A Birthday Surprise!

I no longer have to keep the secret, and am I glad! After not blogging for a while, I was so excited to actually have a completed quilting project to share with you. Just in time I remembered it still had to go through the mail and if I posted pictures it would ruin the birthday surprise for my son’s girlfriend. Now though, the postman has fulfilled his end of the bargain and the gift has been opened sooo……


I made this table runner to match her dinnerware. I had to go by memory and it can be tricky matching reds and blue-greens, but it worked.



I did straight line quilting in an aqua thread to finish it.


I think it’s about 13″ wide by 40″ long, but I forgot to measure it before I popped it in the mail.


It feels good to get a project finished. Now several more are waiting for finishing touches, too.

So until next time,
Happy Quilting!
