Table Runner Blog Hop

Woo hoo! I made it! After my confusion on Monday, I was worried I would not be able to deliver on the goods today. Thank you so much for all those who reached out to me with messages of kind understanding and support. You know who you are! It meant very much to me.

This table topper encompasses things I love. I love flowers. My Nana's (my Mom's Mom) favorite flower was the Black Eyed Susan, so I tried to make this look like one. (Although it does look a bit like something that might grow in a garden on Mars, too.) Patchwork mixed with a bit of free-form applique is something I have been enjoying lately, and this mini features some of those techniques. I love my three little girls. The flower "petals" are made from outlines of their hands. Finally, this mini quilt and mini quilt hanger will be a Mother's Day gift for my Mom, whom I love.


Thank you, Madame Samm for hosting this Blog Hop and for everything else you do for the quilting/sewing community.

  2. One of my big fears in signing up for things is a date mix up. It's human to get mixed up sometimes. I'll stop by again later in the week to see what you have done. I'm all for the better late than never concept.
