ABC Table Scraps for September

This month's Table Scraps project is brought to you by the color aqua and the letters P and Z!

In my continuing quest to use up orphan blocks this year, I came across these pieces:

I knew these were leftover from the 2020 Color Challenge aqua block, but where was the center of the block?  Turns out, I took the block apart and used the center pinwheel in this quilt - can you find it?

Having just a few small orphan blocks meant my Table Scraps project would be a small one this month, but that's okay.  I pressed them and sewed them back together into this design - 
6.5 x 18.5 inches

A little quilting and some binding later, and here's the finish!

But wait, that doesn't have much pizzazz!  This little table mat needed something extra - so considering the season we're in - how about some pumpkins?  

There we go!

Aqua and a little extra pizzazz - P and Z!

It fits just right on the little chest by the front door, 
and is perfect to help display some fall decorations, too!

You are so good at coming up with something each month for the challenge! I forget to do it. Do you use poly fill to stuff your little xstitch bowl fillers?

great photos leading us to follow your process. I thought the quilting really added so much, movement and unifying the sharp angles into one piece. Really looks good on your table too!
