    Found UFO / table runner

    Several months ago, Libby and I went to an estate sale and I found a UFO/Table runner. The deceased quilter had started this one, needle turned applique and she had done all the purple pieces, leaving only the yellow crown in the middle left to do. Plenty of fabric to finish, complete pattern and even it's own plastic shoe box that it was stored in. Her daughter who was running the estate sale was only going to charge me $5 for this UFO, and 4 other items that I had picked out (basically $1 per item), but I just couldn't bring myself to pay so little for this gorgeous fabric, so I insisted that she take $10 for the lot. Still a bargain in my book.

    So in honor of this very talented woman who started this table runner, I'm pleased to present my first attempt at needle turned applique (even if I didn't do the entire thing myself). My DH's comment when he looked at it, was "I can't even see the stitches?" Guess that means I did a good job!

      Wonderful job and nice score at the estate sale! Also your dh sure knows the right thing to say, I can't see your stitches either.

        That was a lucky find. You did a lovely job on your beautiful table runner. It was honorable of you to give more than asking for your purchase. Very impressive.

                  I'll bet that the spirit of the quilter than started this project is smiling at how beautifully you completed it.

                    I like to think so. And I also believe she's sitting next to my Mother in heaven, and shouting down to me "Ok, we know you can do this now, so finish your Mom's Hawaiian Blocks already!!".

                          Aw, a wonderful UFO completion! Beautiful too! Perhaps stumbling upon this was the result of quilting angels in heaven to give you the gentleness of nudges into the Hawaiian blocks.
                          (((((Hugs))))) to all you quilting angels out there, you know who you are! Your nudges are just the right hug we need!
