Mackintosh quilts and window shades


Dorothy Wood's Rennie Mackintosh Inspirations in Embroidery was sitting on the craft shelf at the used bookstore last night. I really just bought it for the cover - it reminded me of you, Cristina! Think of a huge quilt of pink velvet covered with those roses!

My favorite embroidery "inspiration" is the Sophie Wilk quilt based on a Mackintosh painting of houses. The organdie window shade stitched like a stained glass window is a good idea too.
