What does it mean when you dream about a quilt?

A patchwork quilt may indicate the many parts of the dreamer’s life that have been pieced together and stitched into a cover or skin to provide protection and warmth for body and soul.

It is usually something warm and pretty that we cover ourselves with for comfort. The different parts of a quilt may represent the harmonious coexistence of many aspects of your life. Your unconscious may be comforting you in this dream by saying, “You are doing a good job. Keep going!” If you lack comfort and harmony then this dream may be compensatory and providing you with that which you need more of in daily life.
