Quilts by the Water: Alice's Swedish Ex/Huntington Lake, California

Alice's Swedish Ex is the second version of my original pattern, My Swedish Ex. It is also the only quilt that appeared in my first calendar, Quilts and Classics. I had the best time photographing it with Mark's brother, Peter, in Driggs, Idaho, and his classic Jeep.

But when I decided to make a second calendar, Quilts by the Water, I knew it had to be included because it's one of my favorite photos from Huntington Lake.

I have made three versions of the "Ex" pattern and have photographed each of them right here in Pacific Grove, which, believe it or not, is a bathroom by the golf course.

The original: My Swedish Ex

Version 2: Alice's Swedish Ex (made with Alice in Wonderland fabric by Rifle Paper Co.)

Version 3: My Bohemian Ex (made with Bohemian fabric by Anna Maria Horner for my dear friend, Terri Wilhelm)

Anyway, back to Alice's Swedish Ex.

Some of my favorite pictures from Pacific Grove.

Wonderful photos. I don't know which Swedish Ex I like best. Perhaps the Bohemian with the AMH fabrics. They are all so good. It would be fun in a single color scheme too I think.

Like Anne, I like all three of your Swedish Ex quilts. And I'm so glad we get to see them all again! It's funny that the bathroom in Pacific Grove is so picturesque, with its rustic door and the stone walls. A lovely post!
