Treasure Tuesday: My Grandma's Quilt

On Tuesdays I'm going to try to post something I have that's handmade, old, or that I just love. My grandma was a prolific quilter and this is the quilt I got when she died a few years ago. It's really almost like a throw, just the width and length of a twin bed top--but it's the one I reach for when I'm tired or sick. It's made with tiny tucks in each block, so the extra fluffiness makes it extraordinarily warm. Wrapping up in this quilt is like getting a hug from my Grandma.

By the way, I feel certain that Treasure Tuesday isn't unique to me. I probably read about it on a craft blog sometime, somewhere. So I'm not stealing the idea, I just don't remember where it came from!
