Dreaming quilt

My friend with the galahs has a rich and marvellous garden , full of food even at the tail end of winter.

 Chillis of different kinds

A tree full of juicy mandarins

And harvest stores.

We ate some of the pumpkins and I wish I had taken a photo of her pantry. There were shelves and shelves of jams and pickles and relishes and chutneys and sauces and many kinds of dried beans.

But I particularly want to share this quilt.

This quilt is a remaking of an older, worn out quilt and is covered with soft cottons from loved clothes or Op shop finds.

I loved its warmth, its softness and gentle colours. A quilt to dream under.

And I did.

Quilts should be made to dream in.
