Alternate titles: She who dies with the most fabric wins, The Quilted House, or My Mother in Law let me take photos of her house.
I've been wanting to do this forever, but when we were at my in-laws for Thanksgiving, I took photos of all her quilts. Not closeups, just in-use photos. You know that she's made us a ton, and they're amazing - but you should see her house! So, yeah, let's be clear, these are not made by me, but my by awesome MIL. She was nice enough to let me post them, too - I figured some of you guys would like this.
Unfortunately it was rainy outside, so not the best lighting, but here we go.
How many quilts do you see in the below photo? I count... eight?
In the guest room (there are also quilts/quilt tops in the closet!):
Little quilts are on many of the dressers and tables.
And this is where the magic happens. :) She has the most amazing sewing room setup.
I kinda like to hang out here. Just a little. ;) And I'm afraid she won't like the above shot because it's kinda cluttered (doesn't TOUCH what my craft room looks like right now all the time), but that's our fault anyway, she was getting out things to show me and craft kits for the kiddos.
Let's take a better look at that fabric wall...
There are also baskets and little boxes of fabric.
And I took a peek in a drawer: more fabric! I didn't get any shots of the closet - guess what's in there?
She has her projects super organized.
Sorry about the shadow...
Anyway, I was showing her my quilt board on pinterest, and she saw that I'd pinned the cutest fabric and said 'Oh, I have that.' I was pretty excited to see it in person.
Oh, and she has a DESIGN WALL. So awesome.
A quilt rack by the door holds mostly quilt tops, but you saw I got one of the little Christmas ones, right? Cute!
Anyway, let's continue the tour. This one below is king sized.
Sandy, I need to see the one on the bottom of the rack better next time - I'm sure I saw it before, or at least in progress, but in this photo I LOVE it! The pieced border is sweet.
The dining room. And I realized that I forgot to take a photo of the big basket full of table quilts! Darn it!
The back of the couch:
And our little setup in their bonus room. You will never be cold staying at their house!
Thanks, Sandy for letting me show off your quilts!
