    Take one abandoned quilt-as-you-go project -- add a new-found addiction to table runners and you have this!

    Started it as a lap quilt for my daughter - a collector of snowmen - didn't like anything about it so it got abandoned in a corner of the sewing room. Now new found life! And I have tons of blocks from a jelly roll of this line. Runners, runners, runners!

    Guess it's not really a runner since it's rather large, but I have a table in my piano studio that just begs for some kind of decoration. I was using the sampler I made in my one and only quilting class in August, but now thinking maybe -- seasonal?

    I NEED to go to bed, but ... I'm on a roll!

    Back is nothing special, but don't you have to show it on a QAYG? :)

    More of a topper than a runner, but abandoned no more!
