Once upon a time ... the queen of the swamp (our lawn is so soggy) had an idea:
let's make a quilt for Rosa:
As she's in the navy, riding the waves (not a the moment,but still), let's make this a quilt with lots of waves! Or bottles, it depends on your view:
Unfortunately, the queen of the swamp didn't manage to put her theory to practise, so she thought of something else: another design which would be (much) easier!
Rosa only had one wish: she wanted anchors on it.
A beautiful set of (12 green and blue) fat quarters of Kaufmann Batiks were waiting to be transformed into a quilt. So the QofS started working, in secret.
In spite of many setbacks later .... she finished the quilt.

Actually, at our local second hand shop I found this (shynthetic) duvet cover.
It's one from the Navy; how it got there I don't know ...
I will never use synthetics again, EVER

|I chose a blue and green batik for binding.|
So glad it's (finally!) finished.
We gave it to Rosa yesterday evening and she was pleased.
And very surprised about the duvet cover.
My husband thought of the name: Orange, Rosa, Blue
Orange: the colour of our royal family
Rosa: in the middle
Blue: one of the colours of the sea.
At the same time somewhere else in the garden of the Swamp: the while our hydrangeas (Lime Green) are so beautiful and smell lovely!
And our pond is nearly overflowing; well, we've still got 40 to 50 cm left before that cup runneth over ...
