Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday - "Leafing Out"

The last Project Quilting Challenge I created an all green table runner.  I named it "Leafing Out", partially because it was green and partially because you start with strips. Then you stitch them together and cut them. Then stitch again and the fabric spreads out throughout the quilt top.

At the quilt retreat last weekend, I asked three of my friends to bring five or six or more fabrics to make the table runner.  I wanted to take photos and see the table runner made in different colors.

Deb started with some leftover scraps from a quilt and will make her quilt top into a quilted pillow sham.

Linda brought six fat quarters.  She said she will make hers into a table topper.

Candy started with fat quarters too and she made hers into a long table runner.

Here is the link to "Leafing Out" if you would like to make one too! Fun and easy and a great way to use up scraps!
