My mom loves to make things out of wood and asked what I'd like to have. I told her a cabinet to hold my fat quarters. Well, here is what she made me!!! It is SO BEAUTIFUL!! She hand carves the pieces individually. I think it is called Intarsia. (Probably spelling that wrong!)

I need to spend more time arranging the fat quarters but for now they are just in there.

enjoy!

Fabulous cabinet! Hope she signed and dated it - it will surely be in your family for a long time.
