Or the Germans would call it a table runner and decorate their dining room table with it. When I sew a patchwork I am often inspired by a song or fairy tale. This time I couldn’t get ‘Ich wollt’, ich wär ein Huhn’ (I wish, I was a chicken) out of my head. Max Raabe has performed this song out of the Foxtrot era brilliantly. The theme was then continued in the quilting process. I had a whale of a time quilting these designs.
