    Gotta Stop this!!

    I was watching the ID (Investigative Discover) Crime Channel. In the middle of the murder investigation with all the mayhem in the house, I noticed a "Quilt" hanging on the wall!! It was a Wedding Ring Quilt.


    Now I can't remember if it was the husband or wife doing the killing!!! that Wedding Ring quilt didn't bring them very good luck!!

    This has got to stop, right????? LOL

    I was watching a police-type tv show a couple of weeks ago (I think it may have been "Elementary") and was absolutely amazed at how many quilts were in that show! There was one hanging on a wall, one over the back of a couch, one on a bed, and one that someone was snuggling with - all in ONE show! I was tickled.

    I've been noticing quilts in a lot of the newer shows and commercials lately. I watch re-runs from the 70's and 80's and notice quilts in them, that I don't recall noticing back then.The Aflac duck and the Gieco Gecko have quilts. My youngest GD says their Gramma's must love them to make them quilts too.

    We were at the VA Friday. The floor in the elevator had an interesting design, and I told my hubby that it would make a pretty quilting design. He just laughed and said that I see them everywhere! Well, doesn't everyone?

    That is funny, my hairdresser has square tiles on her floor and while I am under the drier, I find myself "quilting" them.

    I saw some photos on Facebook with reflections of landscapes on lakes (getaway properties) and they all looked like Bargello designs. LOL! Also being a realtor and seeing different properties I now see different quilt patterns. Run down buildings, some look like crazy quilts and wonky quilts. LOL!

    It is easy to understand why Gunsmoke and Bonanza would have quilts in them. Think of the time in history they were portraying.

    When life gives you scraps, make a quilt.

    I see quilts in shows and laugh when I see the word "quilt" in any book I'm reading.

    i have a friend who does pottery--hers is hand thrown, hand carved celtic knotwork. her grandmother was a prolific quilter. since i have and use many of patty's pots, i'm tuned into pottery, as well as quilts. (she brings her things over for "show and tell" every time she has a new batch. i love having first opportunity to "pet" them! www.prrpots.com/) we are always giving each other movies or shows to watch for a certain scene that has quilt or pottery in it. those are the first things we seem to focus on!

    I love watching old shows or movies on Netflix and stopping it when I see a quilt. My kids think their Momma is nuts. LOL!!

    I love ID! My DH says I watch it to get ideas as to how to knock him off! I thought I was the only one who sees quilts everywhere. I did take a picture of a design in a tile floor, thinking that it would be a great center block for a quilt. I'm so glad phones have cameras now! LOL

    This is so funny...my sister and I say the same thing although she has a hubby and I don't! But she says the suspect(s) get caught and I tell her that I see "what they did wrong" and won't repeat their errors!! She doesn't see quilting because she doesn't quilt...but she is a "know it all" (said with utmost love! LOL) so we have to analyze everything on the show!! She does have one redeeming grace...she sews and machine embroiders and has the big expensive machines!!
