Stunning vintage quilts

Hello all

I could not resist showing you all some beautiful quilts that hang at a hotel in America; The Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Boston.  I took these pictures two years ago and when I was sorting out the pictures on my laptop I came across these that I snapped!  The quilts hang on every floor of the hotel, behind glass, and hang in the huge stairwells too.  I remember getting into some strange positions to try and take the pictures!  My pictures are not as good as I would have liked, but I would have got told off if I had tried to suspend from a bannister for the best shot!

There must have been 50 at least and the oldest one I could find was from around 1800 if my memory serves me correctly. I was wandering all around the hotel looking at them.  Some photos did not come out too well as lighting in the corridors was ambient!

Anyway I thought today you might like a little look.  Have a wonderful weekend, whatever you are doing.

This is one of my favourites!

 
Look at the detail..... I aspire to being able to produce something like it!
