Last week I showed you a table runner I made for my mother-in-law, and this week I have the one I made for my mother.
Like the previous one, I used all fabrics from my stash, most left over from previous projects. The design is a simple window pane design with white sashing. I used freeform wavy lines for the quilting.
The backing is a fabric I had purchased for another project online, but when it came it didn’t quite match the other fabrics, so I’m especially glad to have found it a home.
It’s a nice simple quilt, but I’m quite happy about how the peach and emerald green look beside one another. Hopefully this will get lots of use.

This is so pretty. I’m realizing I really like these simple quilt designs that let the fabrics shine.
Thank you! I really like simple quilts. Much more my style than the more traditional variety.
I also love the simple quilt designs, and this one is really lovely. I cannot believe that you are a beginner sewer, this looks so beautifully executed!
Thank you! Glad you like my work. But I’m not really a beginning sewer. I’ve been sewing since I was 10. I do still consider myself a beginning quilter though. I can still count all my quilting projects on two hands.
Really really pretty! You have made a super job of it, especially the FMQ.
Thank you! Glad you like the table runner and the quilting.
Love the colors and how you chose to quilt it. Another amazing creation!
Thanks so much! Sometimes the scrap bin has some really nice surprises in store.
