I'm really fortunate to have several of my grandmother's quilts, and, most importantly, her sewing machine. When I was young, maybe 10 or so, long before I started sewing, she would always tell me that it would be mine some day. Every summer, when we'd visit her on the farm, my brother and I would spend many happy hours with the treadle, trying to make it go as fast as it can. (Okay, maybe not hours, but definitely minutes!)

The modern table runner is made with Authentic by Sweetwater. The setting represents two generations of quilters: my grandmother, an authentic modern quilter for her time, and me, an authentic modern quilter of my time.. And the dog biscuits? Just for fun. (Animal loving also skipped a generation ~ and I like the way they look in the apothecary jar!)
