It was time to change the quilt. Our winter quilt has nice cosy wool batting and is so deliciously warm over the cold months of winter. With fluffy flannelette sheets on the bed too I am toasty warm, just as I like it. With the weather warming up it was time for a change. The winter cat quilt in pink and grey was getting grubby and needed a wash, especially as our cat Muffy liked to snuggle up on the same part of the bed night after night. As soon as a nice breezy day came along that quilt was off the bed, carefully washed, and flapping in the breeze. The pale pink background fabric has faded over time, as have some of the cat blocks, but this quilt is just so lovely and warm with the wool batting.
Our anniversary is 5th November, so I like to have our special anniversary quilt on the bed by then. This one was made three years ago for our 25th Anniversary, and is full of hearts in various sizes and shapes and stars. It always looks so fresh and bright after all those different hues of grey cats on the bed over the winter.
Then after a month or so I will no doubt have yet another quilt change. That’s what happens when one has an assortment of bed quilts, after all that work that goes into the making, we want to give them all a turn. What do other quilters do? Do you ring the changes with the seasons too?
