Easy table runner!

I whipped up this table runner yesterday in about an hour from fabric I bought a few years ago (you may remember my obsession with blue and white china). I sandwiched a piece of leftover quilt batting between two pieces of fabric, edged it with wide bias tape, and sewed along the edge of the bias tape to secure everything. I love the way the runner adds color to the table and pulls the dining room together. I have a small piece of this fabric left. Hmm, what to make? A matching runner for the buffet, maybe?

Seventh and last summer top finished (finally)

My friend Lisa and I made the last top using the Burda pattern from top #5 and the leftover sparkly knit fabric from top #6. I think it looks fantastic and didn't cost anything to make.

Yay, Seven Summer Top challenge completed! What to do next?
