I Live In A Padded House
I’m probably the only one on my block with a quilted shower curtain, and I could probably say the same about my quilted clothes chute. (Both are described at lenth in my ugly green book, How NOT To Make A Prize-Winning Quilt.)
I am NOT, however, the only one living in a padded house. If you’ve been a quilter for any significant length of time, you too have probably accumulated more quilts than beds. Where else are you going to put them?!
After just a quick survey, I found 6 quilts in my office (OK some are really small), 9 in the hallway, 2 in the other hallway, 3 in the living room, 1 in the dining room, 2 in the sewing room, 1 in the kitchen (with matching bar stool covers), 5 in the upstairs landing, 2 in Jen’s room, and 2 in our bedroom (neither on the bed)! What does that make, 33?! I should be able to bounce off the walls with nary a black-and-blue mark!
But wait, oh smirking reader. Let’s see how many quilts YOU have hanging around YOUR house! There’s a link to a little survey below. Before you jump right in you’ll want to snag a scrap of paper and a pencil. Maybe a calculator. Answer these questions as you tour your home counting YOUR quilts:
How many quilts…?
On beds: ______
Draped over railing, furniture: ____
Hanging on walls: ____
In storage (not displayed): ____
On floor (for pets): ____
In other places: ____
Got it? OK, great! Take the SURVEY and then report back with a comment to this blog below telling me the TOTAL number of quilts in your home. (I kind of forgot that in the survey.) Hey, I’m NEW at this!
On your mark. Get set. GO!
Forward this blog post to your buddies and have them take the survey too!
