I can't bear to think how long this patchwork quilt has been hanging on the stairs at The Brown House! The simple, traditional Kaleidoscope blocks are all pieced in hard-wearing upholstery fabrics, for the very simple reason that it was intended as a sofa throw for a very large Yellow Labrador with deplorable habits. It's tied rather than quilted. However, my partner thought it was wasted on Bruno, so next time I looked it was hanging on the wall. He now claims it's too high to be removed - says he can't reach it any longer. :) So there it remains, year after year, gathering dust, which I occasionally try to hoover off. It's on a North-facing wall so hasn't faded as much as I'd expect.
