Dancing Pinwheels .........

Love is still in the air ...... Watching the big and beautiful wedding yesterday,it reminded me of the last wedding I went to about 3 years ago:

When my cousin Berit married,she moved in with Oscar in his lovely apartment.
She then wanted to
change things,
(don`t we all)like
making an inviting
bedroom with light
colours.Here you see
the King seize bed
quilt,I made for
them. It is a
variation of
Dancing Pinwheels
pattern.They both
were very pleased
with the result.!
If the two world famous
new wed from Saturday
had a bed quilt,remains
to be seen!!!

Mind you:
Berit and Oscar got married at the age of 83 and 85. Great!!!
I love them dearly:-)

At the moment all my projects are rather smaller than this quilt.
I`m working steadily on bits and pieces. Nothing finished to show you yet.
Well into lots of lovely BOMs,always taking longer time than I think:)).
Nice to be inspired by you all and Happy Sewing to you!

Grethe, your Dancing pinwheels is awesome! I have not tackled any large quilts yet, because I don't think I would be able to quilt them on my machine. And I'm totally in love with the quilt in your header. Absolutely beautiful! What pattern is that? I think I MUST have it.

How gorgeous...both your quilt and getting married at 83 & 85! Go Berit & Oscar...

Berit said...

Teppet er jo bare lekkert.
Hvis jeg skulle komme til å gifte meg omigjen i åttiårene, vil jeg få noe lignende?

Grete said...

Flott teppe! Stilig med fine, avstemte farger!

Wow, that's a gorgeous quilt. Must have taken you ages to do. How sweet finding love in your 80's they will love the quilt.
