A quilt for dear Inger
When I saw a package of Tonga Treats Balinese batiks last year, I instantly thought of Inger. The colors and the life in them reminded me so much of her, I knew instantly I had to make a quilt for her out of those fabrics. So I bought them and got to work. I completed the quilt in time to take it to her when we visited her near Beitostølen, Norway this summer. I had no idea how her house was decorated, and after arriving was afraid it wouldn’t match anything in her decor, so I told her to feel free to take to their home in Cypress or wherever she could use it, but I was delighted to learn her whole bedroom was done in soft shades of pink and the quilt looked very much at home after being put on the bed. It is a Terry Atkinson pattern, Merry Mosaic, and it was quilted by Mary Brandt.
A quilt for Per & Regula
This is a quilt I made for Per & Regula and I took it with us to deliver to them when we arrived in Norway. I’ve wanted to make a two color quilt for a long time, and this one came from a design I saw someone post on Pinterest. It was an easy block to figure out and to make. And it looks gorgeous with the quilting done by Mary Brandt. I am so pleased with how it turned out and I think Per & Regula liked it very much too!
