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.
