The oldest surviving stave church in Norway, the one in Borgund, near Lærdal, which is on the Sognefjord. To learn more about this fascinating building, go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borgund_Stave_Church
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.
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!
I always like to go to Bradley’s when I go back to Tallahassee. It brings back lots of pleasant memories. And I like taking pictures of Juliette rocking on their front porch.
Another cute picture taken while Juliette had a tea party with Granda Florida in her yard this past Saturday.
We spent the afternoon in Carabelle, one of our favorite places. So much better today after our urgent care scare last night with her 104 temperature. But children recover amazingly quickly.
