Small Quilts

Well, table runners actually.

I made these in the last few days of Ramadhan. It started of with me fooling around with some scraps. I made a nine-patch.  Then some more scraps and nine patches. Soon I had enough for a little quilt top. So in came the sashing, some backing, quilting and binding later and voila!

This runner now lives on the edge of my desk at the office (the work one). 

I think it fits pretty nicely and adds a bit of colour to my otherwise drab little space.

Of course once I got going I just had to make another. This next one came along pretty quickly too. It's a little wider and longer than the one I have on my desk, but actually took less time to make (less piecing - no nine patches!).

I wasn't too sure about the colour  scheme (bit on the bright side don't you think?) but Yummy Hubby loves it, so I guess that settled it. 

Completed just in time to decorate our kitchen for Eid.

Wishing everyone a happy weekend - have a great September!

Mama D, the FMQ is just a simple stipple - nothing special...
