It’s SOOO Me!

I know it was a Give-Away and it could have gone to ANYONE but it was made for Me!  I just know it!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I unwrapped this lovely little quilt….it doesn’t look anything like the Give Away quilt from Mary’s on Quilt Hollow.  It MUCH nicer!! Why do quilts ALWAYS look better in ‘real life’? 

How did Mary from Quilt Hollow know that my living room is done in all the colours in this table topper?  Don’t believe me?…..Well then check this out-

The green in the quilt is the exact same green as the couch!  How did she know?  And see how the quilt looks purple well it’s not- it’s the same burgundy as the area rugs!  See-P1030899

It even looks good on the floor!  But don’t worry that’s not where it’s going…

It looks great in the dinning room too…same colours in the area rug here too! Decisions, decisions…

So I know this was a Give Away and it could have gone to anyone…but I think it was meant for me!!  How did Mary know??    I think it has come home!  Thanks so much Mary!  I LOVE it!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Hand Quilting!

I don't know, I think it would look better in my house, lol. Quilts and rugs are always much better in person and that one is perfect for your colors.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Holiday.

Paulette - check my post today. But make sure you're sitting down. You are going to FREAK out! And, if this story turns out not to be true, then I'm going to FREAK out, because how many retired teacher Paulette's with 3 daughters living in C.H. can there be?

p.s. thanks for the very sweet post you did when the thread catcher arrived! Young...I love it!
