November 4th

Today is my Father-in-law's Birthday. He is 89. What a wonderful man he is! I have often said that had I gone out and hand-picked a father-in-law, I would never have been able to get the gem I was given. I am very thankful for him!  It is also the birthday of my childhood friends (who were also neighbors for most of my growing years), David and Sam Jacobs. Happy Birthday to all three of these fine men!
Well, I finished the table runner. Here is my version of Patrick Lose's pattern - Autumn Leaves. I am sure if he ever saw this, he would see the flaws as well as the changes. I found his pattern in Quilting Celebrations  Fall/Winter 2011 issue. It is always fun doing up his patterns as he is a great artist and makes the projects easy to complete.
Here's a close up of the front:
Here's the back. I think it looks kind of cool

Sooo, thank you Patrick for the lovely pattern. Now it's in the mail and off to a new friend!
Hope you have a "sew" wonderful weekend!


  1. Cathy! It is so pretty! I love it! I love the colors you picked and I love the back with your outline of the leaves!!!! Very creative!
