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.
