Quilted Table Runner

At a recent quilting retreat, I managed to finish a table runner just in time for my sister-in-law’s birthday. Here it is on her table, set with a harvest theme.Β 

Harvest time reminds us

how fortunate we are

to have the necessities of life,

and many comforts and privileges

beyond what we need.

    This is a beautiful setting and a lovely sentiment, Anneli. Autumn is such a great time of the year. We’re sure your sister-in-law was very, very happy about this special gift.
    Have a great weekend,

        My dad always used to say that was him (he?). You’re the editor haha. How about Jill? I would say you’re a master of several. Writing, baking, etc.

    That’s a beautiful table runner, Anneli, and a lovely quote. Simple and meaningful words have the most impact at any time. I am dreadful about leaving comments but always love to see your posts and admire your beautiful photography.

      Thanks, Susie. Not really a poem this time but I suppose they’re poetic thoughts. Something we should all be thinking about more, as we have so much to be thankful for.

    This is a beautiful quilting example in the delightful runner you made, Anneli! She will cherish this because you made it, along with love in every stitch. ❀🍁
    Your thoughts about having more “comforts and privileges” than we need is a gem of a way of expressing this. 🌻
