There has been a lot "talk" of the site concerning left over pieces. I my first quilt was made in a class over two years ago. It was three sewn strips cut into pieces then pieced together in altering directions. The quilting was various decorative stitches on my new Brother 1200. I was straightening up my sewing room (used more for storage. My real sewing room is the dining room.) I found the leftovers. I used them to make a 60 inch table runner and 8 place mats.
