Several weeks ago, I was cleaning out the closet in my guest bedroom because my sister was coming for a visit. I thought she deserved 12 inches of rod to hang her clothing. While I was cleaning out and organizing the closet, I brought down all my quilts and refolded them.

I came across a quilt I had made six years ago. I had custom made this quilt to fit on our bed, so it was a peculiar size. I thought this was a good time to start using it and took it to our bedroom — the quilt on our bed at the time was made more than 12 years ago and was looking a little tired. Once I put the new quilt on the bed, the whole room came to life. I wondered why I took so long to use this new quilt.
