I really ended up liking this quilt! My husband and middle daughter both said that they really liked it too.
Boy, what a dry quilt description this was! I just wanted to get in details. I don't really know why. LOL
If you've made it this far, to liven things up, I'll tell you that, yes, we did feel the earthquake yesterday. We're about 40 miles from the epicenter, so it wasn't too bad. We felt the initial shake, and then the ground just kept move - like it was rolling. I've been through many earthquakes, but this was the first time I experience that rolling motion. And I swear it lasted for about 45 seconds - which isn't a long time, unless you're experiencing an earthquake (or some other such disaster). The girls were home with me and thought it was cool. That was the first earthquake that really remember feeling. My son was at school and they evacuated the school. My husband was at work - and get this for practicality. He said he was in the cafeteria eating lunch when they felt the earthquake. He knew what was coming, so he scarfed down the rest of his lunch really fast. And sure enough, they evacuated the buildings. He said a bunch of people around him were saying, "what should I do with my lunch?", but his was already finished. I guess this is one of times when it paid for him to learn to eat really fast when he was in the Marine Corp.
