    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.

    Ah Red

    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.

    It is in a city called kila, montana. Not too far from Glacier.

    They are thirteen hours from me. I wish I could get up there to see them for a visit and take this in person. I think maybe I will have to soon. I will check on a flight. I am not that adventurous anymore to drive it by myself. Hubby is a workaholic and won't take any time off.

    Anyone heard of McKenna Ryan, the art quilt designer? She lives very near them. I would love to visit her shop. I know she has a site on line, does she have a physical shop?

    p.s. LOVE the log home...we applied and had plans drawn up to import a Canadian Log home, my DH even went out to Newfoundland to see where they are made, but unfortunately Spanish local council wouldn't allow wooden structure as a permanent build boo hoo!! I so wanted to live in a log home, please post more pictures of it as they progress :D

    Love it! I went through Hurricane Charlie in a log cabin, and it was the only home left standing. They are the best!

    I wonder how long before they will be asking for log cabin patterned quilts to go with that beauty.
