I also wanted to have a larger bed to put quilts on. Then a few people blogged about how much they loved their new metal bed from IKEA. Ooh. I've never had a metal bed. I was hooked and somehow hauled one home in my Honda Fit last Sunday. A brand-new mattress set from Original Mattress Factory and now I am sleeping as comfortably as the cats are:
This quilt is a wonderfully rough star quilt backed in homespun and quilted with very thick thread that I purchased at an isolated country auction in southern Indiana just north of Louisville many years ago. Don't you love that Depression Era green?
