Another Project from Leftovers


I made this little tablerunner yesterday.  A few years ago I made a quilted wallhanging from these blocks.  I found the block pattern on the web and used a charm pack.  I used most of the squares.  While organizing my studio I found these leftovers in a bag and stitched into a tablerunner.  The backing and binding are leftover fabric from a tote bag. 
I decided to use a stipple stitch.  It's been quite awhile since I did stippling but I think it turned out nicely.  I stippled with the backing facing up.  I find the blocks sometimes get in the way of free motion stitching.  By stitching on the back, you still get lovely stitches on the top.  I continue to use my scraps and leftovers.   It is fun to see what you can come up with.  I'm now working a a few squares using a circular template and scraps from the scrap basket.

OHHHH Lovely piece!! That matches the fabric color scheme that I am going to use in my bedroom! In fact I have that aqua and red flower fabric. I can hardly wait to get started on it, but have too many other projects going on at the moment.
