    Not for the faint of heart! Looks like another one of Eleanor Burns' "Quilt-In-A-Day" projects!! 8-) Cleaning my photo section, came across these. Naturally, they're from a shop in California! Seems like $1800 was the price - can't remember - too long ago but you'll never know where your quilt might end up!!

    I wouldn't even think about sitting on them! Too pretty, but not at all usable.

    Can you imagine seeing hubby come in from working on the car and heading for "the sofa"???? (Not that mine would, but the image DID run thru my mind!! :lol: )

    Those are beautiful!

    OK, I'm over here drooling over these.
    They are beautiful!
    If I was single with no kids, I would love to have either! :lol:

    I have thought of that. They are beautiful. However, how sturdy, or how well do you think it will last? It would have to be a showpiece and not an everyday piece of furniture.

    My dogs, too. Or at least one of the cats would do their nails! Sure are pretty though.

    We're gonna have fun with this one! Laughing already at the image of hubby sitting down after working with the grease guns on the car!

    Don't you hate those things "for looks only" don't touch!!! Love the way they did the dresden and that caught my interest! Just my luck, the dogs would scratch it to pieces!

    Can you say plastic covers? LOL What a neat thing to do with quilts! Of course, it would not match one thing in my decor, I would have to get all new furniture! Imagine having that in your sewing room, though.

    The scene:
    Dust motes dancing through sunny windows.
    Two women in black dresses with mousy brown hair pulled back in buns.

    First woman: A cup of tea, my dear?
    Second woman: Oh thank, you.
    First woman: One lump or two?

    I want both for my house-to-be! Maybe one of these days.....let's dream on ladies...

    :mrgreen:

    G, you are so funny! I think about the woman in Texas who walked in the jewelry store and asked for the biggest diamond they had! She had it placed in her dog's collar! She would have these in her mansion! :thumbup:

    they are sooo pretty I would put them in my bedroom and use them to read on only no food or drinks of course. I would forbid anyone else to sit down though. I would be careful but no-one else would thats the problem they are for looks only. lol

    What a wonderful idea! I would not want to use them. But then, my mom has a cane bottom chair in her bedroom that no one is allowed to sit on. (It came across the Atlantic about the time of the Mayflower...)

    Laughing because it's so true! We had an antique cane rush bench! So true! They are for looks only!

    These would be pretty in a guest room. I hope they used Scotchgard on them.

    Seems like a waste of two perfectly good quilts, IMHO.

    Those are so pretty that I wouldn't want to sit on them and wear them out.

    Beautiful pieces of furniture. Would have to be in a room that got no use - maybe behind a glass wall.

    I want one in the conservatory, please, and the other in the sitting room.

    I would have them and I would use them. Just not DH or animals. I like them.
