Today a few pictures of the first patchworkquilt I'm working on. I started after visiting a quilt exhibition two years ago. I was impressed by the works I saw and bought a book, Quiltpatronen (quiltpatterns) by Davina Thomas, and a few pieces of fabric. On our trip in may that year to Denmark I started, by hand, making different blocks.

Together with my little girl, concentrated on our work.
At the end of our trip I finished a few blocks, but had no idea how to combine them in one quilt.

Trying which combination will work

Now, one and  a half year later, I'm quilting the sandwich, still by hand. It takes a lot of time but I like the result.
and it needs a bit of ironing

There are about 8 big blocks to quilt... to be continued!
