The Lodger – Framed!

Back in August, I was commissioned to make a small quilt inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s 1926 film, The Lodger. Being a bit of a fan of its star, Ivor Novello, I was happy to agree, and in my earlier post, Stitching with Ivor Novello, I wrote about how some of my lettered quilts are inspired by silent film intertitles.

The quilt was finished, packed up and delivered to its new owner in September. Now, if you make things, it is always interesting to see what happens to them once they are passed on. Walking into someone’s home and seeing your quilt, or picture, or ornament in its new setting is one of the pleasures of making.

The Lodger quilt was commissioned by Nathalie Morris, the brains behind the delicious Food on Film blog, and a dab hand at making Alfred Hitchcock’s Quiche Lorraine. Nathalie got in touch with me yesterday to say that she had arranged for The Lodger quilt to be framed. She sent me a lovely photograph of it, and here it is:
