NYC Marathon 2006 Quilt

Using Printed Treasures for photo transfer, I scanned in memorabilia from the 2006 NYC Marathon and built a “log cabin” around them. I never did get a picture of it completed with all the quilting. I believe it is now in the trunk of my son's car somewhere in Connecticut.

Asparaqus and Pepto Bismol

This was my third “Inspector Clue-sew “quilt. So, in my defense I had no idea what it would look like when finished. Actually I take that back, if I would have known the outcome at the onset , I never would have made the quilt. Of course I always have to add extra borders so that it can be used on a bed or table because I don't like it well enough to use as a wall hanging. It looks better in the picture than in real life hence the full title:
