My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey


Hello everyone!

A few months ago the talented ladies from Gray Barn Designs released a free pattern “Thankful Table Runner”.

It was love at first sight for me and knew it would be the perfect display on our dessert table for Thanksgiving.  The pattern is super easy, and well written.

I also made matching courthouse quilt block placemats to use as hot pads.

I had hoped to make a pumpkin quilt this fall but never found time, instead I made a mini quilt wall hanging.

My first grandchild was born this week and I am extremely thankful! We are leaving in the morning to meet her and spend time with the family.

I wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving!


Until next time…

  5. Hi Karla, your table runner looks wonderful as do your wall hangings. They all feel so welcoming for fall.
