Jeff decided to name his mother's quilt Dunrobin, after her family's castle in Scotland. Back in around 1997, Jeff and I went on a trip to Scotland with her and were able to see it. It is a special memory for us.
I designed and pieced the quilt. Jeff quilted it. We made this quilt for her 92nd Birthday and it will be sent off to her in the next few days.

try to get a better photo before it gets mailed.
This completes my November One Monthly Goal. I am surprised, and pleased, I managed to finish this project despite losing more than two weeks to a severe cold. Thanks to Patty at Elm Street Quilts for hosting the monthly link-up.
Rather than dive into Bonnie Hunter's Chilhowie Mystery quilt, as I am eager to do, I have decided to spend the rest of the year finishing projects and cleaning up my sewing room. I have too many piles of unsorted fabrics and unfinished projects languishing on the tables and floor in the sewing room.
My list for the rest of the year includes:
- Finish the 3 quilts I've quilted, but not sewn on the binding.
- I've got four sets of blocks I made during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I would like to see if any of those have enough blocks to finish into quilts.
- Quilt the Paducah log cabin flimsy.
- I still have quite a few flimsies that are all prepped, along with backings, I could quilt....

Your MIL's quilt is beautiful! The quilting looks very lovely, she's going to love this quilt! Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
Thank you Gretchen. I am pleased with how it turned out.Delete
A beautiful finish! Good luck on finishing that list, too. (I love finishing things up by the end of the year!)ReplyDelete
It will be hard to resist Bonnie's mystery quilt, but I am going to try and stay focused.Delete
Congrats on a gorgeous finish! Good luck with your plans for UFO reduction for the rest of the year. It would be nice to start the new year with less of those.ReplyDelete
It certainly will. I'm trying to make a game out of it to see how much I can get finished.Delete
What a lovely gift that is - I am sure she will be delighted. xxReplyDelete
I really hope so. I hope this quilt is the right size.Delete
This is a beautiful quilt. I love the block pattern and how the blues and greens work so well together. (One of my favorite color combinations.) I also like the variety of blues and the creams and yellows. It's gorgeous! Congrats on your finish.;ReplyDelete
Thank you. I chose blue because that is my mother-in-law's favorite and the yellow should match the wall paint of her bedroom. I do hope she likes it.Delete
That quilt you both made is beautiful! Will you be able to have a photo of her with the quilt? Wow that castle is magnificent - and it's in her family? I like to think that Laugharne Castle in Wales is in my family's history due to my maiden name of Lawhorn, but it's probably just a dream. Thank you for sharing this goodness with To Do Tuesday!ReplyDelete
One of my mother-in-law's hobbies is genealogy and she was able to track her family back to the scottish family that still lives there, so technically she is in their family. She actually did some research in their records while we visited.Delete
It's gorgeous!! I am so envious of your productivity!!ReplyDelete
