2014 NewFO Challenge - May

My husband and I went to Memphis to visit our daughter and needed someone to watch our cats.  My sister-in-law volunteered to care for them for us.  She came over every day to check on the cats and make sure they had plenty of food and water.  I wanted to do something to thank her for taking care of them and decided to make her a table runner.  She's very fond of maple leafs so I included one in her table runner.



I had fabric that had lots of maple leafs on it and used that for the backing.



I am a member of the Denver Chapter of the Green Bag Lady Project and I used the same pattern that I use for those bags to make a bag for my sister-in-law's table runner.  You can watch a video to learn about the Green Bag Lady Project.



Visit Barbara over at Cat Patches to see what others started this month. Happy quilting everyone!
