Mundane Monday: Worn Quilt

The quilt has lost it’s sharp lines and crisp colors but old quilts have their own soft beauty.quilt

The faded colors a testament to the love the quilt has weathered.

The hole in the corner a memory of a long gone puppy.

The frayed fabric a sign that the quilt is good for beds, picnics and blanket forts.

While the edges, still bright, bring a memory of when it was crisp lined and fresh, a graduation gift made by my mother-in-law before she was my mother-in-law.

While I still have a hard time applying the label “mundane” to my things I am enjoying the Mundane Monday photo challenge. Click through the link to see more amazingly un-mundane photos!

  1. Truly lovely. The muted colors drew me in — that’s what I really like about old quilts — the worn look.

    There is nothing mundane about you, my friend. But I do like how you’ve twisted Mundane Mondays to be this-could-be-mundane-but-its-not Mondays 😉

    And, my favorite thing about old quilts is that they are soft enough to conform to your body. They have a property that cools you in warm weather, and warms you in cool weather. And, most were handmade with love 🙂

    I guess we all cherish the hand made gift given by a loved one. My husbands grandmother gave us a hand made rug we had for many years but unfortunately was ruined in a fire.

    None of our belongings can ever be mundane. There is always a memory in there somewhere, and memories are never ordinary…

    The quilt may be old and worn, but it is not mundane.
