For some time now, I've been in the market for a new quilt for my bed. It's not that I lacked for bedding; far from it in fact. I rather enjoy bed linens and have built up something of a collection.

I'd had my eye on a couple of quilts I liked but the Pottery Barn catalog that arrived in July turned up the perfect quilt. So now I sleep under the mantle of a new quilt; one that represents a break both figurative and real from a past life that still confuses me.
