As I have mentioned before, there are two Quilting Groups in Prescott (AZ) and after the Yarnell Hill Fire that destroyed 121 homes, they wondered what they might do to help the people who were rebuilding. They came up with the idea of donating some of the quilts they had been working on. I don't know how many ladies there are in each group, but I do know they donated 25 handmade quilts. What a generous gesture. And while they are in a wide range of colors to choose from, each has a printed tag sewn into the backside that reads: "We Welcome You Home with comfort from Thumb Butte Quilters and Mountain Top Quilters, Prescott, Arizona."
As you can see, it is not King-sized, but beautiful nevertheless. I will probably keep it semi-folded over the back of a loveseat, and will use it on the Queen sofa that makes into a bed (for company). The work on it is so precise, I have to admit it is much more professional and well done than the two I lost in the fire (that I had made).
This next one is a close-up to give you a better idea of the detail that went into it.
And this one, I've done a small fold-down so you could see how they did the back side of the quilt.
I didn't notice as I was taking the photo's, but my cat, Holly, managed to get into one of them, as she is kind of black and white herself, she's hard to spot. She thinks the bed is hers. HaHa! And she's so curious, naturally she's going to be right there checking everything out.
Next, is two pieces of art I found at the consignment store. It doesn't show well in the photo, but the frames are really exquisite. Lots of detail, but all in the same shade, so it doesn't look gaudy. Both of these were professionally framed, and they were a steal for the price -- I bought one on Wednesday, then looking at it, decided I should have bought them both. Luckily it was still available, and I picked it up yesterday.
OK, that's it for this blog. Hope you enjoyed the pix and didn't get bored. When I get started on interior decorating I don't know when to stop talking (or writing)!
