Gloria Vanderbilt Quilt

I haven't completed any projects that I can blog about since my return from South Africa to celebrate significant birthdays of family members.

My brother has a vast library of approximatelly 10,000 books of various topics.  Art books makes up a large part of his collection.  He showed me a book by Wendy Goodman about Gloria Vanderbilt.

Style icon Gloria Vanderbilt dabbled in interior design  for a period and this is her take on quilting.
She had the entire room decorated with quilts - walls, ceiling, furniture, even the floor had quilts glued down and coated with polyurethane.

Here she is wearing a coat to match her room also.

And now for some music.... Lisa McClowry - Come Dancing.

It'a a favourite song of one of my family members dedicated to me...
