Yellow and Blue

Yellow and Blue for my sister true...
She has wanted a yellow and blue kitchen for a long time. Now she has it. It is fabulous! I got to see it last month. Thought I'd better get her center island"football field"tablerunner done! It is! I love it and hope she does too. Done just in time for her 50th, or...oops 49th birthday on August 10th. This is a design that I kyped from Anina of Twiddletails.
It was fun and easy to quilt on my 35+ year old machine. It is 24" x 62"

I pieced part of the back with square in a square blocks.

It's ok if she sees it here, she picked the fabrics. If you'd like to see the one I made for my table last year, go here.
Take Care~~

Wahoo, wahoo, wahoo! It looks so, so purty, and I wish I would have met you to snatch it from your hands. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I think it will be great.
