Putting some bedding to bed
Thirty-two years is probably a decent lifespan for a down quilt. I had sewn up dozens and dozens of little leaks but there would still be an errant bit of fluff or two or three each morning. The cotton exterior was becoming like netting.
A quick check online a few weeks ago informed me king size down quilts started in the $200 range. Ow. But Kohl’s had them for $89.99. After-Christmas pricing, I guess—plus this being far southern Arizona where demand for warm bedding isn’t as great.
So why a king size quilt on a twin bed? I love being all bunched up in my bedding.
I’ll take the old quilt to Goodwill and let them decide whether it still has some life—or feathers—in it.
UPDATE: First night with the new quilt. Excellent.
