This tablerunner my Dad claimed in an unfinished sandwiched state on Thanksgiving Day. I finally got it quilted and bound. It's on it's way, Dad!
A little holly leaf in the center of the Friendship Stars and Xs in the border squares did the trick for quilting. It is a busy tablerunner but I like it a lot.
My sister in law Mariana claimed this tablerunner. I liked the holly leaf idea so used it again.
The loopy quilting is much more visible from the back, although the color is way off in the photo--it is actually a very deep red/burgundy color. It needs to be mailed off today but luckily doesn't go too far.
