I forgot to mention that I changed the quilt on the piano just in time for Christmas Day! Usually I am ahead of myself and all the Christmas linens are displayed from 1st December but this year has been a little behind.
The quilt previously covering the piano was the ‘Autumn’ version which I made over a year ago using two charm packs and some remnants of fabric from my stash. The patchwork is a form of faux cathedral window and a particular favourite of mine. The ‘Winter’ quilt features the same design in a different colourway and will be installed by Twelfth Night.
Meantime, we are enjoying the Christmas log cabin quilt. This is the first quilt that I made specifically with the grand piano in mind. All the strips of Christmas-themed cotton fabrics were cut by a great friend who sadly has now passed away. This quilt is a reminder of a lovely lady who enjoyed life to the full, was a super cook and needlewoman, always smiling, a friend who bore all the vicissitudes of illness with aplomb.
Regretfully, I cannot find a full photograph of the quilt, as soon as I can I will post.
