The first scrap stack project I completed was this quilt made from the Honey Honey scraps. This next project is the second. I have a total of 8 or 9 scrap stacks up there on that shelf. Think I can clear them all out in 2013?
These are the scraps from this quilt. I pressed and measured them and found I had enough to make a small table runner. I love the Noteworthy line so I’m happy to put the leftovers to good use!
I trimmed off the selvedges, and cut each piece into strips of varying widths.
Then I arranged them. Two of the pink strips were shorter than the others so I pieced them with a scrap of white so they’d be usable.
I sewed the strips together, pressed it well, and then trimmed all of the edges. See how quickly this is coming together? Perfect for a scrap project!
I had a piece of Kona Tarragon that was the perfect size for the backing. The whole thing got a quick spray-baste and it was ready for some quilting.
I used my walking foot and did some slightly wavy lines down the whole length of the runner.
The little bit of wave in each line helped to soften up the look of the final table runner. I finished it with one more piece of scrap for the binding.
The finished table runner measures 18” x 28” and it does a fabulous job of brightening up my kitchen on those gray, rainy spring days!
