Old Quilt: New Spot

I move quilts around a lot in my house.

I made this big traditional log cabin in 2015.

And it is a workhorse of a quilt and gets washed quite often.

Here I’ve just removed it from the much-used couch, washed and dried it, and put it on the green chair—a spot it has never occupied actually.

In this place, I “see” it in a whole different way.

And that is the point I suppose.

I need to rewrite the label as it has faded. I’ll do that sometime today.

It has been SO HOT here for the past few days. Too hot to do anything but the basics. I did run errands and water some outside yesterday—I suppose that is part of the basics. But then I ate lunch and took a mid-day nap on the couch downstairs. The lower level holds cool air so well. The heat just wipes me out.

  1. How nice to have a finished quilt – large enough to be folded back like this one is. I just finished a quilt that I gave to our little dog – variations of log cabins. I wanted to do baptist fans for the quilting, but decided to use wavy lines in a grid pattern. Thank you for posting your photo.
