Quiltsy Team Scrap Challenge for June

I belong to a fabulous group of quilters on Etsy - Quiltsy Team, and we instigated a challenge to make a quilt from scraps during May and June.  Was that ever fun, and you just have to see all the terrific quilts that were made out of our scraps!  You can check out the Pinterest Board and enjoy all the wonderful creativity.  That being said, I made this table runner:

So pretty!  And there was no fussy picking and choosing involved.  I had a pile of 3 7/8 inch triangles that I had cut from scraps years ago taking up space in a little storage drawer.  I just pulled them out and sewed a print to a white (or muslin) triangle.  Then I arranged them into broken dishes blocks and threw them up on the design board.
I think I might have moved a block or two, but that was it!  I sewed it all together and found a fun piece of fabric for the back and quilted it up in a quick meander with off  white Aurifil thread.

I found a cute fabric to frame it for binding and now it's a finished table runner:
I love doing my binding totally by machine!  If you haven't downloaded a copy of my No Hand Stitching binding tutorial, it's available on PayHip - and it's free!

Scrappy projects like this are just the best, aren't they? Each fabric brings back memories and they all mingle together so nicely. It'll look awesome on your table!
