However, while helping me with my first craft fair of the season, she decided she wanted to buy one of my quilts. She went back and forth between String of Luck and a Christmas Quilt the entire afternoon before settling on String of Luck. Since it's one of my favorites I'm pretty happy I get to snuggle under it whenever I visit her!

During November, she also let me know that she really liked my scrappy table runner and would love it if I made her one as her Christmas gift. Perhaps in beige, brown and forest green, measuring 20" x 50". She's subtle, my mom :)
And here is is.
Turns out I have very little beige, brown or forest green in my stash, so these are all purchased for this project from my local quilt shop. I cut strips between 2.5 and 3.5" wide and arranged them randomly.
It's quilted with straight lines randomly spaced in cream thread and bound in brown scraps.
The reverse is made with Christmas scraps left from the pillows I made for my MIL last year. I had just enough! My Mom loves Christmas and this way, she can use the table runner year round.
And now she has three quilts made by me!
