Aunt Martha’s Quilts

My Aunt Martha surprised us all with new quilts. No special occasion—she had just been wanting to make them for us! The kids and I were all thrilled. There is nothing like snuggling up in soft, warm, homemade goodness. And as we have all been fighting off a cold virus this week, they couldn’t have come at a better time!

IMG_4209Gem got a quilt with princesses.
Caveman got a quilt with Spiderman. Juju got a quilt with cats, balls, and Thomas. Of all the kids, I think he may have been the most excited! IMG_4218 
Mojo got a quilt with horses, and Sunshine got a quilt with bright colors. And as you can see in these pics, she also made pillow cases for the kids.

Greg and I got throws in bright, funky, tie-dyed colors to match our den. I have so appreciated snuggling up in my recliner under mine. It makes my “cozy spot” even more cozy.

And I originally forgot to add a pic of Gigi’s quilt! So here is an update…

Thank you so much, Aunt Martha!


  1. Very beautiful.. Something to cherish forever... Nothing as meaningful as something that is handmade by a family member.

  2. The quilts are beautiful! Your kids are getting so big now Paula <3
