Is there anything better than curling up under a quilt and reading a book? A cup of tea, and a cat on my lap add to the mood. The only thing I need to complete the perfection is to have it be one of my Mom’s quilts I’m snuggled up under, made for me with love.
A while ago I wrote on Mortal Muses about how my life story can be tracked by the quilts that have been made for me, by my Mom and other relatives. Just this week a new chapter in the story was added, with this quilt of bright colors that arrived in the mail. My Mom and I chose this fabric to match my studio when she visited in October, and she took it home to create a new work of art for me to snuggle under. A quilt that marks the move home from Italy in my creative journey.
She thinks it’s too bright, but I love it. It makes me happy and cheerful to curl up under this quilt, with all of the colors I love. Perfect for these short grey days and long dark nights – colorful and cozy!
