With the holiday season upon us, there just isn't time to start any major projects and I have (so far!) resisted the urge to whip up any gifts. I keep a little basket on my sewing table of "maybe" projects. I dipped into the "maybe" basket and found eight leaf blocks I made last year . Voila! A very long table runner to give to my son and daughter in law to celebrate the first Thanksgiving in their new home.
I quilted this in a leaf motif (of course) and added a little color to the back.
How wonderful (and surprising!) that it perfectly fit their dining room table. It's almost like I planned it!
And a few of these for the grandson for fun!
That chenille backing is so very soft!!
But I really am itching to start another quilt...
Love that leaf quilting! Adorable bibs, too. Such lovely gifts.ReplyDelete
Hooray!! for a few quick finishes. :o))ReplyDelete
Great little finishes, I love the table runner!ReplyDelete
That table runner is sure nice! What a good gift for a Thanksgiving table. I recognize some of those fabrics used for leaves. I had them in my traditional stash. The purple one was a favorite. And your quilting is lovely! Cute bibs too. It's so nice to be able to make and give away.ReplyDelete
