Cozy Quilts. . .

It's getting much cooler here in Oklahoma. If you're like me, you like to stay warm & cozy while napping, reading, or watching TV. What better way to get cozy than with a quilt? There is something so comforting about a quilt, especially antique quilts.

Here are some quilts in my upstairs linen closet just waiting to be used.

These antique quilts are really tattered, I think they look pretty in this basket in the laundry room.
I keep this antique quilt that belonged to Grandma Minnie folded on top of this chest for guests to use when they spend the night. I made the quilted kitty for Grandma many years ago. When she passed away I brought it home and gave it a place to live in the guest room.

This beautiful blue quilt was my Great-Grandma Berger's. I took it to college with me at Oklahoma State, it kept me warm in my dorm room at Willard Hall.

I even think pictures of quilts give warmth to a room. I stitched this way back in the '80s.

Another cross stitch creation by me. Wow, if I tried to do a project like this today I'd have to buy one of those fancy lighted, magnifying lamps. Maybe my eye sight is bad because of the many cross stitch projects I made for so many years, or maybe it's because of the thousands of papers I graded for 30 years under fluorescent lighting. LOL!! ;>)

This little guy lives in the guest room along with kitty.

I sewed this 8 x 10 mini quilt for Halloween many years ago when Bobby was a little guy.

Hope you have a quilt to cozy up with when the wind starts to howl!

Wishing you a fantastic Friday, until next time take care!

So pretty. We only have one that Paul's great grandmother made. It's a treasure. You are lucky to have all of those. Love your cross stitching too...I'm with you, can't see to do that any more.

All of them are beautiful and I agree, quilts give such a cozy feeling! Looking at your pictures, it makes me want to go make some hot cocoa, the perfect thing to drink snuggled up in a quilt.

My favorite one was the blue one, the one from your great-grandma.

Many sweet blessings!
