A Quilted Gift

Last week I received a beautiful gift in the mail from my mom – a quilted runner that she had made:

My girls and I opened the parcel with excitement and oohed and aahed when we discovered what was inside. I find the quilts that my mom makes since her retirement beautiful and was pleased to receive a small piece of her work.

I have placed the runner on top of the coffee table in the living room. I now see it everyday when I pass the table and can enjoy it when I sit on the sofa. It brings colour and beauty to the corner of the room.

What graces your coffee table?

  1. I’m more excited about the embroidery. I’ve only done hand embroidery myself but people seem to think that machine embroidery is easier when in fact it takes a lot of trial and error to perfect too.


  2. Such a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, Colline. Your Mother is obviously very talented and what a nice gift for your to cherish. I’ve a number of magazines on my coffee table, all of which were published the month or week of my birth. 🙂


  3. That quilt looks gorgeous. I love handmade stuff. They’re always made with love and I’m sure that was the way with your quilt. In the flat where I currently live in, I don’t have a coffee table but a small table that I pull out for guests (to save space and make my place less cluttered). I always like to put some newspapers and colourful coasters on it, nothing as nice as yours! 🙂
