Family in the Pink

Daddy Wore Pink

That’s the name of this quilt Valerie designed for a guild challenge to use at least three sizes of flying geese.  We love the story behind the inspiration; every memory can be an inspiration one day!

“Oakshott reminds me of the suit fabric my dad wore, and back when it wasn’t popular for men to wear pink daddy did. Mama would buy his clothes to wear to church, and he’d always get compliments.”
