The Haunted House Quilt       Copyright 2006 Kristin Miller


Description of The Haunted House Quilt:
A quilted and appliquéd Victorian house, quite spooky looking, with four turrets and a whale-weathervane.

A red-haired woman stands in the open arched doorway. Her red hair is created of French knots..

The stormy night sky is made of blue and black hand-dyed fabric, with bare tree branches and bats flying, silhouetted against moon.

There is a dark garden and graveyard in foreground with a fence and falling-apart gate. A cat is sitting by gate.

This quilt is beautifully detailed, made with hand-dyed and hand-painted fabrics. It is lavishly stitched and quilted, both by hand and machine.

This is an original design, one-of-a-kind, and very recognizable. It was a custom ordered quilt.

Size: This is a double-bed sized,  quilt, 75"x95". 
The central pictorial panel shown here is approximately 54"x75" and it is surrounded by a ten-inch outer 
border of dark grey fabric

Websites that help find lost quilts:

My quilt is certainly not alone in being lost. Many extraordinary quilts are missing--lost or stolen or undelivered. Luckily there are several websites that post photos and descriptions of these quilts, so that the public can be on the look-out for them.

 www.lostquilt.com 
The Lost Quilt Come Home website shows photos of lost and stolen quilts and gives information on protecting quilts through labels, documentation, appraisals, and quilt care. There is valuable advice on shipping, exhibiting, copyright, and almost anything else you need to know to protect your precious quilts.

The Soft Expressions site focuses on computer quilting, but has dedicated part of their website to postings of lost quilts, with photos and descriptions.

Red Dawn's eclectic website has listings and photos of lost and stolen quilts

Beautiful Quilts Stolen from Italian Exhibit

I just had an email from Frieda Oxenham, a Scottish art quilter, who had a very beautiful quilt stolen while in a traveling quilt exhibit in Italy. Four other quilts were also stolen.
