Fall Topper

Recently i was looking at my bare dining room table and thought it needed something. I had this runner that had been displaced when we sold the table it used to live on, so i threw it on...why not?

But the weather cooled down and breezes began to blow and the leaves started falling from the trees and somehow this springy green table runner seemed out of place.




SO Saturday i cut some strips of varying widths from a stash of fabric i had set aside for a quilt and made this log cabin block....bordered it with some solid brown and osnaburg i had in my stash.




It is more of a table topper than a runner...and i think it needs a little something on it to make it look more complete...that will come.




I used quite a few of my favorites in there....the DS tan floral...Momo wonderland floral...and the pez in red. love those pez. Did you know American Jane is selling them again?

I am linking this up to Amylouwho's sew and tell.... and Crazy Mom Quilts! it is so fun to see what everyone else has made. Go check it out.
