    Well they aren't kids. They just finished building a really nice log home. I thought some bright colors would be in order for the log walls. I bought enough to make the pillowcases and the shams too, but, I haven't started those yet. What do you think? (That is an extra quilt under the bed .. It gets cold here at night.)

    I love the words in the fabric so perfect for the occation. This was a block of the month I bought all at once as a kit from my local quilt shop. That owner is the best! She was so nice to let me have it all at once.

    ps) I tried to fix it, but, the colors are kind of wonky. That is a much nicer teal blue than that.

    It's georgous - you really do turn out some beautiful work. You kids will love it - I know I'd be so proud to receive it if I was the recipient.
    Don't forget to post pics of the Shams & Pillowcases when you've finished them.

    FABULOUS colors & fabulous job making it! I see NO star tips off! The colors should be absolutely perfect in the setting they are going to.

    GREAT JOB!!

    Thanks riley! Here is a couple pics of the house while they were building it. I am just so proud of them for finishing it in such a short time. The interior is all logs and rustic.
