I’m counting the days!

  15. Hello Teje,

    I am so happy you won that bunch, it is so you, and perfect for your quilt(s)! Lovely news. And your new block look so pretty, it will be one beautiful piece once finished! And did I spot Pectus?!? I wish you’re not ill – although those can be eaten just for their taste and pretty pearly pinkness too 😉 Something very “from my childhood”!

    Lovely week, hope your business will not stress you too much!


    • Hei Mia ja kiitos taas ihanasta kommentista! Pectukset ovat vain ‘piristykseksi’ laukussa, ei vilustmiseen. Tama kesa menee ihan huomaamatta niin monen ‘bisneksen’ kanssa, kohta ystavat alkavat jo ajatella joulujuttuja ja mina en ole ehtinyt viela edes kunnolla kesaan! Oikein hyvaa viikonloppua! x Teje

  16. What lovely fabrics – congratulations on your win!
