Courthouse Steps

Today I finished my Court House table runner for the sew along over at i have to say. Thanks Randi for the great motivation to use up some scraps!
At first I was stumped. I needed enough neutrals, and my little pea brain couldn't figure out how to have enough. I just didn't have enough off whites. Then a good online buddy,Leslie, mentioned that she was using gray.


So I mixed my grays and off whites. That is so far from my comfort zone it is scary! I just kept telling myself, it is scrappy. I was so relieved when it actually worked.
For the back, I used strips of the same fabrics. The only exception was the seed packet scrap which is from a fat quarter that was hanging out and lonesome in my stash. I just love how this turned out!

    I'm having trouble with a table runner I want to get made. It's a simple one, I just don't know how to tie it...quilt it, or whatever.
