    my mother in law sent me these fabrics for my birthday in 2009, and i had it done by the end of the month, and quilted that year before christmas so it could go on my bed!! and i used the bamboo batting, its expensive, but i love it!!, even with the warm n natural, it was so heavy, queen size weights your toes down, i needed another blanket! not with bamboo!!

    Your MIL has great taste in fabrics and your quilt is beautiful.

    Wow , that is beautiful. Nice MIL. My ex-MIL just complains about all the crap I have in my house and mess in the yard. She lives in AZ , so I don't see her very often . And she doesn't have much of a garden. And doesn't do any crafts.

    My husband complains I have sewing and craft stuff everywhere. I just tell him not to let the door hit him on the way out. He has a shed full, basement full and 4 guitars, 1 violin and 2 amps in the living room.

    Love your quilt colors.

    What a nice MIL! My MIL didn't give me much either; however, she gave me the best DH so I can't complain.

    Wish my DMIL was still around. She gave us a lovely hand pieced and hand quilted GFG for a wedding gift. It survived daily use and many washings for almost 3O years. We shared a love of all kinds of crafts. Unfortunately I did not start quilting till after she had passed on.

    How lovely! She must be a quilter as well to pick out those great fabrics together! I too, would love to see the whole quilt!

    Great gift from MIL. My MIL used to quilt so she has a few we will get handed down to us eventually. In the mean time, I can look at her house. She has several of my hand quilts too. Nice fabrics and nice gift.

    Too bad you didn't have a MIL like I was lucky enough to get. This sweet old Portuguese lady I don't think ever sewed on a button, and was rather confused about some of my hobbies, but she lovingly bragged on what I did anyway, and even slipped my 2 daughters (her step DDs) money when I wasn't looking.
    RIP, Eugenia...miss you always. And she also gave me a marvelous husband.

    I too would like to see the whole quilt! I love butterflys! My hubby doesn't really complain about all my stuff taking over our small Double Wide home. We had a 24' x 24' shed built to hold all my stuff but hubby's stuff took over and I can't reach any of MY stuff that is still out there! I am patitioning for a shed of my own with a key that only I have! (maybe then I can reclaim my living room, den, and even the spare bedroom so I don't need two days notice when we get the once a year overnight company!)LOL
