A treasure this is. And to be able to keep something that is passed down gives me an overwhelming experience :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday, your quilt is beautiful. My Sister in Law makes quilts, and I was shocked at the amount of time that she puts into them. It is a real treasure. Have a lovely Pink day.
