    I love, love, love it! It's so scrappy and old fashioned looking. It's a great variation (color-wise) of the GFG.

    I love it. They call some foods comfort foods. This looks like a comfort quilt to me. The one you pull up over yourself to warm you up, make you feel better and bring on good memories!

    This looks like an heirloom quilt that has been passed down through the years. Gorgeous quilt- and so sweet of you to name it after your grandmother.
