    My birthday is Tuesday, and my mother-in-law just gave me my present tonight!

    I had admired this in one of her quilt books, so I was thrilled.

    I feel like I'm always giving quilts to people, but most of the people I know don't quilt so I hardly ever get quilty presents. Since she does quilt (and it's great that we have that to share) I've been hoping for awhile that she'd make me something. She makes really beautiful things, and always puts a lot of time into them.

    Congratulations and Happy Birthday. That's a great gift.
    I paint but some of my favorite paintings on my walls were done by my sister and my aunt.

    That's pretty and an unusual pattern/design. Isn't it wonderful to get a quilted present.

    How lucky for you to have a quilting MIL. I love the BD present. How big is it? Do you know the book you saw it in?
