    DDIL cried when she opened the quilt - all I needed

    I was so thrilled when my DDIL opened her quilt. My husband also said it was so beautiful - he had not seen it before I wrapped it. That made my Christmas. the picture does not do it justice. It is king size with flying geese as the border. The back is damask so it is reversible. Got Quilts did an awesome job quilting it for me. Enjoy.

    It is lovely.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
