Last February I have shown you the antique quilt I received from USA. In the box, together with the Monkey Wrench grey quilt there was a second one : this pink quilt. It's a wonderful antique 1870s quilt, the pattern is Water Mill small scale and the size is for a queen size bed. I love everything in it, but especially this incredible green sashing. The brown backing is as well beautiful (you can see it in the fourth picture). This is such an inspiring quilt, as regards the pattern, and the combination of colors!
