Guest Artists: With a Danish Twist

Else and friend stitching in Denmark.
Meet my friend Else. I met Else 3  years ago in Houston when she received her certificate in Fusology in my class. No doubt a degree she shall cherish forever!
Forest Home from Fanciful Stitches by Annemarie.
Else is also a quilt teacher. She hosts week-long workshops in Denmark.  
Tree by Tove.
Having just visited Denmark during a Baltic quilting cruise, I can tell you, its a wonderful place!
Houses by Birgitte.
With a little help from my book, Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts, and Else's fusing expertise, her students created these charming little art quilts.

Nice Neighborhood project by Jette.
She says her "students enjoyed to cut and fuse and were very engaged in making small quilts with inspiration from your books."  
Another Nice Neighborhood. This one is by Lene.
This past June marks the 6th year Else and her students have met for a week to sew, eat healthy food,  relax, and enjoy a beautiful place in Denmark.

Thank you to Else and her students for sharing their work with us!
