    Got Scraps

    My sister spent most of the week with me and this is what we made. We ended up making five table runners. These are quilt as you go. Web site is quiltershaven.net. Called Got Scraps. Makes a pretty quilt. Especially a baby quilt. But...I am going to use just 2 colors next time. Anyway, far from perfect, but we made memories. Made one for my sister, myself,my daughter, my niece, and our sister who lives in NM. Thanks for looking.

    I did these last year for Christmas in green and red and added an extra "petal". Just in case you're interested and I too love the technique.

    This week I am madly baking pear pies from my gifted box of pears. I will see if I can do a table topper next week in the same technique and post it in tutorials.

    Both are absolutely beautiful. I really like the scrappy one. I really like the colors in it. I agree will be perfect for a fall table topper.

    I posted the tutorial under Faux Flowers since I finished up my pies early and I had a bit of time. I hope you can follow the steps. The Water Lily is just one section but you can add as many sections as you like for the runner.
