I was fortunate enough to win a giveaway from Wendy at Snippets of a Quilter and I received a package yesterday with this lovely table runner in it.
There is wool applique on both ends of the runner.
I also got a FQ of this western cowgirl fabric, an Old Glory pattern and a note pad for my purse.
I put the runner on a dresser and think it looks very nice, brightening up the bedroom!  Thanks, Wendy!
This morning I basted three donation quilts.  Here they are piled on a chair waiting to be quilted.  I'm going to go ahead and start on one of the smaller ones and see how it goes.  I ordered a new quilting foot and hopefully it will arrive soon.  I'm pretty sure my problem is coming from my old quilting foot, so we'll see what happens.  
I'm hoping to get these quilted before we go visit the grandkids in three weeks.


  1. Love the runner, and the fabrics are cool;)
    I think my quilting foot is acting makes a heck of a noise, but still works;)
    Happy Quilting!!

  2. Very pretty runner! Congratulations on the win. Love the fabric of the quilt on the top.


  3. Congratulations on your win, the tablerunner is gorgeous! The cowgirl fabric could be fun to play with, can't wait to see what you do with it. And a flag quilt pattern, just perfect since you love flags. Have fun with all your goodies!

    I am going on a day camp retreat this weekend. I have my projects packed in my basket---I wonder how much I will get accomplished with visiting, viewing others projects and eating :(!!!! Looking forward to catching up with my quilting buddies that I have seen for a while.
