    Im snowed in today and I ran out of fabric softner so I guess I will have to get squares ready to send to your mom. I have lots and lot sof them. When I get them out I will get a nice package ready to mail to her. I can't wait to get them to her. I would love to see the look on her face when she gets each package in the mail.

    What a great quilt!
    Way to go mom!!
    I just hope that when I am that age, I have the energy
    to do that too!
    Hugs to your mom!! SHE ROCKS!!!

    If she would like some Hawaiian fabric, let me know. They are nice size scraps from the different clothing manufacturers on Oahu.
    I can cut to whatever size, well, 6" or less and send them out or not cut, whichever she prefers.
    I have baggies upon baggies of scraps and would have no problem
    donating them to her. Just let me know.

    I love the quilt, is it called "Postage Stamp"?

    You are so very lucky to have such a talented mom....she must be a very patient person to be able to hand sew all those tiny pieces.

    I would love to send her some fabric pieces in memory of my mom...I would feel it an honor. Please PM me an address and tell me if I need to cut the squares to size for her etc etc.

    Can't wait to see what her next quilt looks like...happy stitching to you and your mom!

    Wow what a wonderful quilt.....blown away that she has done this by hand and not machine. It takes me two weeks to make one by machine. Tell her to keep on as she is creating beautiful quilts. Not many that still makes quilts by hand.
