When I made this quilt for my cousin as a wedding gift, the only stipulation I sent along with it was to use it. Don't hang it on the wall, don't put it on a shelf. Use it. Get stains on it, wash it, use it.
All this love has, no doubt, added to the charm of this quilt. The ripples and softness is exactly what a quilt should be.
I think I'm going to start doing more of the same. What's your quilt philosophy?
