Quilt Sighting #5

On Sunday I flipped on the TV after being out for the aftenoon, and caught the very last part of the movie 'Little Women'. I had no idea it was on, or I'd have Tivo'd it. This was the version with Winona Ryder and Susan Sarandon.

It was just playing the scene where sadly Beth is dying. It always chokes me up, but I held it together enough to get a few snaps of the quilt on her bed. It looks so pretty, I wish I could see it better. 

The quilt looks like it has been beautifully hand quilted, and you can see a little of the applique in the next picture. Such a sad scene.

I'll have to make sure to see this movie again in its entirety, as many ladies have commented on the quilts that feature in it.

So, before the movie, Kath and I were visiting Wohlers that Sunday, I've been on the lookout for a candelabra  I didn't find what I was looking for on the day - but they called the next day to let me know they'd found some for me - they're not really vintage looking - so I'm not sure they're exactly what I'm thinking of, so I will probably keep looking. I sadly missed out on one today at auction, but I still have two and a half weeks to find the perfect thing. We're having a formal dinner party again, and IMHO half of the fun is the planning and searching for the perfect things.

Better run, Lizzy is on her way over - time for some stitching and to catch up on all the news! xox

Taz I am not sure if you ever watch The Waltons but they always have wonderful quilts on all Kids beds...I love to see the different quilts they display

You know what might be fun to add to this little game? If we work out whether the quilts we see in period shows are true to the time frame.

Kidding! Lets just drink in all the loveliness!

I cant go to Wohlers . I;d do some serious damage to my bank account if I did that . I just know I would!
