Danish dreams

I talked so much yesterday so today I will just leave you with these small quilts I made from a linen Jackpot dress I bought second hand much because of the beautiful fabric. It never fitted me anyway. I adore the faded flower pattern on it. Reminds me of nostalgic dreams, very Danish ones... So I added a few cotton patches, cotton batting, appliqué, quilted dream, dream, dream, used a vintage pillow cover for backing, threw them in the washing machine and voilà!

And thanks for the response on my last post, it was very appreciated, as always! Happy Easter to each and everyone!

Everytime I see your pictures in my flickr contacts I'm immediately drawn in. Your creations just make me so happy. Some like the little quilt today remind me of loved and well worn quilts made by my great aunt. The quilt everyone in my house wants to wrap up in. Love that you take used things and give them new life.

My lovely little houses arrived today!!!!! Thank you so much for sending them so quickly - they are even lovelier in real life than they looked in the shop :)

I hope you have a lovely weekend,

I love your Danish dreams!
About the earlier post you wrote, I think that every individual is truly unique in it’s own way.
Being original is not easy, but I consider you to be very original. We can never avoid being influenced or inspired. It’s about the way we translate the ideas into something with our own ‘handwriting’. You really succeed in doing that! You have the typical Syko style, I love it.
One of my first posts was about all the birds I discovered on blogs and my anxiety to copy something one day without meaning to....
Let’s have fun, that’s the most important and your work breathes fun!

Those quilts are stunning! Everything about them makes me feel sort of funny inside because I love them so much (I hope that makes sense!) - there is something so perfectly muted and antiquey about them and I love all the texture of the quilting. Lucy x
