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.
