Scrapping some more

I'm finally on the home stretch of a runner I promised a little while back. It just needs quilting and binding now, both of which I'd like to finish up before Christmas. I've used some more of my Thimbleberries faux applique fabric (some of which I put aside for Pam - must get that in the mail!) and a pile of my 2.5" scraps and strips.

Honestly - the strip tubs are like the 'Magic Pudding' - it seems the more I use, the more is in there - they never go away!

And since I had a request on Etsy the other day, I've started constructing a couple of Sewing Machine Mats. They'll be done soon I hope - one of which will be off to a new home, and the other - well, who knows, but since it's just as easy to make two as it is to make one, I just thought I'd continue on the scrap-busting journey.

Thank you to everyone for the lovely comments on the 'Back Home Again' quilt top. I'm really thrilled with it, and I'm so much looking forward to quilting it some time next year.

The table runner looks good. Isn't it great to use scraps and have something just so right come out of it?
Hope you have a fun Christmas!

Love your runner - I'm a sucker for that warm scrappy look with lots of golds!

The sewing machine mats are so pretty too...boy but does it every look better with that featherweight resting upon it! :)
