Hope Valley Table Runner
A little finish today with some scraps! Made from 2 inch strips and squares I had left over from my Hope Valley Quilt, and 2 inch strips of Essex Linen in Putty I pulled from my 2 inch strip bin. I also was able to bind it in 2.5 inch strips I had left over from binding my Swoon Quilt way back in the fall. It's a woodgrain print from Timeless Treasures, I think. The backing was from an old sheet!
I have been using Bonnie Hunter's system for storing my scraps and I really love it. Whenever I am done a project, I cut the scraps into useable pieces: 1.5 inches (strips and squares), 2 inches, 2.5 inches or charms. Then they are ready to go for whatever I want to make. Like this postage stamp table runner!
