All the way from Iceland, this is Magga's thread where she can share photos of her quilts. Every quilted piece that Magga has made is always a magnificent work of art and most remind me of her beautiful country, perhaps it's the colors she chooses to work with. This is her Quilt Gallery!

She'll be happy to have your comments or questions and just as it is in an art gallery, the pictures shared here will be only of Magga's beautifully creative quilts.

I'll start the thread with her most recent quilt.

Thank you so very much Sharon and Barb. I have followed you both almost since Dave started Cubits, I think it was 2010, you correct me og I'm wrong. You both dear friends have a special place in my heart and I am so grateful for your friendship and for the other friends I have met here on Cubits.

I am going to post here the photos I can find of my quilts and other patchwork things I have made. I hope you will like some of them. Please don't be shy to write a few words about my work, I love to see your comments Ears perked up! Thumbs up

Isn't it funny how we become partial to certain colors. I just love greens and yet used very little in my last quilt.

Yes Barb, I have not used blues much during the years, mainly used greens as I am a tree person. It is just lately that I have done so. Smiling Nov I am going to look for photos ok.

We all go back a long way. Magga and Barb and I keep meeting each other wherever we go, same with others of you in this group. I love that we are again all together here in this little tiny quilting world we've made for ourselves.

Magga's quilts always remind me of growing things, beautiful growing things that bloom. I think anyone who uses colors placed together to form a thing of beauty is an artist, same as those who use a brush and paint. You are all artists, creating beauty with your colors, beauty that will last such a long time.

My grandmother always said that to make beautiful things is an art but to make beautiful useful things is a true gift. I think that applies to our quilters right here.

I have been looking, and here are my very oldest quilts.

The first one is a Log Cabin quilt I gave to my daughter and the secon one is a tablecloth, I think if I remember right that the pattern was called Hidden Wells The pillow case are cuts that came off when the blocks in the tablecloth were cut and sewn together again. Blinking

I had actually made two quilty things before I learned the how to. A log cabin quilt for my son and a tree skirt that I still use. I should have a picture of the skirt as it is used every Christmas. Yes, here it is

Edited: The quilts in the first two photos were made in 1999. Ladies at Eimskip, a shipping company, invited me to join their club. I had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998 and didn't go back to work until later so I happily joined them. My husband worked at Eimskip for 47 years and I had worked there long before and actually met him while working there.

The tree skirt is at least 10 years older I'm not quite sure what year I made it but my guess is around 1990.

Thank you Karen, there was no pattern, or I made it myself by cutting out a carton wedge to use. Just did some calculations. I had never seen a quilt magazine and really didn´t know how to do it. Except I did know how to sew.

I need to make a baby quilt too with applique Elephants on it. That pin wheel might be a good design to use.

Wonderful baby quilts Magga. I really love the white on white and the one that looks like puzzle pieces. Just so pretty.

The quilting on the white on white is spectacular. Definitely way beyond my skills.

Karen, I made this quilt from old pieces of fabric, it is a crazy quilt, embroidered and embellished with old crochetted lace and doilies from my mother. Some were taken from old pillow cases. There are also embroidered initials, mine and my mothers that I cut out of pillow cases. I have lots of lace from my mother and her sister, some used and some unused, made with very fine threads. When I was a child almost all bed linen in my home was decorated with crochetted lace and embroidered initials. We were not poor, just had enough so nobody was hungry, but these two sisters were very good with their hands and quick learners. I seldom saw any patterns, they saw something beautiful and instantly could understand how it was made. Once in a while they borroved something overnight and has finished a project in the morning.

Ah back for a better look, I can see it now. I bought a quilt at a sale that has lace and doilies incorporated into it. Not as elaborate as yours but still quite lovely. I gave it to my daughter when she admired it.
My mother tatted the same way, always used such fine thread. I used to tell her it looked like spider webs. Unfortunately, I don't have much of my mother's tatting. Most of it she made for me I used on dresses for my granddaughters. I have one unfinished piece that I think i will frame.Thumb of 2016-03-02/Siliolegma/0b2b2a

Just beautiful Magga. Every single one of them. You have kept the babies in Iceland nice and warm.....
I love your log cabin. I know I am attracted to the colors. The tablecloth could almost be used for a Quilt of Valor here. And you used the scraps!!! I have bags of them - more than I'll ever use I think....
