SCRAPS, SCRAPS, SCRAPS

I pulled a pile of scraps out of my baskets and shelves of my quilting studio and sliced off some 3 inch strips in various lengths depending on how much scrap there was to cut.  I do not need another runner.  This one will be for my youngest daughter, as she washes them to death having three boys ages 13, 10, and 8.  I guess meals can be a bit wearing on table runners at her house.  
This table runner picture done by Maureen Cracknell was my inspiration.  Not an exact match, but I thought I did a pretty good job of using up some scrap fabric that came to a reasonable and pleasing runner.
  While digging around for scraps I also found these blocks ready to go.  Where they end up given this rather long skinny runner I have no idea, but it is a cute item and it finished off a who bunch of scrap items.  
So I am linking up if for no other reason than to encourage those with tons of scraps to do something with them.

  3. I really like the combinaton of colors you put together for the table runner! That looks like a great way to sew a quick and easy one. I don't need anymore table runners, either, but I keep making them! :). They definitely do make nice gifts, too!
