sewing saturday table scraps autumn

 Welcome to this week's Sewing Round up!

Remember all the scraps from making the kaleidoscope quilt a while back, and I made all I could into 60 degree triangle blocks like this one...

then tried to arrange them into a new to me configuration

about 21" X 50"

  Here it is quilted, and ready to use! 

  I would show you some of the other configurations but I'm afraid I liked one of them better (in hindsight which is 20/20) 

  I like the strong but interrupted vertical lines of scraps and the triangle lines that show up as well. 

  It was too narrow so I added in the center strip of precious hoarded leaf fabric...








I found a cute brown backing fabric in the stash,  of coffee beans...

since it's almost 50" long I needed more fabric, so I  inserted one I love...

Not particularly a lover of tan or brown, I have always loved that little rose and brown print, and think it looks kind of French

 

the edge was covered by bringing the excess backing to the front and hand stitching it.

It looks very nice on our table bringing the colors of the outdoors in for the season

thank you to Joy at https://thejoyfulquilter.blogspot.com/2021/10/october-2021-table-scraps-runnertopper.html  for the inspiration to make another table topper!

I'm finished quilting the next piece and in process of binding it. I suspect I'll call it November's table scraps finish so it will be a while before I share that. I plan to work in neutrals for November, so stay tuned to see more scrappy love around here! For now... this was full of ideas...

It looks wonderful on your table. I am so amazed at how those triangles still show up so well, but yet that vertical line is there too. Excellent job!

Love the center hoarded fabric, too. It is such a pleasure to look at all the lines.

Bonnie said...

Wow! Your table runner is great. And... did you really quilt each triangle separately? The quilting really makes the finished project so fabulous.

This is just luscious for autumn! It makes me really eager to see the Kaleidoscope quilt. (Or did you post it, and I missed it?)

Marsha Cooper said...

I'm at it again...seeing a quilt that I would like to make. I'm going to keep these string triangles in mind for sure.
