Tablerunner from orphan blocks I was idiotic enough to buy on eBay. Because of course, I didn't have enough of MY OWN orphan blocks. Another of my famous, "what was I thinking?" times.

Halloween scraps, and viola! Another tablerunner

Christmas scraps..............
yup, you got it, tablerunner.

This one was actually my first finish from the quilt rack. These are from a charm pack that enticed me last summer. I thought that daughter number 3, who turned 21 last Thursday, needed a pretty tablerunner.
She loves yellow, so this one is pretty good for her. See the pincushion I'm using Flori??

Tiny finish!
This is actually double sided, more orphan blocks and I don't even remember where they came from.
I turned it into a candle mat or some such thing and it already has a home with a coworker.

Bigger finish!
Here is finally the strippy block of the month I made 2 years ago. I had the blocks sewn together, then Miss V pointed out that I had sewn February and March backwards. So there was picking involved, and then I actually sewed it onto some fleece, did minimal quilting and got it bound!
whew, how's THAT????

Very inspiring and oh so lovely - all of them, but I am partial to the halloween runner :D.

Now come back and please explain what exactly a butter burger is??? We don't have a Culver's in VA and it sounds so decadent lol :)

Bravo! I'm cheating and giving my orphans to a friend as part of my August sewing room clean-up. I love the table runners. Gotta put 1 or 2 on my Sept. goals list.

First, yes, I do see the pincushion you are using! Second, I love the strippy quilt, but I love the toes sticking out from under it even more! That is fabulous!
