The family of a quilting friend who passed away last year offered her stash for those of us in her quilting group to share, and since I love fabric with stars, I knew I would enjoy making something out of this collection. We are invited up to my SIL's cabin this weekend, and I thought this would be the perfect fabric to make her a little something to say thanks for the invite.
After cutting some 2.5 by WOF strips into 4.5 inch bricks, I sewed them into a red, white, and blue table runner that I think will work nicely for a mountain cabin. It measures about 17 x 29.
It was fun to pretend to decorate my own table for the holiday weekend with this table runner!
Of course, since I am in that "one thing leads to another" mode lately, I couldn't put the scraps from this project away and move on to something else, so I decided to keep going with red, white, and blue, and ended up with this little mini to keep for my house.
It was fun to start with, "I wonder if I could..." and end up with a (sort of) flag! Since taking this photo, I've finished the quilting and will be stitching the binding down this evening while watching a little TV.
Have a fun and safe holiday weekend! I'll be sharing this at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday and on Sunday at Oh Scrap over at Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
