My table runner is for my coffee table. It was made from a panel, quilted and pieced by me.

I have put this topper on the table at the beginning of the fall season to bring me comfort and remind me of my blessings.

I designed this wall hanging using EQ7 and a Quiltmaker quilting stencil. I hand embroidered the center and then added the Marti and Me Club Twinkling Stars to the borders. It is 36″ x 36″ and just fits on the back of my front door! It brightens up the hallway and wishes everyone a Happy Holiday.

This little quilt was inspired by thoughts of Autumn, seasons changing, life changing and thinking of the loved ones we’ve lost. The scripture embroidered on it gives me comfort and a grateful heart that there is a time and place for everything good and bad.

This was a BOM designed specifically for our LQS several years ago. I wasn’t living in the valley at that time to make this quilt but was recently able to convince the designer to reprint her pattern so I could make it. I have always loved this Farmer Scarecrow showing his bountiful blessings.
