My name is Eldrid Røyset Førde, and I live on the west coast of Norway.
I have been making patchwork and quilts since the late eighties, – more than 20 years now. Since 2002 I have been showing my quilts on my webpage at http://kameleonquilt.com I have also published a few patterns, both on paper and as direct download. Lately I have also dabbled in fabric design, and have a few small fabric panels for sale.
When I first went online with my website kameleonquilt.com I included a section where I wanted to post about inspirational sources for my work, and also about some of the processes as projects evolved from start to finish. The intentions were good, but I have not managed to post as much as I wanted.
In the hope that the blog instruments available today will make the process of “posting on the go” a little easier and less time consuming, I want to give this a new try by starting this blog.
In my experience, it is often the many small, everyday things in my immediate surroundings that provide inspiration and make the ideas coming. I do not know yet, – but I guess, – that this will reflect on my postings here too.
I hope you too will find some of it interesting and useful, though.
More info about me can also be found on my website.
