Patchwork Quilt - Pink for February
The plan was to hang it at the head of our double bed. We painted our room a pinkish magnolia and chose carpet to compliment the quilt. When hung on the wall, it glared like a neon light. All the diamonds seemed to take on a life of their own. They appeared to move and flash. It was certainly not restful, so I took it down. For many years it was folded carefully away in a cupboard. Recently, I resurrected it and it now has pride of place on the double bed in our spare room where it looks beautiful, finally coming into its own. The colours are gorgeous, never failing to cheer me up, particularly on a dull February day.
Thank you Marilyn; thank you Mom and thank you lady from the Midwest who did the original patchwork.
