A gift for a friend

I made this gift for a dear friend a while back - she loves scarfs, and always wants them to be big and long and wrap around a couple of times.  I wanted to make some unique ones that were oversized and cozy... 

First I just used a navy flannel with a periwinkle satin backing and turquoise pom pom trim, to make a fun one... 

And then I tried to make some log cabin blocks using some floral prints in blues, greens and pinks.  Turns out I love simple log cabins where the prints on all 4 sides are the same, to make "frames."  The innermost square in each case is from the lovely Anna Marie Horner Little Folks voile panels, and I can't remember the name of the florals, and my selvedges are long gone. 

The back on this one is navy flannel too.  So the funny thing is, my friend thought that they were table runners!!!  And I guess she was right - they look great on her table!!!
