Yesterday we celebrated my niece Grace’s 3rd birthday (it’s actually next Saturday), and today was my mom’s birthday. We went to Quilt Fest NJ to see her very first quilt entered into competition.

This project of course came from the supremely inspiring Purl Bee, and it was originally conceived as a Thanksgiving Runner. The benefit of having made one already is that I already know measurements and difficulty, and now I can tweak to make it better.
