    Sharon, that's very sweet, I know she'll think of you everytime she gets under it. I particularly like the pieced back, I've never done it because I was afraid it wouldn't look good but that looks just fine.
    BTW I like the front too! LOL

    That looks great! Did you use a pattern or make it up yourself?

    I love both sides, but the back is neat because your strips are sooo straight! And I like seeing all the quilting that doesn't really show up in the front. Nice job! I want one, whine, whine :!:

    Thanks, sweet Friends, I did do all the quilting. Just plain old stitch in the ditch with a decorative wavy machine pattern for the outside of the blocks. It was a first for me in the stitch in the ditch. I have always pieced my backs, they just don't make fabric I like wide enough not to. I do hope Mom likes it, mail has it now and sure hope it arrives on Saturday or before. I like to surprise her once in awhile.

    Thanks again for the compliments! The pattern? Ask Patrice for the name, it's one of hers and it was the best pattern I ever ever followed.

    I got so excited seeing Mimisharon back on the board - then I saw the date, 2007. I hope that she is well.

    I love scrappy quilts. Reminds me of the quilts of so long ago when they used what they had on hand. You did a gret job and I'm sure your Mom will love it. Wonderful job.
