Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Watching Gunsmoke and counting how many quilts I see. All are beautiful. Just wish they would leave them on long enough to really see them. Even the wallpaper and rugs look like quilts. Do I have quilting on the brain?
What shows do you watch that have quilts?
I thought I was the only one who noticed quilts on TV shows....I've been watching old reruns of "Big Valley". They have one quilt that seems to show up on a lot of shows. I've seen it in the Barkley home, also on hotel beds, on some bed where someone is sick or injured and in a totally different town. It's so funny now to see "the quilt" in so many different places. :))
I also watch the old TV shows for quilts. I just wish some of the old black and white shows were in color. I was watching and episode of Wagon Train and wishing I was recording the show so I could look at the quilt they had hanging in the background. I have also noticed lattice designs in the background of shows and blankets that I think were Indian designs that would be good quilt designs. I remember noticing a Indian blanket hanging on a wall in a John Wayne movie and lattice work in a Star Trek movie.
Oh, Yeah, any time there's a "bedroom scene" I'm looking for quilts. Actually, I've seen several on different shows/movies.
I love gunsmoke !!
Just remember there are no rules about what you can create through quilting. Experiment, learn new skills, practice them.
