Before I got to his quilt, I've made a quilt for his wife, Gitte my very good friend for many years. She has been bragging (hope that's the right word for someone who keeps telling me to do this and that and I want a quilt etc ) She is like that and it is all done in a friendly tone. When she turned 40, she got her quilt. The crazy blocks was made out of fabric for curtains, very slippery. I didn't know any bether then. I quilted it on my old Bernina and she was very happy and actually surprised when she got it.
Lars is now the only one, who hasn't got a quilt of his own. He hasn't complained about it, but obviously he should have one too. And it's here the log cabin quilt came to "life". It had to be boats and I chose blue batiks for the log and the boat in red to lighten up the quilt. On the back is soft red fleece. I have sworn not to use that any more, because it tends to wrinkle, but I couldn't help it, the colour was just perfect for the quilt.
Lars didn't have a clue and he was very very happy about it. Only problem now is that Mikkel has grown and his quilt hasn't. So the next quilt for will have to be a new one for him.
The picture of Lars' quilt is taken, where he has his boat. we too have our boat placed here. It's a simple place with a lot of small cottages and sheds, where people can warm them selfes, make a cup of coffe, get a bite to eat or just a place to keep the tools for fishing.
Both Lars' and Mikkel's quilts are designed in EQ, I would be happy to mail the file for those you want that.
That's the story of the quilt in my header.
