End of January Precipitation

I am a sunshine person but I have to admit I am gleefully happy to see big snowflakes fall out of the sky this morning. Especially since we didn't get enough snow this year. It feels like being in a snow globe!

50 Shades of Gray Quilt

One of the gifts we got for Christmas is this beautiful king size quilt from Mom (Maggie). She named it after the 50 Shades of Grey book and it is a masterpiece.
 
All of the fabrics have a pattern, even the one that looks like it is white has a mature dandelion pattern.
 
Though the layout of the squares and the little pieces of triangles may look the same, each block is very different if you take a closer look.
 
Would you guess that one of the patterns is white with black ants, LOL?? But it works.
 
My mom-in-law is so talented. Her squares are perfect and they all fit perfectly together to make this quilt and the highlight of our bedroom.
 
I didn't get to take a photo of the underside. This quilt is reversible and has bigger color blocks on the other side that is just as neat to see. When I finally get around to learn quilting, I hope to make her one just as special as the one she made for us.
