    The only quotes I can think of from the movie don't fit with how I feel about this quilt. It is beautiful!

    This quilt sure as shootin' IS beautiful (as was Vivian Leigh... IMHO one of the most beautiful women who wever lived). I remember when this fabric came out... I wondered how it could be used. Well, this beauty shows how to use it to perfect effect! Kudos to your folks for a real charmer!
