Word Of The Day Challenge—Quilt by Word Of The Day Challenge

Quilt

I absolutely love quilts. Real quilts not those chintzy one’s you buy from big box stores or such, but 100% cotton quilts.

My Aunt lives in Missouri, and they have quilt lottos there. A quilt lotto is kinda of like BINGO except you win handmade quilt as prizes. Over the years my Aunt has won quite a few quilts. She has been super lucky.

My Grandmother lived in Missouri before she passed as well. My Grandmother LOVEDDDDD to play BINGO and of course, the quilt Lottos were included. The quilt Lottos are only at certain times of the year. Before she passed I had been up to visit my family in Missouri.

This was when I was in my late teens. I was lucky enough to have my visit at quilt lotto time…woohoo. Needless to say my Mom, Grandmother, Aunt, and I spent the day playing the lotto. It was a great day, even if no one won any quilts that day.

Last year out of the blue my Aunt sent me one of the quilts she had won. I was so excited. I have it hanging in my hallway on a quilt holder that I have hanging on the wall.

  1. I enjoyed reading your post. There’s something so special about quilts. I don’t have the time or patience to make them but always admire the handicraft of those who do and I love the one you’ve shared on your post.
