Quick Quilts

I usually have some odds and ends laying around.  A project I started and didn't pursue or an left over piece because I made too many.

One thing I always do with the smaller scraps is to sew them together and create a roll of pieced strips to use at a later date.

It occurred to me I could combine all my odds and ends into a little quilt for the top of the outside table.   Not that it needed it, but there was a bare surface that could be quilted.

I attached an edging to it that I then inserted some elastic to hold it on the table, keeping the design nice and flat.

It turned out pretty nice and took no time at all since I had a hunk of prequilted fabric left from when I made the chair covers.

Long Live the Queen of Compulsive Quilting


  1. This is what I mean when I say you are an incredible creative energy. You never cease to amaze me. Your pieces are practical, but unique and beautiful.

  2. Love it. Happy colors. Makes me smile.

  3. Well now I 'm caught up with your posts. Goodness, you have been busy. I love your quilts. I would never have thought to make one for a table, but this is just lovely. You have an awesome talent my friend. Have a great time here, and be careful when it is finally time to head south and east. There is flooding everywhere. Be safe and happy travels. Hugs, Edna B.
