It seems I was right about the quilt forgeries!  The only person who can be sure to get the original quilt will be the one who bids and wins it on eBay!

How do I know this?  Well - as I said, it is Victoria Day, and guess what?  In Victoria, the provincial capital of BC, named after Queen Victoria - this is what they have done with the quilt:



Sooo - if this is the original, what is that other one doing in London?

Maybe that pirate has a quilt 'sweatshop' below decks?   :hmmm

Well!  Seems like I was right in my hunch about the counterfeit quilts being manufactured on that sailboat - just found this 'sweatshop'



Hmmm - who knew there was that much room below deck?

2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the Rubiks cube, a very special edition has been issued, in honour of the beautiful quilt made by foldi.

Gosh - news of the quilt is spreading - such an honour to have a special edition Rubik's cube dedicated to foldi's quilt.  But I fear there are loads of counterfeits out there.  

Maybe that's an original hanging in your yurt, typos?  It looks lovely - almost makes me want to go camping!

I am still wondering whether that pirate might be making lots of copies, though.  Look what washed up ashore today ....

I do believe Mom and Dad have been working on a redecorating project.  It looks pretty good there.

:thumbup:   Thanks for all the artwork - I'm really enjoying following the path of the quilt and the many forgeries! 

ummmm .... the one on the stump?  they don't seem to recognize it as an intruder!  Hope Mom and Dad don't attack it, or Scootch poop on it!  :eclol

I too am enjoying the quilt going around the world.  So many creative /artistic eagle lovers.

Do you think this might be another forgery - or is it the original and genuine item riding around White Rock on the side of Fol-di-rol's Rolls?
