    Denise,
    Both of your projects are wonderful but that chenille is to die for! What a wonderful idea. I have a chenille duvet that I don't use any more. I've been saving it and now I know what I've been saving it for! What a great idea!

    I used circles cut from chenille and flannel squares for the inside of the 'window'. I had leftover batting high loft from years ago and had just enough for the quilt. The pattern and directions are from this site http://www.equilters.com/library/jeans/jeans_gallbaros.html. The hardest part was cutting circles from the chenille. This is a self quilting project. I finished at 4:30 on Christmas eve to give to my mother-in-law. Her cancer has come back and I wanted something cozy for her to use. I used an icecream pail lid for my circle pattern.

    I think that the table runner turned out beautifully. You need to post a finished picture so that everyone can see how great it is.

    Would love to know how you did the chenile circles. In the long ago, I made cathedral windows in the "old fashioned" folded square way, but surely that would be way too much bulk. Beautiful quilt.
