At the outset, I would like to thank you all for the overwhelming response to my Raggedy & Friends BOM. As of this morning, there have been over 1,500 individual downloads of Block 1, which really blows me away. All I can say is, “WOW!”
For those of you who may have missed the initial post, there will be links to each block as they become available at the top of the right sidebar on my blog. Block 1 is there now.
And speaking of Block 1, Betty of luv2sew wrote to tell me that she has already completed her first block and has given me permission to share it with you. She is doing hers in 1930’s fabrics. How cute is this!
How’s that for speedy stitching and sewing? Bravo, Betty!
Now to get back on track and to the subject of this post.
I love to include quilts in my everyday decorating because they tend to add ambiance and also suggest that warmth and comfort lie within. Just the other day as I was looking around our home, a sense of calm enveloped me as I took in some of the quilts. Please join me for a little tour.
The dough box in our kitchen.
Minis in a crock in the hall.
On a bucket bench…
The quilt cupboard in the great room.
The guest bedroom.
An antique hanging from the quilt rack in the guest bedroom.
The master bedroom…
And a throw size of an all over design on the rocking chair in the corner.
And here’s the RAK that Darlene sent me…
On an antique treadle machine…
And on our kitchen table.
I know I’ve missed some but just seeing these photos again of some of the quilts that grace our home gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling. There’s nothing like a quilt(s) to make a house a home.
