    At first glimpse, it looked like a real bookcase. You did a phenomenal job.

    I never reply to these comments, but when I saw your quilt I was so impressed I just had to send you kudos! What a treasure. I made a horse quilt for my cousin (an accomplished horsewoman) who graduates today but her grandmother took it so I have no idea how she likes it.
