More Pink

My daughter just sent me a couple of pictures of her wedding quilt that I made, which dates from the late 1990s, because I never photographed it. Maybe, just maybe, I've been fooling myself about pink. I say "I'm not a pink lover" quite readily. And yet.
For me, a bed quilt has to be sturdy--a utility quilt--and always machine done. It can't be too complex of a design, preferably squares on the point. Diamonds. This one has held up well.
The border triangles are the blues and greens of the pillows. Kind of cheery and appropriate for the season. The reverse side is made of smaller squares in white and blues, much more sedate. So blue's my favorite color and pink, hot pink, is a close second? The evidence seems to indicate that....
