Table Runners

Where has the time gone? I am happy to say that I've gotten lots and lots of things made, finished up some block swaps, and have several UFO tops completed and ready to quilt. I have been on a table runner kick for several months now....I started last year and was able to get some made in time for Christmas...here are pics of three of them, also pics of the recipients:

Melanie is a dog groomer (also a dog lover) so her runner has dogs.

Julia and Nichole got coffee prints to match their kitchens.

After the first of the year, I made two runners for a table runner challenge sponsored by one of my on-line quilting groups. These were my two entries:

Neither one was the winner of the challenge, but I am happy with the way they turned out.

About this time, I saw a short demo at my local quilt shop for a really fast, easy pattern, and I was hooked again! The pattern demo coincided with Easter prints going on sale at the fabric store where I work, and the result was lots of Easter table runners:
I have made several more from the book Let's Do Lunch by Terry Atkinson, but don't have pics as they are not quilted yet. It's a really great book with lots of great patterns; I recommend it to anyone who is looking for patterns for quick gifts. I bought mine at the Calico Cat Quilt Shop in Lake Jackson, Texas, so I know you can get them there if you are interested.
