Years ago, I would not have, but in the last few years, I sure do. In Sleepy Hollow, Johnny Depp was cowering under one. Have you seen a movie recently that had a quilt in it?

Here is a thread I started earlier this year about quilts in the movies.

I notice them all the time. Especially in Westerns you'll see them a lot. I really like the quilts in "Must Love Dogs" and "You've Got Mail."

Yep! I just rewatched You've Got Mail and she's got a pinwheel quilt on her bed when she's sick!

Not only do I see them, but a good part of the time I even know what the patterns are! LOL!

Yes, I notice them too! I was flipping through the stations the other day and Little House on the Prairie was on - lots of quilts in that show.

it doesn't stop there- went on a tour of a mansion and was looking at a quilt on the maid's bed- it was made in China. I know the event planner- told her I will research her a time period appropraite quilt and make one.
