    Do I decorate with quilts....yes

    Here is my family room and if it weren't for quilts not sure what I'd hang on these big walls... As you can see I like Southwest so I've decorated my Family Room in SW quilts. The Dances with Wind won 1st place in Utah at the SewBatik challenge... we had 1/4 yard of 4 colors and we could add no more than 4 more colors. the colors given to us were the green and yellow in the face and then the two oranges I put into the feathers. I added the navy blue and green background, and feet colors and the green paisly in the shirt... After going through several book finally decided to go with what was in my heart... Southwest!!! was actually surprised that it won... Southwest rarely wins... so was a big surprise... the others... the Buffalo is a brown bag our guild did.. put in 2 yards of a fabric in a brown bag and you get to pick a brown bag... the turquoise/teal was my fabric and a good friend that got my brown bag made this for me knowing I like SW.. the other is a BOM from Southwest Decoraties in Albuquerque (I know I didn't spell that right!) the sashing is from Barb's elegant designs..hand PAINTED not dyed... the last on is a patter from Barb's Elegant designs and I call it Painted Desert... So that is my family room.

    What a nice environment you live in!! I love your log cabin and the quilts within it.

    I've always wanted a log home but ended up with stucco instead. Hubby won out. Something about maintenance, ta da, ta da. Oh, well. So the instance I seen the log cabin, I fell in love. Quilts are calling to me now and so the quilts follow my heart. Your quilt is so unique there is no way anybody could not like it. Maybe you jarred a few judge's opinions and from now on SW will be judged fairly. All are amazing quilts. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow!! love all your quilt hangings, I'm so jealous, I wish I could quilt like that. I also love SW things, and yes you did spell Albuquerque correctly, I was born there. I've been to Southwest Design Fabric store and it is awesome in there. You'll find yourself staying there for hours.
    will quilt 4EVER

    I always wanted a Stucco home!!! Bugs and spiders live in log homes... lots and lots of upkeep... the last 5 gallon of 'stuff' to put on the logs (outside) cost $375 a bucket... but we do love it!! Thanks for your comments.

    Love the way you display your quilts, and also in the corner on the ladder. Of course I would be partial to your log home, since we love them and live in one also. We found ours looking for a get a way........fell in love with it.........worked on it for several years, then retired to it........I will say yours is beautiful, yes there is upkeep, but so warm and cozy. Our problem is that it was built in the late 80's, from 200+yr old logs..........so guess what...nothing is plumb, and ours tends to be a little dark..........like your lighting too.
