    I entered a swap for a small quilted item. My assigned partner was a quilter that I was unfamiliar with. kreinhart742. She asked for a table runner, and I wanted a quilt to hang in my family room, (now sewing room). When she sent mine, I was floored, it is gorgeous! I felt like it was just too pretty to leave in the family room, where none but us, would see it. I decided to paint my dining room (we repainted the entire interior of the house) to accent it. I used a neutral off-white, that set it off beautifully. Thank you kreinhart742. Your beautiful work is now the first thing folks see when they enter my home. It is a perfect match to the carpet throughout my home. I hope she was as thrilled as I am.

    This is the table runner I made in the colors she requested, that I forgot to photograph before I left home, so I had to take the picture at the Post Office!

    I have only my cell phone camera, since DD borrowed my Canon to take pictures of (Puget Sound), where she lives.
