In case you don't speak Swedish, that translates to "Introducing Eva." This is my new quilt project using Carrie Nelson's pattern Sweet Escape and the 2 Eva layer cakes that Carrie sent me from Spring Market. The fabric designer is Basic Grey, who designs scrapbook papers and now also designs beautiful fabrics for Moda.
A couple of things - I know these blocks look very unbalanced. This is just over half of them completed, and I will work on a more pleasing color arrangement after they are all done. Also - the white fabric around my squares is the flannel on my design wall - I'm still trying to find a suitable fabric for the setting triangles (and pink was not a good choice!).
A little side note - when I was in high school we had 4 choices of foreign language study - French, German, Spanish and Swedish. While my parents tried to discourage me from taking Swedish (so impractical!), I signed up anyway (it's that stubborn Taurus thing). We had a great teacher - Frau Johnson - and boy was it ever fun, but sadly the program was dropped and I was only able to take 2 years of high school Swedish. Even sadder, I have retained NONE of it. The funny thing is, I remembered as I started this blog post that the Swedish name I chose for myself in class was Eva. I think this fabric was somehow meant to be mine. Thanks again, Carrie!
