DH didn't have any more boats to make so he made a covered bridge. During the process he totally surprised me by asking me to make 2 Bridge Quilt Blocks (one on each side). I don't know where he learned to build a bridge -- he didn't have any drawings or plans. The "Bridge Quilt block" is 1 inch. Try painting one of those! Those are lightning rods on the top, and each end of the bridge are built in hitching posts. It's right out of "Bridges of Madison County"!
Here is my wild finished string quilt (for kids) I did use fabric from a scrap box gift from my local LQS. This is the 3rd project I've made from that scrap box, and there is still MORE in it! The dotty light fabric is left over backing. It's about 40" square.
