Emergency Quilted Table Runner for my sister's birthday

My sister's birthday is this Monday and she's been hinting a long time now that she wants a quilt. I don't have a ton of time these day being self-employed. I just remembered I hadn't blogged in quite a while but I didn't realize how time flies. Haven't done much in creativity of late but I've been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing and I 'started' finishing up some quilts that have been waiting a long time to be quilted. I finally finished quilting Fred's little doggy blanket and am binding it right now.

Then I came across a bunch of purple fat quarters that I can't remember what I was going to do with them so I decided to pull out the AccuQuilt Go! machine and create a table runner for my sister's birthday present. I hate cutting so the die cutter helped cut quickly and focus all my time on sewing. Table runners are easy and can get put together fast! Not going to do anything fancy in terms of a quilt design since her birthday is coming up in a few days...Why I wait til the last minute is beyond me. Hopefully I can stall and make her happy until I can actually find time to finish the quilt I started a while back (she doesn't know about it yet).

I have to say, I forgot the satisfaction a person gets when a quilt top gets done!
