 I love this color of pink, so soothing and cool when its up against this awesome pear color below.

 Spread the word, we could start a whole new competition! Can imagine how many ways the wily, crafter-quilters out there who can make almost anything!
Let's show the world that we can reuse and refashion in all sorts of ways. Fellow bloggers, this is your chance, even if you don't know how to sew or quilt?

All the best,
