Gaven was created by Charlotte Warr Andersen in 1990.  Gaven means "the gift" in Danish. Charlotte made the quilt for a competition held in Denmark and it was the Grand Prize Winner of the 1990 Kjeldsen's Fairy Tale Contest. As one of the top three winners, Gaven was printed on the lid of butter cookie tins.
