Stripping Day with the Girls!

No, no not that kind of stripping, strip quilting! Today the NewQuiltingClub gals were led by a fearless Monica in how to make a stripped log cabin quilt! It was really fun to do the virtual sew and motivates me to work, work, work. I used red, white, blue and a little, tan and brown to make this so I can donate it to quilts of valor (my first one!) though I am not sure through who yet. It went together pretty good and was fun. I may add another brown border with flags on it tomorrow. It will be backed in military bdu type fabric my ex DH obtained years ago and I have been moving all over the place..have made the boys clothes from it, drapes, etc. when they were into it and I still have a chunk left!
I worked on my sister's tablerunner handwork last night and today too. All five blocks are handstitched though only three pics here since I finished these last night as Kathy did her OC. We shipped the OC's to Steph (they are on the way lol) and my other two quilts back to Wisc to Jen today. Was a busy mail day let me tell ya!

I used leftover fabric for these blocks so Tina gets some fabric that is in our stepdad's quilt (his nickname is Pear) and our grandfather's tablerunner too...I think there is even some that was in my sister's horse quilt, my daughter's quilt and my psuedo princess daughter's quilt...good memories!
