A little more than a year ago, I signed up for DesignMatters Creative Quiltmaking course. About a week ago I finnished, and now I have City & Guilds Level 2 Certificate in Creative Techniques – Textiles. My last quilt was an appliqué I called «Leidangen». It is inspired by our Viking boats Oseberg and Gokstad.
and on the bottom I quilted a «Leidang» which means «fleet of conscripted warships». These are from a carving found when they excavated the Medieval Bryggen here in Bergen, after the great fire in 1955.
Well, it has been a very busy year, and just now, I feel a bit empty. Christmas is approaching and now I will concentrate on that. And after Christmas, I have a deadline for the Norsk Quilteforbund’s annual competition, on February 1st.
