|This is a patchwork duvet cover I've entitled "The Lake of Zug" quilt because our family uses it at the Swiss boathouse of cousins when we holiday at the Lake of Zug. It's a homey little lake, not a glam resort, and the quilt certainly fits the tone.|
I've used Maggi McCormick Gordon's book, "1000 Great Quilt Blocks" to illustrate the swans and ducks that swim underneath our balcony and beg for snacks in exchange for introducing us to their latest baby each year. (photo on my blog) as well as a classic 'water' pattern for the lake waves.
The quilt was made only with genuine remnants, used clothes, worn out napkins or tablecloths and other bits and bobs. No quarters bought, ("no quarters given, haha, as they say in the swashbuckler movies of old.)
It's part of a blog post I've done about another pair of duvet covers I'm patchworking using a Japanese block from Susan Briscoe's "Japanese Quilt Blocks," All while watching the British hit, "The Great British Sewing Bee,"
see my blog for more photos, etc, Chanel No.6
