It involved applique again, but bigger pieces... I hardly complained because the block was sooooo cute!
I opted out of the logs for the log cabin but think that the house is still cute. It could be our house! (please excuse the unkept look of the house... we are currently doing some repair work on the stucco finish.)
The story of how we came to live in South-Eastern Colorado is quite the story!
We had been living in the Chicagoland area for 9+ years and had long desired to return to Colorado to raise our children. An opening for an instructor at the college where Dave and I met was announced and he applied. He interviewed on November 15th and received a job offer on November 23rd... the day before Thanksgiving. The job would begin January 3rd.
We called my parents who lived 80 miles from where we would be living and asked them if they would go locate a house for us to purchase... sight-unseen!
We immediately started packing and purging... We loaded the truck on December 26th and pulled out of IL on December 27th. We arrived in Trinidad, CO on December 31st and unloaded our belongings into this...
It was clean inside, thanks to my parents and brother since they spent three days cleaning and removing household contents that had been left behind.
We got settled in and continued cleaning the yard and removing miles of fences, replaced the roof and painted it in the first 5 months.
It made a world of difference!
What an adventure we have had! Our families must have thought we were crazy... but we had the Peace That Passes All Understanding prevail and we walked through it as though it was no big deal. **sigh** CrAzY!!!
Nearly as crazy as the wild ride we were on that started six years ago... but that is a different story.
In the layout of the finished quilt, this 24" block is the center of the quilt and the blocks are coming together nicely!
When complete it will be the perfect size for our bed in our camper... Next year.
Have you had a crazy adventurous move in life?
Stay calm and keep quilting!
