Everyday Objects: Quilt

Thanks to everyone who read and commented on my last post - I appreciate the input! :)

Continuing my foray into photography and everyday objects ... here's one of my paternal grandmother's quilts ... drying in my kitchen.


 It's an heirloom piece, yes, but I believe that things are made to be used.  So it goes on my bed, and consequently gets covered in cat hair.  So, it goes in the washing machine, just like it did when it still lived with my grandma. :)

Behind it, my living room:


And today's weather...typical for the season in Orléans:


Have a great weekend, everybody!

  1. Those are beautiful colours in your quilt.I agree about using heirloom pieces in everyday life. I love your rooftop view and the little red desk xx

    1. I quite like the purple!! And I totally love my view of the rooftops. It's difficult to take a photo that does it justice. :)

  2. What a beautiful quilt! I have a couple of heirloom quilts, one from my husband's grandmother and one from my great-grandma, and I have to confess that I've been too scared to use them (we've got a dog hair problem over here, as I'm sure you can imagine!)! They're both folded up in my cedar chest. Maybe I should dig them out!

    1. If it were my great-grandmother's quilt I think I would hesitate! But I grew up with these quilts...my grandmother used them in her daily life; so I do too. :)
