Made the tablerunner and matching placemats for my DD; her DH likes coffee and she likes coffee and wine. So I made them reversible in a quilt-as-you-go technique; one side is coffee and the other is wine.
Below is a challenge our quilt group did. The pattern is called "Sour Dough" and has 100 blocks; we used all scraps from our stashes. Well, I decided to make two lap size quilts using 48 blocks for each; I arranged the blocks in a "Barn Raising" pattern rather than the "Sour Dough". This one will go to "Gift of Life Transplant House" at the Mayo in Rochester, Mn which is another story. Before she died my dear Mom pieced a top for "Gift of Life" but never layered it so I did last spring; I could not part with Mom's last quilt so I am sending this one instead to the house. I'm donating it in memory of my Mom and my son who stayed at "Gift of Life" during stem cell transplant. Quilt is titled "Home Away From Home" and is dedicated to all who stay at the house.

Sweet dreams and God bless.
