    As some of you may remember, my mom passed away in November. My oldest sister and I are very close, so I know she's taken it quite hard. For her birthday last month I made her this table topper. It's made from fabrics that mom gave me a few years ago.

    The top is a beautiful white linen and the bottom white cotton sateen. My sister loves it. I'm so glad I did this for her. Sorry the photo is pretty bad. I was in a hurry.

    Beautiful runner I know your sister will treasure it. My Mom died 4 years ago and I still put at least one patch from some of her clothes in every scrap quilt I make.

    Thanks everyone for the sweet compliments. As usual, this board was the inspiration. I saw someone's mention of McTavishing, and decided to follow the lead. That drew me to wanting to give it a try, especially after seeing a couple of YouTube tutorials from Missouri Quilt Co. In the end this was both practice and a gift. My sister does love it. She is so proud that I used the linen from mom's stash. But, I don't think she'll use it.
