A couple people commented on my Christmas post to ask about the quilted wall hanging in our living room. In response, I promised to put some close-up pictures of the quilt on the blog for Jeanne, Elsie, and you to see.
The quilt was a gift from Ms. Bungalow to me for our second anniversary. One of the traditional anniversary gifts for that year is “cotton” and I think that was all the pretense she needed when she saw it in a pottery shop in downtown Minneapolis. The shop, which has since closed, sold handpainted turkish pottery; the quilt was made by the shopkeeper’s sister.
There are 792 squares in three sizes in the quilt. I think the colors and pattern are both very handsome and masculine. (Perhaps that’s why Ms. Bungalow thought of me?) If you know the name of the pattern, please share it because we haven’t a clue. We just know it was artfully made and we love how it looks on our bungalow wall.
