I caught a TV rerun of Nanny McPhee the other night and just had to watch it again to see the children’s bedroom or, more specifically, their bedding.
The story is enchanting and the cast and sets inspired, so no chore there. But that bedding makes me want to open an orphanage.
There’s a log cabin quilt, a tumbling blocks quilt, a star quilt of sorts, an afghan square crochet blanket, tartan blankets, lace-edged pillow slips, whitework and cutwork pillow cases… even the curtains are patchwork.
Stitchers inevitably notice quilts, crochet blankets and the like when watching movies. But the measles scene in Nanny McPhee is sensory overload – in the most delightful way.
