Quilt Gorgeousness

A parcel arrived today containing a wonderful surprise — a beautiful patchwork quilt made for me by a friend of mine's mother. She knows I like colorful things and decided to make me this, and isn't this simply the most gorgeous, colorful quilt you've ever seen?

 I'm thrilled. I spread it out on my bed, and took a few photos of it. It's not a quilt, she says, "it's just a throw" — but it nearly covers the whole bed, so I'm calling it a quilt. The sun was shining through my bay window, so the front part looks a little paler and the back a little dark, but it's gorgeous all over — bold and colorful and geometric and asymmetrical — all of which I really like.

It's a thing of beauty and it makes me smile every time I look at it.

Helen, thank you so much.
