A scrappy day!

My Kona Solid Scrap Basket is overflowing!  I need to make something!

I need a tablerunner for my outdoor table and these colours just said spring/summer to me.  I have a pattern from a few years and I figured I would give it a go with all these yummy fabric scraps.  Now my tablerunner will be ready to use soon as the outdoor furniture goes back on the deck in the spring.  I have lots of time to get it quilted.
The pattern I used is called "Cherry Pickin'" by Brenda/Barb Designs.  I omitted the appliqued cherries.

The floral fabric that I fussy-cut  for the centre 6 1/2" square is "Zinnia Garden" by Patty Young.  I have been hoarding a metre of this beauty for two years and decided it was time  to cut into it.

Another scrappy project.....Selvedges from African fabrics were given to me, so I sewed them together in colour sets and then cut squares from those sets.  raw-edge appliqued them to the background square, a little straight line quilting and Boom! a throw cushion.

For the back, envelope style with a selvedge strip sewn to the overlap edge.  tuck in a pillow form, Done!

I adore my scraps and selvedges so much.

Hope you have time to make something today.  Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Such lovely scrappiness on your post today! I love my scraps too - just as much as the yardage on my shelves :) And I get so tickled when I find something neat to make with selvedges! I may have to try to make a cute pillow like that from mine!
