I checked Joy's blog this morning and yup - as it is the last weekend of the month it is time for the table scraps challenge link up!
I had played with my crossed canoe die earlier this month thinking it would make a cute table runner. I still think that.... but maybe next month!
I was cleaning off the sewing table/cutting mat area and found a stack of these leftover scraps from my 5 inch charms I used to make my applique hearts.
I had sewed 4 together to get a middle piece that was usable. Well, those got pressed and cut into 6 - 4.5 inch squares and there are 3 - 4 inch ones still to 'process'. I had some leftover 1.5 inch black ends of strips from the Snowman quilt I just finished. That worked to attach them together. I didn't have enough to go around the outside. I decided to just finish it off with a little machine quilting. I pulled 2 little strips of leftover purple bindings in slightly different shades that got spliced together and finished this off with about 4 inches left over. I'd say this truly is a 'scrap buster'! If you look close at the bottom you can see the 2 different color purple bindings =).
