For years my mom had a really looong table cloth. It worked well on her really looong table but she got tired of it. A while back she asked me if we could work together to make a table runner out of it. I told her it would have to wait until after Christmas and things slowed down. However... somehow this great pattern came to mind (and I knew she loved the design), things fell into place, and voila, the perfect gift! Don't you love it when that happens?
It's a really long runner, about 6 feet x 3 feet... I lengthened the origional, made it twice and then joined the two together. Here's a close up of one flower... Merry Christmas, Mom!
And way back in the summer while on holidays, I came across some great camper themed fabric. My dad loved it and ordered a lap size quilt. Well, Merry Christmas, Dad! You've got your lakeside scene, hot mugs of coffee, pesky black flies, log cabin (blocks), and campers in the borders... like I said, the only thing missing is the baked beans!
