Default What can you make with 1.5 yards of striped fabric?

This is what I got out of my 1.5 yard of floral striped fabric. I used up all but 2 small pieces that were left when a larger triangle was cut down to a smaller size.
The long pieces are 2 table runners and the third (narrow) will go on top of a set of bookshelves.
The hexagon (?) pieces came from left over triangles--there are 4 unused triangles in each long piece.
The end pieces off each long piece I sewed together and made the diamnond shaped piece--different looking on each side.
It became a game to see how much I could make out of my l cut of fabric. They all have to be finished with batting and backing. Probably be a job for this week.

I love those 60 degree table runners. I've been lucky sometimes to need two and then I have enough for the small one made out of the leftover triangles. Love the fabric you chose.

Wow, you sure squeezed every square inch out of that fabric! What a great idea. You're very clever.

wow...you did good...there is something to be said for NOT cutting the fabric into TINY bits before you sew it back together again..sometimes, BIG pieces are better!
