I've missed this quilt


I had some quilts out today to take pictures of them and left this one up for now because I haven't been able to get the right angle for the photograph. It *fills* this room and it's kind of startling to walk in and see it hanging there in the corner but seeing it out I realize how much I've missed it.

It's one of my favorite quilts and was on my guest bed in Marietta so I saw it every time I walked by the room it was in. Now it spends it's days folded up in a cabinet - sad isn't it?

Isn't it amazing how a limited palette quilt can looks so varied? I can see why it is one of your favorites--gorgeous!

Love the red and white quilt Mary! Perhaps it can be folded on the couch or chair to enjoy viewing more frequently.

Mary,
What a gorgeous quilt Mary - I prefer multi color quilts but yours makes great use of the limited palette- Hope you find a place to show it in your house- it would shine wherever you can put it.. Thanks for sharing.

It's big! It's beautiful!!

(ps saw your pineapple blossom in your album. Love it and see you didn't sash it which looks great and may be a solution for mine as I'm running out of butterfly fabric - thanks)

That is much too pretty to be tucked away.

I looked at it on the bed, & loved it! The colours look nicer in the bed pic. And dear Chesty waiting for you!

Wow it is gorgeous!! Maybe you can find a place to leave it out folded?? On top of the bookshelf next to where it's hanging??
