Is Your House Cold?

 My friend, Suzy once told me her hubby had asked if she thought their house was cold.  No, why she had asked.  She hadn't put on a sweater or anything.  Because you have quilts on all the walls, he responded.  
Do you have quilts on your walls?  I do.  I love to change them with the change of seasons and holidays.  I just put away all the Halloween quilts and have now put up my fall quilts.  Like this apple quilt I made at a sew in several years ago in my local quilt guild.
This falling leaf quilt is one of my first patterns.  It uses reverse applique.  Please ignore the patched wall.  One of my sons got a little rambunctious and put a hole in it.  He patched it but I've been unable to match the paint so he could finish fixing it.  We may have to repaint the whole room and down the hall.  That may teach him to get so rowdy. 
This sunflower is also one of my earlier patterns.  I call it Indian Summer.  Which it appears we are having.  After having snow last weekend we are now enjoying mid 60* 

With temperatures like that my house may not be cold but I'll hang quilts just in case.

  1. I love that question! It made me chuckle as I imagined the idea.

    Your fall quilts look so pretty. The apple one with the curves is great.

  3. Hi Emily,
    what a thrill to see one of my patterns in the wild! I only taught this once in Utah at quilt fest (in St. Geo) years ago! I honestly can't remember everyone in that class! I love the way you used curves to cut the blocks apart! I am trying to get this pattern into a pdf for sale, may I use a photograph of your quilt in the gallery! Thanks, Sylvia

  4. Even though I live in Arizona, and the house is usually HOT, I still hang plenty of quilts on the walls. They also act as sound insulation :)
