Oh, What a Beautiful Morning!

Do you remember the quilt I'd named "Good Morning Starshine!"?

When I posted a picture of it on Facebook, my darling niece admired it, and I decided it would be the gift for her upcoming wedding. For some reason, it got me to thinking about her dad (I wrote about all of that here) and after that, I started thinking of the quilt as "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning!" instead of "Good Morning Starshine."

I gave the quilt to Karen and Craig recently with clear instructions that it was not to be hung on a wall, but rather to sleep under, make love on, or cover a table with (with laundering in between as appropriate).

Just look what Karen has done with it! I couldn't be more delighted!

Beautiful! I have been looking for these plates on-line--I have some but need to fill in my set. Would you ask your d-i-l where to find them? I would be so appreciative.

What a fantastic table setting! She sure has the dishes to set off the quilt! (Or your quilt has set off her dishes!)

That is what we all strive for - the appreciation of the love we give - I love quilts as table toppers and she has set a beautiful table - it just makes me happy. Judy C
