This quilt is from my mom... it is our wedding gift. OK, so our 10th anniversary is this fall, but in her defense, it did take me a while to pick out a pattern. It is very dark, but we have a large bedroom, and WOW, do I love love love it! I don't think the pictures do it justice. We need better pillows and sheets now (heck, we need a better bed) but this will do. It looks much better in our room then I though. Oh, and now we need new drapes too. Sigh.
