A Little Danish Inspiration

I recently won a copy of Jeanne D'Arc Living from Carol at Raised in Cotton. Oh, my, it is beautiful. You may be wondering why I am posting about this here on a quilting blog. Well, I have to say that this issue is full of inspiration. It is page after page of lovely Danish-French interiors that will make you swoon and get your creative juices flowing. I promise.

It is written in Danish but that does not prevent the beauty and creativity from singing to you from its pages.

A sweet and simple cot for baby, complete with a padded bumper and
cozy quilt hung over the end.

A white wholecloth quilt adorns this bed inviting you to tuck in and take a nap. Do you see those pillows? They are a lovely touch. No detail has been left out here.

I can just see this delicate blue floral design embroidered in the border of a baby quilt, can't you?

Or how about a quilt made in the palest of greys, creams and whites surrounding an appliqued bowl of lilac-colored muscari? French knot heaven. You just never know from where inspiration will come.
Next time you look through your favorite magazine do so with an eye seeking something new and different for your quilting. I am sure you will find something exciting.
