I have a quilt problem. I mean a quilt collection. 

I used to drape the quilts over the upstairs banister railing. Then I decided that looked a bit sloppy. 

Several weeks ago I bought a fireplace grate at the auction for $4. I had absolutely no idea what I would do with it. But it was metal and had a graceful curve to it. For some reason, I felt compelled to bid on it. I brought it home and had my Aha! moment. 

The grate is now holding the quilts and afghans and matalasse spreads and fleece throws in my bedroom next to Grace. Just the thing that I didn’t know I needed! I love to repurpose items in unexpected ways. 

Yours, Merryweather
