Weekend sewing

This weekend was too hot to do anything but stay inside in front of the fan with a huge glass of sweet tea! I set up shop in my sewing nook and made this little quilted table runner from my scrap pile.

It went together in a day. I pieced long strips on the machine and cut them to make the smaller squares. I used a free form stitch to quilt the front to the back.

It's colorful, rustic, and totally NOT perfect....but I love it!

I wonder how long it will take before the boys rip it off the table and use it as a cape or blanket for Abby.....*sigh*

That looks awesome!
I am hoping to add learning to quilt to my winter to do list... we get so little warm weather here that not much crafting gets done in the summer. :)

Did you make squares for front and back?
Did you use anything inbetween front & back?
My aunt made one for my baby and I took it around to use for diaper changing.
