First off, Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter!! She still has that same smile today!!! Everyone called her a little 'Elizabeth Taylor'.
I thought I would surprise her and make a quilted top for her birthday. When I was talking to her about what wonderful painted pieces she had, Dawn said "well, you could make me a table runner". Hmmmmmm So I confessed that I had already sandwiched the piece and was going to make a top for her. Guess it was a good thing we talked...because I forgot her table is oblong and she just wanted a runner!
Soooooooooooo I continued to free motion quilt the piece
...then I decided to do some hand embroidery on the blue stamped areas. It's great TV work!
I've made a few table toppers for Dawn through the years. Not sure when I made this one. It measures 40" x 24" and she uses it from time to time on her table.
This is another round topper I made for her living room. She has a great birch wood circle coffee table and this fits well on it. I made this in 2011.
Now the big decision is where do I cut the newest piece to make a table runner. Her table is 45"x76" oval but the table runners she has are anywhere from 40"x24" , which is the longer one I made years ago.
Dawn also has some she's purchased from Pier1, 15"x39", 14"x 36". I haven't quite decided on how I'm 'trimming' the current piece but I'm sure I'll make it fit, somehow!
