Fall Runner and Fun Mail

The fall table runner is almost finished, just some hand sewing of the binding and veins to add on the maple leaf. This one is going to a friend and her husband is making me a concert maple leaf stepping stone, good barter I'd say.
Don't be too hard on me this is the first time I've tried this type of free motion, I think it looks like the wind is blowing. Now I've got to get my own runner finished, this will look great on my new table coming in a few weeks.
I've said it before blogging friends are wonderful. When I checked the mail yesterday I had a surprise package. Carol surprised me with Moda Candy Bars and a card with Lula's picture on the front. I entered the Bunnyhill parade of pets (Lula is a Dreamer) and Carol grab the picture and made this lovely card. I love them both and will keep that card for a long time. Thanks Carol!. The Patchwork Angels pattern also arrived on the same day, I ordered this pattern because I want to make Purl the sewing doll, she is so very whimsical and I can't wait to make her hair-do with rusty pins.

I think your runner looks lovely, free motion quilting and all! I'm glad to hear you're making one for yourself, too. And what lovely mail to receive - I'm envious. But I agree, blogging friends are AWESOME!

Your free motion quilting is wonderful! Kuddos to you for jumping in there (I have some quilts that need it - but I'm a big chicken LOL)! Love the goodies, too! Nice job!

Your fall runner with the leaves is a perfect addition for your fall decor. I need to see what small pieces for fall that I have to put out. No leaf runner, though.

The colors in your table runner are stunning, Wendy...and so is your free motion quilting. Don't be so hard on yourself because it looks more than fine to me.

Love that Lula. She is soooo pretty.

Lovely table runner, and yes, the free motion quilting gives the idea of blowing wind and leaves, great job! The recipients will love this!
