Spiritual comfort and caring can be suggested by a quilt. Old fashioned patchwork quilts often told a story, both in their materials and the way they were constructed. They therefore became heirlooms and treasured objects. Modern day quilts tend to be more functional and, therefore, the colour and patterns will have less significance. The colour, material and pattern of a quilt in a dream, however, may have more significance than the quilt itself. The quilt or duvet can often represent our need for security, warmth and love. To be aware of one in a dream, therefore, is our identification of that need. A particular quilt may have a special significance. For instance, a childhood quilt in an adult dream would suggest the need for some kind of reassurance. The entries for Colour, Fabric and Shape will enhance your understanding.
