Beach Cottage in Norway

This is the quilt that finally prompted me to join Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival. I made it for my Great Aunt's 90th birthday - and I think it took me that many hours to make. It was in the planning (and buying fabric :-) stage for ages, and was finished in January in time for mum and I to go to Norway to give it to her on her birthday.

It is a mixture of free motion quilting and machine embroidery and applique on a variety of picture fabrics, and represents the family's cottage in Oslo, just opposite the harbour. It has been in the family for a number of generations, and the two red beach huts are very iconic. We all love the cottage, and we all love the wonderful (if *slightly* eccentric) great aunt
