Last year I told the girls to pick table runners they might like for me to make for them, this was one of SG’s choices.
Mine from August, 2021
With minimal background fabric on hand, I reduced hers by 4 vertical strips. I had “just” enough to make the top and bind it.
I used leftover charm squares from my runner, and I still have leftovers! I started this on Wednesday night and had it quilted by Saturday afternoon. Which was perfect since we drove south to lunch with them on Mother’s Day.
I quilted lines, with different color threads, intersecting through each square in both directions.
The backing was leftover from the Picnic Quilt. I used a blue bobbin thread instead of matching each top thread. I hope she likes it and uses it on her table. She and EG were under the weather when I delivered it, so admiring it wasn’t high on her radar, the food we brought was her focus! She is finally feeling better, while EG now takes over her ailments. LOL We ate on the patio in the warm sunshine to avoid bringing anything home with us!
During her time off she discovered a momma fox and 5 kits, the 5th one was lazing in the yard nearby. She’s been watching them frolic in her yard. So cute! Except for the bunnies and chickens momma brings for feeding time. Ick

If you would, please keep Squish in your thoughts. She is fighting a horrible rash that we just can’t figure out. Poor mite! Her body is covered in welts this week, so we’re trying to get her in to the Dr.
