    I know that some of you might remember that I was having some trouble with what I should make for my sisters quilt. Here's a short rundown
    1st she asked for something red, black and white
    2nd then wanted to know if I could make half country and half skeletons for her boyfriend.
    By this time, I had traveled and was able to have gone to a fabric store. This was before she had given me choice 2
    I had purchased the fabric that happens to have flowers, she said, that is a lot of flowers could I put country animals in it. I told her the fabric had been purchased and I don't think chickens, horses would fit in. With the help of the suggestions from everyone. I decided to go along with the fabrics I have chosen and make my 1st log cabin (country looking). I am finally starting and enclosing beginning pictures. What do you think??

    Love that color combo. Maybe the backing can have the skeletons or animals she requested. Love what you have done so far.

    Love the colors!!!! I think you have made the right choice - not sure about anyone else but I dont think farm animals or skeltons have a place in a bedroom :lol: maybe its just me.

    Maybe you can put together a couple of placemats for their kitchen - make them reversible skeltons on one side and farm animals on other. Or even Just a mug rug for each of them. A little more approriate I think - but hey thats just me cheryl :thumbup:
