And then, this happened!

I offered my Mother In Law to make a table runner for her RV. She immediately said "yes, please!" Her mother was a quilter and she did a few quilts of her own in her younger years. Now, she is more a knitter and a crochet fanatic than a quilter.

Anywho! I started with some tulip blocks. I believe it was very popular in the 50s (time when my MIL got married) in my area.


Then I did some colourful log cabin blocks with the Full Moon Log Cabin Lunatics at Julie's place.


And then, this happened: 



I did say in my last post that you would need to wait til the next full moon to see what I was up to ...  but I couldn't wait that long. Hahaha!

Next week, it will pay a visit to my MIL to see how much bigger it needs to be, or maybe she will like it at this size! We'll see. It is 18 X 36 inches. 

Now that this project is out of my head, I can concentrate again on the 365 Challenge blocks. 


But first, I have to go see some blogs. Hope you will take a few minutes to check them out too. 


I'll see Angela's at SoScrappy for RSC (might not be very much of a hot pink, but pink nonetheless)


I'll visit Cynthia at Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap! on Sunday. 



Until next time ... 


;^)

  2. Tulips and log cabins: it couldn't be better. I think I might copy your idea for my husband's uncle and aunt who emigrated to Ontario from The Netherlands sixty-two years ago!

  13. Oh, that is adorable! They could have snuggled up with each other all night, and I would never have thought to marry them that way!
