Quilt

nineteen-thirties fabrics, sewn together by long ago hands
keep out the winter's breath
as we snuggle deep beneath velours, brocades and wools
softened by age and love.

That quilt looks so cozy and it's inviting a good nights sleep. Hope you had sweet dreams!

Nothing better than snuggling up underneath an old quilt.

I can see we all share the experience and comfort of a well-loved quilt! I really love this one and have had it for about 10 years. It needs repaired--again--but I'll wait til spring when I can bear to take it off the bed long enough to sew up the loose seams. My research indicates that this was probably made in the 20's or 30's, based on the types of fabric and the crazy quilt style which was really popular in the early part of the 20th century. I've looked for another one but my goodness, they're pricey!

Love quilts, working on three for granddaughters birthdays in the near future.
Home comforts are the best.

I hear you, Barbara. Mine are not family heirlooms-only my grandmother made quilts and hers were reallt comforts, tied and not quilted. We wore them out when we were young. So mine are ones I've found along the way in junk shops, auctions, etc. But by the time I pass them on, they will have our memories attached :)

Brighid, I have never tried to quilt. I hope you will post photos of yours. What a loving gift.

I love quilts. I have one hanging over our bed on a wall quilt rack. I told Charley last night that we need to put in on our bed. He said, 'No, that one is just to look at.' I like to use quilts, they are so comfy.
I love yours.
