Strip-Easy Pieced Challenge: Scrappy Table Runner

The Strip-Easy Pieced Challenge is here and today I am linking up to Pieced Brain's linky. There will be lots of others linking up what they created too, so be sure to check out all of the blogs who linked up. Great way to get ideas for what to do with your scraps of fabrics.
I used mostly batik scrap strips I had in my scrap bag to create this table runner. See that one strip above that's pink and blue, I pieced it on the diagonal to make a long enough strip. I even used 2 different bias binding scraps I had leftover from other projects for the binding. Plus I also used scraps of batting that you cannot see, but I pieced those batting pieces together as well. So this is a true scrappy project, lol!!!
I used a couple of strips of fabric that I had created using stamps and stencils. The one with the bird stamp above.
Simple straight quilting in a variegated thread is what I used.
I  created this table runner just like the scrappy table runner tutorial pattern that I have for free on Craftsy. Click on the Scrappy Table Runner pattern on the side bar under my Craftsy patterns (scroll through until you see the table runner) to get to that free tutorial and you can download it from Craftsy for free. It's fast, fun and easy to make.
My hubbie wanted a table runner for the top of the computer table where our laptop, scanner and printer sit. Even though this runner is pretty covered up now, it does add a bit of color and protects the table too. He was pleased with it and so am I.
 Please go and check out the other participants in the Strip-Easy Quilt Challenge at Pieced Brain. I will link mine to her link party as soon as I can, so if you don't see mine linked yet it's because we all live in different time zones and I might still be snoozing here, lol!!!! Check back to the link party often so you can see all who do link up.

  6. Hi Daryl, I love this simple pattern because of something you taught me. You have often used a pattern like this and then layered it with an applique. The batiks really pop, it looks great.

  19. I've only recently pieced batting scraps together and it's amazing how large a piece you can get from a few scraps. A great way to use up some of your fabric scraps, Daryl.
