I will be leaving on vacation for over a week to go to my nephews wedding back east, so I thought I'd post this quilt even though it isn't quilted yet.
Last year I won some double wedding ring blocks through the guilds block of the month program. I ended up with 5 blocks (a block has two of the football shaped pieces plus the center). Since I didn't enjoy the process all that much I thought I would make a long table runner - but after looking at them and playing with them, I unassembled most of the blocks and put them back together with the right size pieces and decided a 3 ring runner was good enough. It's still not straight and I couldn't figure out how to make it right so again, I just called it done, quilted it, bound it and that was it. And purples really aren't my color either.
Like I said, I'm off on vacation, without the hubby again. He hates planes and wouldn't come. I even lured him with a side trip to DC to go to the Smithsonian, but no, he said he'll stay here and watch the dogs. I fly out with my brother, his wife (my Scrabble partner and yes I have a travel game already in my tote) and his two young kids early this week. It should be loads of fun with family.
