Today I want to share with you the images inspiring this quilt. Early on "Scandinavian" folk motifs captured my imagination. I started a Scandinavian Pinterest Board to collect a cash of Scandinavian folk images or color stories that represent the mood I hope to achieve. The quilt incorporates many traditional elements like the dala horse, birds and flowers, while the quilt's unusual layout and playful scale pay homage to the modern Scandinavian aesthetic we all know and love (think Ikea!).

I've started making individual blocks, which I'll be sharing here and there. Let's hope that my actual quilt holds a candle to that first vision. Sometimes a good idea is a lot to live up to.
