I’ve always enjoyed spotting quilts in movies and on TV, so it was only natural that once I started my blog, I would write about my ‘quilt spots’ on the big and little screen. I have enjoyed writing my regular feature, maybe even more than some of the movies I’ve ended up watching!!
There are plenty of lists out there with names of movies where quilts are seen or featured. My quilt spot is not like that. It’s a review of movies or TV series I’ve watched, either by myself or with my family, where a quilt has appeared.
I don’t go out of my way to watch movies where I know a quilt will be featured… I know, for example, that ‘Stepmom’ has some wonderful quilts in it; the last time I watched this movie must have been over a year ago as I haven’t watched it since writing my blog. Likewise, ‘How to Make an American Quilt’ is another one I know features quilts (obviously!!) and one I should watch again at some point.
But as this post is a summary of all the movies and TV series I have watched where I’ve spotted a quilt or two, it is a bit of a list – but if you would like some narrative or background to why we watched these films or programmes, what was spotted, and some form of critique, then please click on the links to read more.
I hope you’ve enjoyed following my ‘spots’ this year and invite you to join me in spotting more in 2019. Remember to share these with me by leaving a comment on my blog.
Here’s hoping 2019 will be full of quilt spots!!
