New Weekender

Last week my friend Meike gave me this incredibly fabulous weekender as a belated christmas gift (we didn’t manage to meet earlier):

And this is the back:

I am a lucky girl, am I not?! I love her choice of colour and the way she quilted the outer panels.

And I love the sturdy handles and the little pockets and the zipper pocket and the little flower and… and… everything!

And isn’t this stamped label just too cute?!

And it has a perfect size for the weekends I spend at my parents’ when I take my kids there for a visit. A perfect gift! Thank you again, Meike!!!

Now you may want to see the christmas gift that I had made for her:

Fabric Basket Meike

I made a fabric basket to match the quilt I made her last year:

And I gave Meike two Kate Spain Charm Packs to convince her to start making quilts. We took a basic sewing class together 3 years ago and developed different sewing preferences since. I became addicted to quilting and she makes the most beautiful clothes for her children, awesome pouches and phone covers, loops and bags. Plus she has great taste – for example when it comes to colour coice and combining solids with prints. I’m so glad we met 4 years ago!!! (in a water-gymnastics class for pregnant women when we were both expecting a second baby).

Here’s to a long lasting friendship and many more happy sewing hours spend together!

Give your best friend a hug!


  1. Wow, you are so lucky! This bag is really nice!

  2. I need a weekender, it's gorgeous, your a lucky girl :)
