Date: December 2010
Reason: Mum and Dad painted their bunkhouse and made it so pretty inside. I wanted to contribute to it so I made this for them for Christmas. I chose these colours to match the bedding.
Best deals: This was made entirely from scraps. My friend Gloria gave me a bag of leftovers. The border is from that bag.
Thoughts: I didn't use a pattern for this and it was the first time I did anything "on point" it's far from perfect.
I started making 6½" squares when my scrap drawers got too full. I also used blocks like this in The Colour Garden.
It was a ton of fun to use blue and yellow DMC floss to stitch around the seams. I tried my best to use a different stitch for every line. It was very challenging and required some research.
Mother thought this was too nice to put in the bunkhouse :)
