About Ningiu

Ningiu is the Greenlandic word for grandmother, since I'm part Greenlandic and because handicraft reminds me of my grandmother and mother I find the name appropriate.

The last of the summer reruns

Wow, the summer sure did fly by, I didn’t finish as many quilts as I had hoped,
but I did managed to finish some.
I had almost forgotten about this quilt, and found it while I was cleaning up my fabric cabinet.
I don’t know why it took so long to finish because it came together quite quickly in the end.
It fits the ending of summer just perfect, since the colours and prints has a felling of fall to it.
I’m experimenting with different batting trying to find a favourite,
and figured that a cotton/wool blending would be just perfect for this

. I didn’t like working with it, since it was very slippery
and made it hard to avoid wrinkles on the back.

But I think the end result is quite cute, very retro and perfect as a baby blanket.

Otherwise there really is allot going on around here. Marie turned 1 last Tuesday, and started day-care, we are having a party for her tomorrow. My maternal leave is over and I have returned to school, which is extremely exciting, but also steals away my quilting time. (Not that I’m complaining, I’m going to sew a lot in school, how lucky can one be!!)

So I’ve decided that September is going to be a small project month, I’ve been wanting to do various little projects for a long time and now seems like a perfect time to do it.
I hope you have a great weekend.

That is the perfect quilt to snuggle under this time of the year! It's getting chilly here in Canada, but I refuse to admit what season is just around the corner!
