Your last image of the patchwork quilt with that same pattern centered on the pillows is quite striking.

Wouldn't it be quite cheerful, quite dramatic to have a seasonal set if the company makes the equivalents in summer, fall and winter colors and patterns?

I like the end of winter and the season of colds, that's for sure!
