    I just wanted to say a big Thank You! to everyone who PM'd me for mom's address. she is going to be soooooooo excited!

    I just had to post pictures of my mom's first quilt! She's 83. If anyone would like to send any kind of small scraps for her, please PM me. I'd be happy to send you fq's in return. She's having so much fun, it's wonderful to see her excited about her new obsession! She is sewing this all by hand! This one took her two weeks.

    I'd also send your mom some scraps. Give me a pm. What size are those squares. I love the quilt and I think that your Mom did a great job.

    What a knockout beautiful quilt; yes indeed I'd love to send her an envelope full of material and tell her so, though honestly I'd not be asking for anything in return. If you send me the address, I'll pop it in the mail asap. :thumbup:

    Gorgeous quilt! How big are the individual squares? PM your address and I'll contribute. I've got lots of scraps that are begging for a project!

    Wow. The quilt is great. Let me know more details of what she wants and I will help. I can cut squares any size or I have lots of 4" squares I would love to give her. Let me know.

    P.S. We'd love to see a picture of her with the quilt. It would just be great to have a face to go with the quilt.
