    **Update**
    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.

    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:

    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.

    Tell your dear sweet Mother to stand up and take a bough. If you will PM me with your address, I would be happy to send her a bunch of 4" sqs. My little scrappy tub, is begging for some room and I'd love to share them with her. I don't want anything in return. Just the fact of knowing how excited she is about it, is well worth it for me.

    Wow, I have a tear in my eye from all this love! she is going to be so excited to go to the mailbox. I havent told her about this, I wanted her to be surprised:) I remember when I was little and she'd get involved in card "showers" for friends and loved one for various reasons. Thank you all for giving her a scrap"shower". I cannot express how thrilled she will be. She's been losing a lot of her lifelong friends due to illness in the past year and I know she gets kind of lonely since they live kind of far out of town in the country. I have PM'd her address to the above requestors but will happily PM to any who wants it. thank you so much again.
    she is using scraps about 2" to 3"
