Lake House Holiday Quilts
The quilts are up at the Lake House! Bevalee and I had fun bossing around our Caldera Springs helpers--funny that we didn't hear as much grumbling as we might have if it were strictly hubbies on the ladders!
This year is the first time we have quilts in the foyer and they make the entry warm and homey. We have room for a few more small quilts in that space, so I'll try to find time in the next year to finish one I've been working on for ages.
The largest quilts are in the Living Room, where they frame a glorious view of Mt. Bachelor (it was too bright to get a direct shot, though). The soaring ceilings are wonderful for displaying these bigger quilts -- the bottoms are still at least 8' above the ground! A few of the quilts in this room aren't specifically holiday quilts, but the mix of colors and styles makes for a nice display.
Most of the quilts are in the Family Room again this year. Quite a few are traditional red and green Christmas quilts, but there are a few others to jazz things up
Hooray, now I can stop sewing on hanging sleeves and get back to other projects!
