RSC March: Yellow and Table Scraps Challenge


Just in the nick of time, I'm jumping on the caboose to get this posted! 
It's been a busy month and many apologies to those who commented on my last post as I haven't responded to any of your sweet words. 

Just to let you know... Mary loved, loved, loved her new table runner! She has it spread out on her kitchen island as her table has an Easter tablecloth
 on it and the colors clash when set together. 

This month the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) color was yellow. 
My scrap bucket/basket/pile was not abundant with yellow, 
so I added part of a charm pack to make the above table topper. 

A few years back, I won a set of Twister templates from Twisted Sisters Designs.
The template I used in this project was the Lil' Twister and it has us use 5" squares.

Here, I've got my basic 6 x 4 patch laid out and ready to sew.

Now, it's sewn together with an added 3" border.

Now comes the fun part!

Cutting it up!
(Yes, it does seem to create a lot of waste, 
but that just means I have more scraps to make something else!)

And here are the squares sewn back together.
See all the pretty pinwheels?
It was a learning lesson for me, as I realized that light background fabrics
should be surrounded by darker ones to make them pop.
Next time.

I added a dark blue polka dot border and FMQd away!

A light blue binding was added and just like that, I had a new table topper!

The Twister template was super easy to use and was really fun! 
I look forward to using the other sizes I have too and make some holiday projects. 

Wondering what I did with some of those yellow bits and bobs?
I made a batch of IFAQH hearts!

  1. I’m seeing some fun “Twisted” projects lately. I haven’t made a twisted project in years. I need to pull that template out and get it on a to-do list again. Using it for a table scraps project is a fun way to use it. And you ended up with a great Spring table runner! I love your light background fabric as it has allowed the pinwheels to appear to be floating, I love that!

  2. Super cute addition to the March 2022 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge, Kathy! That charm pack worked well with your YELLOW scraps. Thanks for sharing it with the Link Party!

  3. What a lovely little table topper! Your yellows are so pretty. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  4. I love your Twister quilt!!! So much fun to make!!!

  5. Oh I love your yellow project with the complimentary blue. Of course use the scraps for IFAQH! Great idea!

  6. Your lil twister quilt is just darling. Great use of your yellows too!
