    Door Quilt

    A "door quilt" for my son in London - to prevent draughts!
    I was really pleased with it - he says he is!

    Gorgeous door quilt. I made one for my stairway to keep all the heat from going upstairs during the winter. It works great as I am sure yours works great too.

    Love it! Like how you positioned your open cubes to tumble down the quilt! I'm going to add some to my next OBW, I think it really adds interest.

    Great idea and a great quilt. I, too am impressed with the tumbling block placement. Good job.

    I love the way those blocks tumble down the door. This will be quite a conversation piece.

    Very nice! And masculine, too. I've never heard of a door quilt. I'm reminded of how they used portieres to prevent drafts back in the old days.

    Nice, I never thought of that; making a quilt for a drafty door. Gorgeous and what a clever usage.

    Beautiful, great idea, would work for older windows. Especially would be very useful for people living in really cold states and countries. Love the tumbling cubes.

    Love this idea! Sometimes I just hang an extra blanket over the curtain to keep in warmth - especially during power outages. This is so much nicer, it would stay up all the time!

    As soon as I read your title my brain started turning over ideas. I have two doors to go measure now!

    I have never heard of a "door quilt" but what a great idea. That would come in handy in North Dakota winters!
