Cakestand quilt, C19-20, Illinois, USA

One of the things I love about being a quilter, is that despite the snow and cold, I'm always toasty warm at night because of the quilt on my bed. Sometimes it's a quilt that I've made, but currently it's this beauty - a Cakestand quilt from the late 19th / early 20th century which I recently bought. It's called a cutter quilt, because several blocks have perished fabrics, but it's still gorgeous, with superb hand quilting and has come up a treat after a recent wash.

So, this thought has inspired a Hometown competition. Follow my feed on Instagram or Facebook (just click on the links at the bottom of the page) and like the competition post. Then simply post a photo of your own bed and quilt with the hashtag #quiltonmybed. I'll pick a winner on 31/3/18 and you'll receive a £20 Hometown gift voucher to spend as you like.

T&C: The quilt can be one that you've sewn or that you've bought from another quilter (please then credit the maker) or an old quilt. And if you swap quilts mid-month, you can enter again! All entrants give permission for their photo to be published on the Hometown website, Facebook page and/or Instagram page.
