There are two items I completed this year for my family.
The first was a Zigzag Rainbow quilt for my granddaughter Sarah’s fourteenth birthday last July. She was a new Beattles fan and chose a rainbow for her room. Here she was presenting it at our quilt group show and tell. I loved making something she enjoys so much.
My second choice was a table runner made for my daughter for her Christmas dinner.
This was a kit from Connecring Threads, the first kit I had ever made. For backing I used a reclaimed valence with an African feel. I bound it with the same stripe. This meant a lot to Beth because she had spent time in Ivory Coast as a nurse on the Mercy Ship, assisting in surgeries on people who had no other hope for their severe disfigurements.
I machine quilted it and it looked elegant on her Christmas table.
