rose table runner

Rose Table Runner, 13" x 38". Made for Project Quilting Challenge 5 - It's Where I Live. For this challenge I chose 2 things that could be associated with Kentucky, which is where I live. I used roses because the Kentucky Derby is often called the Run for the Roses. And I used log cabin blocks because Abraham Lincoln's childhood home is a log cabin located in Kentucky. Both the roses and the background blocks are log cabins, although not in exactly the traditional style. The challenge specified that the colors must start with the first letter of your street, city, and state. My letters were P, A, and K so I chose pink, aqua, and kiwi as my colors. This quilt was pieced and partially quilted in Kentucky and finished in Michigan while I was there visiting. This challenge may be my favorite one yet., especially the extra twist about picking the colors.
