This summer's finale was a visit with one of my favorite quilt-makers, Marit, from Norway!
She was in the area visiting her in-laws, but I got to steal her away for a weekend.
First, we visited Buffy for show and tell. Here's Marit showing her stunning self-portrait.
She made it in a workshop with Bodil Gardner.
We visited some fabric shops, and then bought a heap of shirts from Goodwill.
The next morning, I awoke to find Marit's treasures beautifully organized and stacked on the couch.
Later, we got out my "orphans." I didn't know what to do with these vintage churn dash blocks.
Right away, she noticed how well they went with my scrappy shirt stripe blocks. Yea!
Then I got out my red and green blocks, and she was off and running.
