Quilt and Table Runner


I made this lovely purple table runner to help raise money for the Activity Department at work.  They are having a silent auction and carnival.   I had these strips of purple from my sister-in-law Mel box of goodies she sent me and thought they would work well in this runner.   I bought a basket and filled it with fun kitchen stuff along with the table runner.  Hope she gets a good bid.


My mother-in-law gave me some books of furniture fabric samples and I used them to create this quilt of mixed print of earth tones, peaches and greens.


 I loved the prints and had lots of fun with this.  I bought the green print fabric to offset the nine patch blocks and made it a twin size.


 I hand quilted it with green thread.

 Thanks for visiting,


  1. I made a quilt with fabric samples a very long time ago. Not sure what happened to it or where it is now. You did a great job of complementing those fabrics and turning it into a great quilt. The purple table runner will make for a great filler in the raffle basket. How sweet of you to donate.

  2. I hope you get a good bid too. Love the quilt!

  3. What is it about nine patch quilts that are so appealing? That was my first block and still my favorite. I am sure you will get a good bid on your pretty runner!

  4. I love the 9-patch, big or small! You have created a stunning quilt from these pieces. I am so trying to resist getting out my cutter and mat and starting on one myself ! I'm sure your lovely table runner will do well!
