Cowboy Table Runner Project

Here's the cowboy table runner on the frame. I was going for a lasso look with lots of loops in the background. Besides the obvious advantage of being fun and easy, this type of background quilting makes the motif images pop up. I love doing this on kids quilts! This little project has a variegated LAVA on top #214 Sandy Beach with a red Bottom Line pre-wound in the bobbin. I made the Table Runner reversible because ... Cowboy parties only happen every now and then.
We all had a great time at the party. I've had fun today putting together a couple of slide shows. Click the top right photo for a slide show with music and special effects. Click the frame photo on the bottom right for a more basic show. And thanks for emailing some great party ideas!

Your Cowboy Table Runner is cute! Love the western picture of your family (?) and friends too.

Thanks Angie. We're in the colour photo. You can see how the kids have grown; some even have facial hair! The rest of the party is in black and white on the side bar.

Love your slide show. How nice. Looks like your family is a "real family" and enjoys each other.
