Rainbow Challenge Scrap Happy Saturday

Here it is, the mindless green table runner. I just pulled scraps and sewed them together. I did organic quilting with a variegated green thread from Connecting Threads that is no longer available. I used my bamboo batting on this one and on the Canning Day table topper. It was a breeze to quilt. I'm really feeling quite lucky I found it for that price.
I will be spending the rest of the day doing some hand stitching in the family room while my wonderful husband watches television. You can see what everyone else made here.

These are the next victims fabrics on the cutting mat!

Very nice use of scraps - love the leaf print mixed in there. Perfect little runner for spring.

Love the use of scraps! I love the 4 patch quilt with the different borders in the header. I may use that for a quick quilt with some of my scraps. Very pretty quilts and some great inspiration on your website. Thanks so much!
