Chips N Dip Table Runner

Momcat and I just finished this table runner top. If she doesn't pick up a subbing assignment tomorrow then we'll get it quilted, too.

It's another great pattern from the Dealer's Choice book by Atkinson Designs. That's the same book that we used for the Go Fish quilt.

There's a lot on the plate (but not in my food dish. Hhrrumph!). Momcat heads to court for the last time this Monday. The final hearing on the divorce is scheduled for 9 a.m.  From what I understand, she'll walk out of that proceeding officially, legally single for the first time in 31 years. That evening she also starts her new job at the customer service call center.

Sadly, she decided to leave her job at the quilt shop. Momcat is going to miss her friends at the shop and especially going to the shows. However, if I've learned anything from my Momcat at all, it's that she believes in moving forward to the next chapter.


Karen Montgomery of The Quilt Company was a recent guest at The River City Quilt Guild, to which Momcat belongs.  Karen's lecture on the process of getting fabric from the imagination of the designer to your local quilt shop was fascinating. 

She also brought along a wonderful trunk show. Sit back and enjoy, and if you ever get a chance to have Karen come to your guild, please do so.  She's an interesting, multi-tasking lady.


I hope you each take 15 minutes daily to create.

Hugs and purrs,
Piwacket and Momcat

I really like your table runner! I am thinking it would also look great in the Northwoods Botanical fabric from Moda for a Christmas gift.

Thanks for sharing the quilts from the truck show! They are all great. I do have my favorite one-or is it two- or maybe three!!!

Love your table runner, and thanks for sharing the beautiful quilts.

So sorry you're leaving your job at the quilt shop - I know it probably wasn't an easy decision for you. Best of luck as you keep moving forward, the only way to go. Hugs.

The table runner is so lovely. Will you get to count it in the stash report? I've missed you lately.

It is hard to make changes but I am sure it will be for the best. Hugs as you move forward.

Wonderful tablerunner. And thanks for the quilt show! I'm sure you have good reasons to leave employment at the quilt shop, but does that mean you no longer get a discount!?!
