I did end up sewing on one more border in the dark red Kona. I found a little bit of a beige neutral in my stash for the backing. It needed a little more width so I added some of this pretty brown, red, and blue print from a fat quarter I found in my stash also. I realized I liked this print so much, I squeezed out enough for the binding, too.
When I make little projects I usually enjoy experimenting with the quilting some. After stitching down the orange peels, I also outlined them on both sides and it created this fun pattern.
I love the texture the orange peels along with the batting and quilting give this little piece.
All in all, I am really pleased with how this table runner turned out! Another mini to add to my collection for decorating my table with, or maybe even to hang on the wall. I just need to find an empty wall!
My other scrappy sewing was to make a few blocks for Kat's Covered in Love August block drive. These were Disappearing Nine Patches made with black and white and one choice of three accent colors - bright yellow, lime green, or Caribbean blue. I made one of each and sent them off to her just the other day.
I have been enjoying participating in the monthly block drives for Covered in Love as often as I can. It helps me feel like I'm giving back in a small way, and I've learned some fun blocks, too!
