This quilt is currently being used as a barrier to keep cold air from getting from the dining room to the kitchen. We have another quilt hanging between the living room and the hallway for the same purpose. I made that one myself over 25 years ago.
Notice that the lower right corner has been pinned back to serve as a clue to the cats on how to get past the barrier. This side shown above faces the dining room.
The quilt was made using scraps to create flowers, which were appliquéd onto the surface of square white blocks which were then joined. You can clearly see the seams showing where the blocks were joined. The quilting design is simply crossed lines of quilting creating a grid. This clearly is a quilt that was meant to be used. I think I remember sunbathing on it in the backyard as a child with my mother. She taught me at a young age how to broil myself, a habit which I unlearned in my young adulthood. My face thanks me now.
The safety pins can’t be good for it, but when it came time to hang the quilts for the summer I couldn’t lay my hands on the T pins I had used last year, and I had to run out and buy some safety pins.
I am currently working on a panel specifically designed to hang at the location between the living room and the hallway. After I finish that panel I will design a panel to hang between the kitchen and the dining room.
