My Quick Summertime Project

Nothing says summer like farm fresh produce.  As I was attempting to clean up some my fabric stash, I came across a small stack of partially used fruit and vegetable fat quarters that I had purchased years ago for a group project.  I knew they weren't anything that I would need in the future so rather than put them back, I decided to sew them up into a summertime table runner.




Very simple, just strips of fabric in varying widths.  I did piece in a strip with black in it for a bit of interest (and to use up some of the smaller scraps).



But one table runner soon turned into three!  Amazing how far you can stretch a tiny bit of fabric.
Guess a few of these will be going into my Etsy shop.  But at least the fabrics are all gone!




I even used up this old leaf print for the backs on all of them.  
Now I am off to see what else I can get off my shelf!

I have some of the same fabrics left in my stash and you've given me an idea of what to do with them.
