Check Out This...

...Gorgeous blanket!!
 My mother-in-law made this beautiful quilt for our bed
for Christmas.  She told us last spring that she would like to make everyone 
a large quilt and that we needed to let her know what fabric
we would like her to use.  I told my husband about it and then promptly forgot.

Until August, when she came to visit and mentioned it again.
So we headed to the fabric store that night, along with my sister-in-law who
had also forgotten all about the offer.

I went around and around the cotton section of the store, trying to decide on what
we wanted.  Since we haven't ever decorated our own room & Kidney Bean said
he didn't care, the world was, if you will,
my oyster.

I think I picked out at least 4 different combinations, but had a difficult time
deciding which one I like the most.  And then I decided to go with the 
pink combo.  I love it.
At first, my mother-in-law was like, "It's your quilt.  You can have
what you want."  She didn't like the combination of fabrics
that I had chosen.  But after she cut the squares & we laid them
out together, she started to really like it.

My mom sent us the pillow cases and the throw pillows, 
which she made out of the same fabrics.

Here's a closer picture.
And it's super warm.  We put it on our bed the night we got
it in the mail & it's been nice and snuggly ever since.
Thanks, Mom!
Both of you!
