The Norrebro Quilt is an oversized king quilt inspired by a traditional building facade seen from the canals of Copenhagen. The timber beam construction is both structural and decorative, echoing the beauty and utility of quilts. The colors used combine all the colors of the flags of the Lowland countries and subtly and subconsciously nod to the late paintings of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. The Norrebro is truly a work of art for your bed.

My first visit to Copenhagen in the summer of 2017, we stayed in a beautifully cozy and light AirBnB in the Norrebro neighborhood. It’s the hip part of the city lined with funky restaurants and stylish stores - the Brooklyn of Copenhagen. But despite the young, vibrant energy, the architecture was still traditional, old and full of history.
It was, once again, seeing the city from a boat that inspired the design of the Norrebro Quilt. We floated past a traditional Danish house that sat along one of Copenhagen’s canals that struck me visually - it was so obviously a classic, functional construction, but the lines were so clean and graphic that it immediately shouted “I’M A QUILT” to me.
Taking the bones of this pattern and duplicating, flipping and recoloring it was a really exciting process to create the most technically complex quilt I’ve ever assembled. The result and its massive scale is impressive (even to me) and I consider it one of my masterpieces.
