The Canal Quilt is a birds eye view of the canals of Amsterdam, lined with all the different personalities of house boats parked along the cobblestone sidewalks. The lines of quilting run horizontally and vertically, distinguishing the canals from the sidewalks and house boats. Each quilt back is one of a kind, incorporating the leftover fabric to create a completely unique, reversible quilt.

It’s hard not to become enamored with the house boats that line the canals of Amsterdam. Each one has its own personality, a unique floating island that someone has turned into their own version of home. As someone quite familiar with small, alternative living of a different variety, I found the idea of a floating home, a little oasis from city life, very appealing. So much so that I may have looked into what it would take to ship our Airstream over to Amsterdam and park it on a houseboat platform, turning our Land Yacht into a Canal Yacht.
