From a Few Scraps

 It doesn't take much to distract me.

One of my clients brought me a handful of scraps from a quilt she brought me to quilt for her.

Did I have a use for them?  What a silly question!

In no time at all, I created this fun tablerunner.

I pretty much kept the pieces the size she gave them to me.  

The colors in the horse fabric in the center is amazing.  I used a dark blue peppered cotton that I have been hoarding for quite some time to frame all those lovely fabrics.  

I love all those oranges, purples and pinks.

One of the great things about small projects like this is you always have something in your stash for the backing.

Now that I found a home for those scraps, I can get back to working on all the other scrap projects in my sewing room.

We did have one really beautiful day that I was able to get outside.  But now I think we have rain in the forecast for over a week.  It will be a good time to stay indoors and sew!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

That's fun! I love the dark blue background against the bright blocks. Small projects like this are my favorites!

Not only backing, but small pieces of batting, too! Great use of those scraps.

The blue peppered cotton is a fantastic frame for the scraps. It's been raining here almost nonstop for 2 weeks so I'm ready to trade with you. Hopefully we get some sun. Have a great weekend! said...

What a fun use of some dynamic scraps. I love the dark blue background. Peppered cotton is such a fun fabric!
