    A couple Christmas gifts...

    I haven't had internet at my computer for a few weeks, so this is the first chance I've had to post these.

    The table runner I made for my cousin and his family. We were very close growing up and I think of him as a brother, so wanted to do something special for them.

    The blue and yellow was for my grandma. It turned out to be an enormous PIMA and I was soooo glad when I was finally able to mail it out.

    They are both beautifully done. I love the whimsy of the table runner.

    Took me a moment to decipher "PIMA", but now I get it! Was it because of the grid quilting? I love the blue and yellow!

    Wow..both things look great. I love the bold, bright fabrics too.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Somewhat... I was still learning how to use my new machine when I started. Tried to do echo quilting in the stars, but was taking too long, so ripped it out. Tried to do some free motion, but kept having tension issues, so ripped it out. Finally figured out the tension, had it halfway quilted, and my machine got broken... When I got the new one, had tension issues again and ripped all the quilting out and went with the grid...
    You can see why I just said it was a PIMA... lol
