This lovely table runner was hand pieced by my daughter Ainsley's mother-in-law, Nancy Miller. Actually by her sewing friends. Many years ago. The fabrics are very cute 70's calicoes. The blocks languished at Nancy's for many years in a sewing room full of fabric and yarn. Then, she gave them to Ainsley to finish when Ainsley started quilting. I took them last spring year and added little border strips of muslin to highlight each block. Then I pieced them together with sashing from TJ, Nancy's son and Ainsley's sweetheart. I hand quilted and bound the table runner. It made the perfect Thanksgiving table setting for Nancy and Bill's table.
