Low volume table runner

My second and final submission to the Strip Easy Quilt Challenge is done and on the table.
I used leftover strips from my low volume quilt, Robert Kaufman Essex linen for the borders, and it measures a whopping 18.5 x 51.5.

A little wavy line quilting and scrappy backing made this table runner happen in an afternoon.  Seriously, if I'd known there were great projects to be made with all my leftover strips I would have done this a long time ago.  Thanks Denise for a very motivating challenge!  I'm not done digging through that basket yet, since I'm still plugging away on my crochet rag rug.

And here are my blocks so far for the Pack Patch QAL.  I really didn't like a few of my fabric choices until I laid all the blocks out together.  It's starting to grow on me. We have 4 more weeks to go, and this Friday we get our next block "theme".  How we are going to put this all together is a mystery, but I'm enjoying the 2 block weekly updates on Flickr, and will miss it when we're done.

Hope your week is magical.

    great table runner and even more so when you think it is made of scraps of fabric. You know as much as I love crochet I always prefer a fabric table runner.

    keep well

  5. So very pretty, I love the look of the flowers also.

  6. Hello, I've just found your delightful blog, I'm going to enjoy a little wander around your posts....this is lovely! :) x

  7. I love this. The scrappy look is always my favourite and you have done a great job putting it all together. I really need to invest in some low volume fabrics.

  8. I like the runner Lynne, it's very pretty and looks lovely with those gorgeous flowers. Such a good and useful way of using scraps, a runner always looks great.
    Loving those blocks too - it's such a great way of using up a few less favourite fabrics I find, as they tend to stop a quilt looking too "pretty"! Be interested to see the final quilt, it will look wonderful.
    Have a good day!

  9. Lovely! I like low volume style. It is kind of Zakka with linen :-)

  10. Your low volume table runner would take a month of Sunday's and more for me to make.
    I love it.
