Kelli’s chickens

11 05 2011

The first piece I quilted with my new HQ Sweet Sixteen was a gift — a table runner/place mat for Kelli. Kelli has just moved from Arizona to Colorado — new home, new job, new phase of her life — and one of the things she wants when she gets settled is some chickens. She’d asked me if I could make a table runner/place mat to match the chicken coasters I have for sale in my Etsy store, and how much would it be.

Instead of charging her, I decided the table runner/place mat + a set of coasters would make a nice house moving/housewarming gift for her. I hope she likes them!

All the applique work was done on my domestic sewing machine, a Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 870, and the quilting was done on my new Sweet Sixteen.

Update: Kelli must be one of the few people left in the world to handwrite thank you cards:
