THE SIMPLE BLUE QUILT




my simple blue quilt i found at a flea market that is hand quilted makes my heart swell. 
oh, their is nothing to it, no grand show piece other than i know she was well used by the owner before me and will be used my me on beds, couches and the ground.
my favorite kind of quilt, one that is used because so much love will go into it, being part of the family.
i do not own one show quilt nor have i ever made a show quilt. no, no, oh no, i make and use my quilts on beds, in the trailer, on picnics and children when they return home. not to mention all the quilts i have made for babies soon to land on the planet, family and friends. 
quilts are special, they keep us warm, comfort us when ill or just needing down time in front of the tv.
quilts mean home to me!
the comfort of a good worn quilt is a simple pleasure in my life.
