Quilted Christmas

 My grandmother quilted...
The beds were draped with hand quilted quilts...
And...
Growing up, we snuggled under the warmth of the love of the quilter...
When the quilts were worn...
The dog was given the torn, worn quilt for a blanket...
I guess that is why ...
I am drawn to any quilt...
In perfect condition...
Or...
Tattered with love...

 

I was the youngest of five cousins...
And...
My Grandmother quilted each of us a quilt....

I let company sleep under it...
But...
I don't want it tattered for the dog...
So...
This year, I draped it around my Christmas tree...

The warmth of the Season is always in the heart of the home....

Blessings, Becky
