The Scandinavian Quilt Project
Wool and flannel quilt project
Last spring, I started a machine-stitched wool quilt with a Scandinavian theme. The wool fabrics are from my friends at Marcus Fabrics. They have a line of wools and flannels that are simply delicious! Since I am a woman of varied ancestry--a lot of Danish, Welsh, and English--I thought I would get in touch with my Danish roots and make a quilt inspired from some of the traditional embroidery patterns. I sent it to the magazine, they liked it, and said it would be published in the Summer 2015 issue! I never dreamed it would be their cover shot. Ha!
