    I plan to make the table runner. I think this will be perfect for my new dining table and the directions are easy to follow. I am a new quilter and this project is perfect for me as a beginner. Thank you sew much!

    Great idea, I’ve been looking forward to using my greens and blues jelly roll. This is a fun item to make for a fundraiser donation. Would it be alright as long as I give you credit for this pattern? Thank you!
