    I made this using left over blocks from other projects, and also adding some other blocks I liked.

    Very pretty runner and t-cloth - did you crochet the t-cloth? Also the quilt is so vibrant I love bright colors.

    Thanks for the eye candy! We really love pictures. Your table runner is so festive. Isn't red and white such a classic combo? The sampler block quilt is awesome! You have to make more to show!

    Just love that gorgeous red/white table runner. My eye caught your tablecloth in your previous post! So gorgeous and what an heirloom! And....the sampler is so beautiful. It's so nice to see some "off the cuff" blocks like the cubs in there instead of traditional all the time or "what's expected." Be sure to keep posting! We love your pics! :-) :-)

    Thank you, and yes the table cloth was made by my mom for our 25th anniversary... ( that was 28 years ago, as we just had our 53). Mom, made one for each of us, as I had three sisters, and two are gone now. She was always crocheting something. It is a treasure to me. Thanks for noticing it.

    We live in Madison, Wi. but are still Bear fans. My husband is a Cardinal fan, and I like the Cubs. I found the material, and just had to make a quilt block out of it! :)

    Marcine, your Christmas runner and quilt are beautiful. As is the gorgeous tablecloth your mother made, so pretty! I love your quilted house in the center of your quilt. So cute! :D

    My jaw dropped when I read that!!! It wd take me forever to do one of those, let alone three more!! I do love crochet and when I lived in Germany I taught my neighbor how to crochet. The challenge was that she was left-handed! :roll: lol. Your mother wd be so proud that you are showing all of us her work! She deserves that honor! WTG, Marcine! You're an experienced quilter as I've ever seen! :D 8)
