Sewn Scandinavian Series: Close-Knit Quilt Pattern

The third pattern in our series is here y'all! I know you're not supposed to pick favorites, but this one honestly takes the cake for me. I have had a lot of fun making different versions of this one and I connect a lot to the inspiration behind this one. Let's dig in! 

 

 

Another aspect of Scandinavian homes is their creation of a cozy atmosphere. Their winters can be long and very harsh so a cozy spot to gather with family and friends inside is important. So, important that the Danish have actually given this concept a name - Hygge.

Scandinavian homes are designed around the center, gathering place of the home. The Close-Knit Quilt Pattern is a nod to this concept. Each block works its way towards a small center block that represents the heart of the home. We spend a lot of our time as a family snuggled up on the living room sectional watching movies when the weather is bad. I kind of love these days!

This concept is also a modern take on the Log Cabin Quilt. Log Cabin Quilts are composed of Log Cabin Blocks. Throughout history you can see these arranged in tons of different ways to create really vibrant quilt patterns. The Log Cabin Block is said to have been created around 1863. Because the pieces are fairly small this also allowed people to use scraps of old fabric they had laying around their homes. That sounds like the practicality of Scandinavian design to me! Reduce, reuse, recycle right?!
