    Do you ever get distracted when watching TV by quilts that are just part of the set? Last night I was watching a detective drama and completely lost track of the plot because I was trying to work out how a cushion on the sofa had been made :roll:

    Movies too. Just watched A Simple Twist Of Fate again so I could study the quilts in it. There are three and all are very nice.

    I watch a lot of old black and white movies. There's always at least one quilt in them if they were made in 1940s or earlier. There's one I saw in a silent movie that I've put in my bucket list.

    I'd like to see Friendly Persuasion again. They are walking back from the barn, she's carrying an Album quilt. Oh, I pieced the Double X from Dances With Wolves. Found just the right double pink for the solid squares.

    I do exactly the same thing, but then I'm easily distracted. LOL

    My husband and I seldom watch TV together since I'm in my sewing room. But suddenly he yells "quilt" to let me know there's a quilt in the background. So I come running, of course.

    Happens to me all the time. If I see a quilt in a movie or tv show, I can't hear what they are saying anymore because I'm concentrating on the quilt pattern and colors.

    Love The Waltons.

    Whatever happened to that simple red and white quilt with just squares that was on the FRIENDS show in the beginning for a few seasons?
