The Copenhagen Quilt emerged out of the striking simplicity of traditional Danish boat houses and uses the bold, understated colors found all over the city. Multi-directional quilting highlights and separates the movement of each color block and culminates in a design that’s as unexpected as it is simple. All together, the Copenhagen Quilt is pure hygge, the Danish word for the feeling of coziness and contentment.

Copenhagen stands out to me as a place of understated drama. Buildings are tall, strong and overpowering, yet void of ornamentation. The colors are bold and austere with brick, black and cement dominating the city’s palette. It’s also a city that really exudes hygge, that feeling of coziness and quiet contentment, which I always want my quilts to embody.
After our Amsterdam boat adventure, we decided to do the same on the canals of Copenhagen. After touring through the city by boat (and getting soaked during a surprise downpour), we floated past a row of traditional Danish boat houses turned in modern workspaces. The sight of these long, pitch black buildings underneath bright terracotta shingles was perfectly bold and dramatic, especially framed by the water and the sky, but it also felt like a really cozy place where you’d be happy to spend your long winter days inside. I was enamored with the look of these buildings and abstracted them for the design for the Copenhagen Quilt.
