QNIC at Jacqui's House and My Friend's Fall Table Runner--done!

Jacqui has a beautiful new house built on top of a wonderful new sewing room. Tonight, I spent the evening in her sewing room with Jacqui and two other quilters, working on finishing the "red" blocks of the Christmas Lights mystery designed by Bonnie Hunter. My reds are scrappy and the 2" squares are scrappy Christmas fabrics. The only fabric I had to purchase for this quilt was the black fabric and the borders. I still have a few gold blocks to finish and then I can play with them to figure out a layout.
Jacqui worked on a spinning 4 patch quilt which will be a wedding gift.
Chris worked on hand sewing the binding on a quilt which will be in a raffle.
Roxene did a little ironing for Jacqui and I. She was too tired to sew!

I finished the binding on my friend's Fall table runner on Sunday night and delivered it to her. It looks nice on her dining room table.

Here's a picture of the completed runner with binding.
Now, I just have to quilt and bind my Fall table runner before Sunday when everyone is coming here for Thanksgiving dinner...

  1. Great projects! I want to move to Canada and join you. Well, except that I despise cold weather...
