Yesterday morning the temperature was 15* ~ brr-rr! Time to put the best flannel sheets on the bed for sure. I'd been putting a throw and an afghan over my light weight quilt at night and then each morning they had to be folded and put away. I needed another quilt. My new quilts had just been in the cupboard for years; why not use one of them? After all, shouldn't I enjoy the work of my hands instead of keeping them for someone else? But there's this old saying, when you sleep under a new quilt, what you dream will come true. Oh boy! I've been having some disturbing dreams, not dreams that frighten me, just ones that leave a feeling of uncertainty or dread. A lot of them include my late mother and daddy; usually I'm visiting them in a health center or something where I have to go through all these crowded, dirty little rooms before I find them. I hate that! But I decided to take a chance, and this is the quilt I put on my bed:
It is actually made of two different blocks: some kind of star block, and the court house steps block, and quilted in a clam shell design. Most of the fabrics are homespun plaids. I've always pictured this quilt in a log cabin.
Well, today I'm happy to say, I slept warm and cozy and had nary a bad dream! So I guess I'm in the clear!
