Photoshoot on a foggy day with cows for company:
my tagpoppin' quilt finished at 67" * 67". The beautifully and detailed quilting is by Marianne Engeset Nybølet at KarmaQuilts using thin cotton batting.
This quilt has a multilayered story:
- fabric is a mix of collected fabric that was gifted to me by a dear and generous friend, LeeAnn; and shirts we both found while tag popping together in Ballard, Seattle. Happy days!
- layout is inspired by the find of a viking brooche in a little creek bordering the farm were my grandmother grew up
- the quilting is Mariannes skilful interpretations of my memories ot his special place.
- these pictures are taken on this same location, now a family summer house on a small island on the west coast of Norway.
So happy with how this homage to my grandmother turned out. It holds a lot of good memories and connections for me.
