Scrappy Happy Summer table runner

By the time you read this post, I will have moved from California to Arizona, a huge change for us!
While I was waiting for moving dates, there was a window where I had some extra time on my hands.
I quilted this table runner that I made four years ago!
I also machine quilted the Scrappy Crossroads table topper from last week's post, and my Appleicious quilt in next week's post :)
I have other quilts that need to be quilted, so I just finished the projects that I had warm and natural batting for, as in leftovers from other projects.

What a great feeling to get these WIPs finished!

I machine quilted in the ditch again, which isn't the most creative finish, but it worked for this table runner.

Lori Holt had a "sew along" for this table runner, four years ago.
I would always follow along in real time, you can see her post here.

Do you remember that I've been on a self imposed fabric fast this year?
It's such a good feeling to use up "some" of my fabric!

Scrappy bindings look great, but it's hard to use up your stash using scraps of fabric.

This sky blue fabric that I used for the background makes me really happy!

I used Lori Holt's "Sew Cherry" line of fabric for the scrappy stars.

My finished table runner looks so fresh and happy on my table with a vase full of flowers!
You can see the original post about this table runner, here.
When you read it, you'll see that I made a second table runner from the scraps :)

  1. Has it been 4 years?!? I too followed along with Lori and 'prettied' up many a dresser at the time. The sky blue background in your table runner looks lovely with these blocks. Wishing you safe traveling with your move and a feeling of coming home at your new place.
