Aunt Bessy's Sparkle Runner is the latest Small Wonders Quilt Pattern. The pattern is named after my Aunt Bessy who always had a great sense of humor and a welcoming smile.
Aunt Bessy's Sparkle Table Runner started with a pile of scraps left over from various quilts. i had a pile of half square triangle units left over so I pieced them all together and came up with the center for the table runner. I love the idea of using left overs to create a unique quilt.
I then added a little applique in the border to complete the quilt.
