I finished up a quilted table runner for my sister’s 55th birthday… I can’t wait to see her eyes pop when she opens the package! Might have to make another one like it for me, that’s how much I love it!!

    The book arrived just before I had to leave on a trip last week. I loved perusing through it while spending hours in the car. Thank you again for this unexpected treat! I look forward to not only sewing some of the patterns, but re-reading the historical information about some of our First Ladies too.
