Finland is certainly known for design. One thing I love is that lots of everyday items (like my plastic iced tea pitcher) include the name of the designer.
Here's the adorable notice I received to let me know I had a package to pick up at the post office. (The blue and orange Posti logo might also inspire a quilt - especially now that the MQW love beads have taught me to inset half circles!)
And then there's Marimekko! It's pretty pricy, but I bought a bit to make a curtain for the smallest window in my apartment.
Best of all, these Nordqvist teas bags/boxes are dying to become a quilt!
