A quilt can represent the need for security in both positive and negative ways. If you cover yourself with a quilt to be warm, you might examine if you are feeling a sense of coldness around you because you are remaining distant from others. If you are making a quilt, you are taking steps to incorporate security in your life. A blanket can also show how you may be covering or protecting something that needs to be explored. If it is the blanket or quilt of your childhood, you may need to examine whether your fear of intimacy stems from the type of love you received as a child. The dream is showing your desire to bring warmth into your life.
