I decided to use my Wild Honey runner pattern with some Christmas prints.
And I spiral quilting the blocks with a dark green 128 Aurifil thread.
And a finish, which lead me to make a simpler one to give to a friend coming out from Kansas for a visit this coming week.
And for those of you that enjoy my daughter's chickens, ducks, and peacocks here is Orbie her rooster to say good morning.
There is nothing as nice on a summer morning than sitting on the front porch with your coffee and a friend. My daughter has the perfect companion to sit with her and enjoy the beginning of the day.

Such pretty runners for your neighbor and friend. No time like the present to get a few extra Christmas gifts taken care of. Great job!ReplyDelete
Christmas already?! That’s smart of you to plan ahead, but YIKES!! And yes, I’m one of the rooster-lovers. 😀ReplyDelete
Those are pretty tablerunners! It's definitely nice to be prepared ahead of time!ReplyDelete
Hi Donnalee! I just LOVE that closeup shot of the first table runner. Look at how nice that center fabric pulls out that color in the small flowers. I just adore that! And the dark green too - all around this is just so pleasing. You're all set for that unexpected, surprise gift this year! I'll bet your friend will be tickled pink with her runner. Enjoy your visit with your friend - I agree, there's nothing better! Thanks for linking up today. I definitely am one of the rooster lovers!! ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Smart move to get a Christmas gift done in advance! And what pretty table runners.ReplyDelete
Haha, I never thought of that. To make a few small gift and have them wrapped. Of course I live in a rural area and strange, we don't all communicate but wave in passing. The last time I took a neighbor a gift it was a baby quilt for her first grandchild. Her husband who was a shirt tail relation to my husband had recently passed away. In conversation she informed me that they moved to the country to get away from neighbors because they had enough friends. She left me walking away shaking my head. That was the last time I have spoken to her. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down, it's a lovely runner that I would be proud to display.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous gift - congrats on getting it done to enjoy this Christmas!ReplyDelete
Beautiful runner gift. That rooster is also a beauty.ReplyDelete
No time like the present to get ready for the holidays! These will be lovely gifts. And at first when I saw Orbie, I thought he was floating or had really long legs :PReplyDelete
Your daughter's fowls are always good for a smile! Sounds like you've got a good jump on Christmas with your lovely runner.ReplyDelete
