Mermaid Quilt

 

I finished the mermaid quilt!  I can't get a decent picture of the whole quilt because our house is small and the quilt is big.  So, if you want to see the whole thing, you'll have to come visit us in Copenhagen!  Anne was such a lifesaver when I was starting the quilting process.  She talked me through some quilting problems over the phone and we realized that my walking foot wasn't on correctly.  I think that woman knows everything there is to know about quilting!


I met a couple friends for coffee downtown yesterday.  It has been gorgeous here the last couple of days.

 
I joined my sis-in-law's Pattern Challenge.  These are the two Danish patterns that I am going to make this spring.   I love the look of the pants and the top.  Hopefully I can figure out how to make the patterns with some help from Google Translate.   

Hope you all have a fabulous week!

I had a feeling that once you had finished that quilt, it would be too precious for such a mundane job! I think that curling up under it on a cold morning is much better!

I finished my 4th patch. Time for you to start catching up!

The quilt likes it so much more indoors! I know, I need to get cracking on my blocks. I might work on that tomorrow...

Oh, what a gorgeous quilt! It is totally stunning. I see you too are a transplant. I am an American living in Norway. :)

I have used the Onion patterns too. I made a pair of pants for my 4 year old. It was so delightfully fast and easy that I have made her at least 3 more. I think I lost count. They are her faves.

Happy weekend!

When you just left a comment on my blog saying you'd made a mermaid quilt I had to go search your blog for it! I love it! It's such a cool line!
