Scandinavian Heritage Quilt

Well, here I am finally getting around to putting a new post up on my blog. Here is my finished Scandinavian quilt. My professor and also my neighbor have been trying to talk me into entering it into a quilting or fiber arts contest. I am considering it.

This quilt was designed by me, using the flags of all the Scandinavian countries as inspiration in the design. It is made with 100% cotton fabrics and 100% bamboo/cotton blend batting. This original took me 10 weeks to complete, and $40 in materials.

I am also working on a twin sized children's quilt for Breanna that features Olivia the Pig, a popular children's book character featured on Nick Junior. I have designed the quilt myself using red, white and black fabric. I will put the picture up on my next post. I'm almost done, I just need to sew on the backing. I love this Olivia quilt, it's fabulously fun.
