    I'm not sure about your agenda, but I can tell you that I never had a quilt wrapped around me until I made one. It is special to me becuase it is made from the scraps of quilts that I made for others.

    I have never had a quilt but one I made. It was a mourning quilt. I use it, but just doesn't have warm snuggly feelings for me......

There are lots easy patterns on line, you can find some of them right here in the tutorial section.
    Thank You! :mrgreen:

    Watch garage sales, thrift stores, estate sales and auctions. The old quilts that I have are ones my grandmother and my mother made and I wouldn't part with them even for Bill Gates money.
    Thank you! :mrgreen:

    I leave my bedroom window open in the winter, and the air turned down in the summer, just so I can cover up to my chin with my quilt.
    I always leave a lot of turn-over on the top sheet so the quilt will stay clean longer. Don't want to get body oils on my quilt.
