A Friday Finish: Aqua Table Scraps Challenge

I'm late getting this posted as I finished it over last weekend.  It's always nice to have a finish -- even if it is small.

Without further ado here's my finished August Table Scraps Challenge runner.

I decided to use my Accuquilt Go Cutter and the 9" Cube.  I picked a pattern I liked, picked the fabrics and got on it.  I really like aqua, teal, turquoise the whole realm of blue greens.  Surprisingly I don't have all that much fabric in those colors.  Hum, I wonder if I use them a lot?  Could be. 

The block design is called Louisiana. It's basically 4 flying geese with 4 rectangles.  I chose to put these on point as I had just purchased a die called Setting Triangles - 9" Finished.  It's actually a design that will cut the setting triangles on the side and the smaller ones on both sides at the top and bottom.  Since I have the 9" cube it seemed like a reasonable add on for me. 

Did you noticed the floor? We've had a portion of our back deck turned into a 3 seasons room. (Or maybe I should call it a sun room.)  We've had wonderful weather for the past few days -- low humidity and temps below 80.  So much nicer than the high humidity and 95+ degrees.  The window and door in the great room open on to the sun room.  We've opened both and the windows in the new room.  It is wonderful with a nice breeze circulating.  We still need some electrical work done (and inspected) and to have the floor installed. And then add some furniture -- which luckily we already own!  

Back to the table runner....

Hum, I'd agree that the table runner is flat out best! (Of course, all the table runners I've made this year are flat out best!) 

Here's a peek at the backing too. As usual all of this fabric came from stash. It feels so good to use stash especially a few pieces I really like.  I'll enjoy seeing this runner on my table. 

Late but happy to share my August Table Runner with everyone. 

I'm linking up with a bunch of blogs today. Please take some time to visit these Linky Parties to find links to lots of great blogs. Here's the list: Midweek Makers,  Needle and Thread Thursday, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?, Finished or Not Friday, and Beauties Pageant. Hopefully I'll remember to link up Saturday to SOScrappy for the weekly RSC party.  

Enjoy your weekend!  I need to keep cutting pieces to make kits for the upcoming retreat. (Less than 3 weeks now!) 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. Nice table runner. If you add a heater to your new 3 seasons room, you can get 4 seasons out of it.

  2. Ooh can’t wait to see the new room!

  3. Lovely table runner. You’ll get a lot of use out of the sun room.

  4. Beautiful runner, better late than never right! We thought about turning our deck into a sun room but never looked into what it would take to do it. We replaced the floor of the deck instead, the old one was rotting out.

  5. Beautiful runner, Bonnie! Nice you could use your Accuquilt!!!

  6. That's really pretty! I like the blocks you came up with for it. Your new sunroom sounds wonderful!

  7. Nice table runner and isee a sunny sewing spot in your future

  8. A very pretty table runner. Love those colors too (I have lots of blue, but not much teal in my stash). Hope you were able to get in lots of stitching time this weekend.

  9. Great use of your new cutting die, Bonnie, and congratulations on your beautiful new TABLE SCRAPS Challenge runner!! I hope you'll link it when September's party goes live. Enjoy your upcoming retreat!

  10. Your table runner just sparkles! Your weather sounds wonderful. Give us here in southern IL a couple more weeks and we'll have that weather here too!

  11. ohhh It looks so good!!
    and what fun to convert your deck to a room you can use a lot!!!

  12. My August runner was late in finishing too! Now to get Septembers finished on quilting and bind it tomorrow. I hope! Love yours, it's so striking.
