I like the cheeriness of this quilt, it actually makes me smile. The quality of the cotton is rough but it adds to the overall personality of the quilt. The patterns and colors that appear in the photo are not what is true to the quilt, but I like the quilt as it is anyway. I actually made this my bedspread in a queen and the sprawl of it works, giving me a new character to the room. It corresponds well with the naomi patchwork, a garden of flowers.
