    Nora Roberts quilt

    My niece is a big Nora Roberts fan, has read most of her books and even has a license plate referring to it. She's moving to a new house and this will be her housewarming gift. I machine-embroidered about 90 titles on the spines of the "books," have a few other items, a 3D plant, a photo, and an heirloom figurine. This was SO much fun to make!!!

    How unique!!
    ... the books, the photo and I suspect the plant and figurine might have some significance to her as well.

    What a nice personal touch ... it`ll mean a lot to her.

    You are the best aunt ever. What a labor of love. Would love to see her expression when she receives it.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!
