Have you ever noticed that quilts can be like children--they find a home that you never would have anticipated--but it works?
For instance consider the quilt--"dawn on the hill".
My husband is a school teacher so we get up very very early in the winter. After I send him off with a kiss and his coffee, I love snowshoeing to the top of a nearby hill and watching the sun rise. Did you ever listen carefully--the air seems to go quiet just before the sun breaks through. Wonderful and dramatic. Awe inspiring.
So of course I had to make a quilt to try to capture this.
But I never thought of this quilt hanging over a canopy bed that has traditional covers. Doesn't it look great though? Isn't this just meant to be?
It is at a lovely bed and breakfast just outside Shelburne Falls--do check it out. http://www.kenburnorchards.com. Larry and Susan are some of the nicest people around and who knows, you might get the room with this quilt.
What do you think?
