Needing a new quilt....

Today's color challenge was the same colors in my curtains that are on my bedroom windows. Before my Grandmother passed away, she updated her own bedroom set for BonPapa. She was dying of cancer and wanted him to have a manly bedroom for the rest of his own life. She gave me one of her old bed/curtain sets since we both have 3 windows in our rooms and queen beds. The curtains are perfect for my buttery yellow room. Saffron, burgundy and hunter green curtains with some blues and greens and ochres in the flowers too. When we got a King sized bed, we kept the curtains but have yet to find a similar colored comforter.

I hope I am as thoughtful of others when I know my end is nearing. Here is my card for today's challenge:

nice card, how great your gm is together again with your gpa. a new comforter-king size-sounds like a BIG challenge but it can't be made out of cardstock. lol
