    I love it - I am very new to quilting and have almost finished a table runner for my mom. I know it will mean a lot to her because it is the first one I have ever done but I love yours and sure hope I am able to make her a big pretty one for next Christmas - I think your mom will love it.
    Blessings,
    Scherrie

    it's not scrappy quilt although it could be. i used about 80 fq's to do this! it's called shoeboxes and i took a class at our local quilt store to learn it-it's really easy though. can't remember which book she got it out of but i could look. for the quilting i did a 1/4" seam along every other line--it looked really cool that way!!
    thanks everyone for your kind comments. i'm sure my mom will love it.
