Quilt Tent Fort

Quilt Tent Fort

My husband and I hosted a gathering of friends at our home this weekend to wish some friends well as they are preparing to move and start a new adventure in their lives. We are sad to see such lovely people move away, but we are also incredibly thankful for the times and memories we have been fortunate enough to have with them. During the party, a few of my quilts transformed a portion of our living room into an amazing fort. Although I did not really fit, it was a lot of fun to crawl around under the quilts and watch young minds and imaginations hard at play.

    I don’t remember having quilts growing up but we did have sleeping bags! I’m sure if there was a quilt my mum would have hidden it well!

  16. Oh I remember doing this in the living room as a kid. My dad used to get 2 x 4s and industrial clamps to make a fortress! Great times, glad kids today are still using their imaginations!

  17. I remember making a mess of my dad’s living room with dining chairs and brooms and whatever we could get our hands on. Fun.
