Give Thanks Table Runner
We made this runner for the "Giving Day". Our family had moved 14 times in 18 years, yes I was a navy brat....so we always had a huge dinner on thanksgiving with any of the military men and ladies my mum and dad would always invite them. So we called it the "Orphan Dinner" for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was always the two days we loved alot. So we have adopted the tradition too. So we made this runner to the "orphan dinner" and also one for Christmas. The borders were really important on the runners, on the Give Thanks runner I had some extra dresden fall flower and I cut them in two and appliqued them on the border and it looks like the Turkey Fan Tail. On the christmas runner it has a quilting technique called "railroading" look close at it, it is awesome.
