Artwork: 'Purple Palette'

Sweden contributed to the EQA (European Quilt Association) Gallery 2013 with these triangles. You can read who has made which vedge.





































And now dear readers, it is time to take a hint from this cat, obviously stitched with Metler thread and on display at the Cats' Protection' stand.
Many apologises for not making a note of the maker's name.

Anyway, it is a lovely quilt, and it has inspired me to climb into bed, too.

Ps. she can't be a cat princess; there is no pea underneath the bottom cushion!
