This is it: I finally have a blog!!

Hello all you wonderful, sparkling, creative people out there!

I have been immensely inspired by all the creative minds and blogs or homepages I have read the last month or so. Mostly by quilters and other related crafts, as this is my main interest.

I must find out how to link to
other blogs.... hmmm...

So now it is my turn to share
my quilts and other stuff with you.

They are not many... but I have made them. All by myself!
And I am happy with the results so far :)


Take a look and let me know what you think, please.

This is my second baby quilt for my first niece.

This was also a present for her baptism in 2008. She is named Birgitte.

I used a pattern called "Big Bear Log Cabin", a free quilt of the month pattern from Judy Martin's website. I made a completely different choice of colour and the way I changed the colour flow over the quilt. I think it worked out nicely :)

This is my first baby quilt.

It was a baptizing present in 2007 for our good friends' first little daughter named Astrid.

I was inspired by a pattern from the wonderful Danish texture artist and quilter Charlotte Yde, called something like "Hovering Triangels", I think...
I love the shadow effect, just a bit too elusive in pale yellow!


A single bed spread to my former mother-in-law. She is a lovely lady!

Finished in 2005.
Hand quilted with little heart pattern matching one of the fabrics.


This is my first quilt, EVER!

It is a bedspread, kingsize, to my parents back in 1997.
Classic Log Cabin pattern and diagonally hand quilted. That was when I realized that I will never be the happy hand quilter. I shall leave that to others *giggle*.


About me?
I am a
Danish 35-year-old girl, who just enjoys life, creating things and of course loves my boyfriend T, with whom I live at the edge of Copenhagen.

Thanks for looking at my blog!!!
