Donny and Marie


You might be surprised that this is my quilt.  The label on the back (I used to do labels) says 2002.  It hangs in my family room above the couch.   I still love this quilt.

Mr. Creations took it down so I could wash it.  I love the crinkly-ness.  My family room is still "a little bit country" while the living room is "a whole lotta rock n roll."  Anyone remember that Donny and Marie song?

Well, I love your Donny and Marie quilt! Do you know that they are the #1 show in Vegas? Still haven't gone to see them. What do you mean you USED to do labels??!!

Tastes change but coziness doesn't! Love this.

Of course we never missed the Donny & Marie show when we were kids...

The quilts that we did early on does have a sense of innocence to them. Simple prints and shades of colors that belong to another time.. your quilt is warm and beautiful, Stephanie :)

With a little bit of motown in between? I wasn't a fan but for some reason I know the first few lines to this song.
I am a fan though of this quilt!

Of course I remember Donnie and Marie. In fact, I used to live near their homes in Utah. Just glad you didn't pick up on the purple socks theme.

I see you all over this quilt, Stephanie - right down to the dots! I love the song and remember Donny and Marie back when they were just little tots singing on stage with their family!
Cheers!

That is such a lovely quilt Stephanie.
It was the country look that tempted me to try working with quilting fabrics. I still find that look very warm and inviting.

I remember the sond well.

Isn't it amazing how our tastes change over the years? I wonder what inspires us to do that?

Your quilt looks like a very cozy one to snuggle under on those long winter nights.
