    Your posted picture is wonderful, in the avatar it looked more like the diamonds were set with grey and blue sashing, with the picture enlarged, I could see the green and lavendar - absolutely glorious, such a treasure!

    Ummm---is there a picture? I apologize. I hadn't read far enough. I get excited and open my mouth too soon. Then it's open mouth, insert foot. Yes, the quilt is great. And what a lovely gesture!
