Our geothermal unit keeps our house toasty warm. To top the heating unit off, we have panels walls wrapped around our timber frame, that are 4 inches of styrofoam encased on both side in OSB. It stays a constant 72 degrees inside. Yet I feel the need to add another blanket on the bed.
My layering goes like this; sheet, white flannel blanket, and a quilt. The first is a quilt made by the blacksmith's grandmother. It was given to him before we were married in 1970. I think it's a version of a postage stamp quilt.
I next layered my Aunt Faye quilt. You can read all about it here. It is a beautiful Dresden plate that she hand appliqued and hand quilted for her BFF. RIP Aunt Faye, I miss you.
Last I put my red, white, and blue quilt on. I made this quilt shortly after 9/11/2002. It is almost all paper pieced. It contains over 2500 pieces of fabric. It has 49 stars (I know there are 50 states, but I just didn't work it out that way), 3 eagles, many hearts and some checkerboarding. It too was hand quilted.
Now I think I will put on some flannel jammies and head for bed!
