One more Scrappy Crossroads block

Today I finished block #2 of 3 for my new table runner. I think I will quilt this one on my longarm machine, and do some simple custom quilting on it. Have to finish the last block so i can load it up. Think each block measure 16". It's called "Scrappy Crossroads" and I found it at Lori Holt's blog.

I also did some cleaning up in my sewing corner today, and now I have the space to continue play with my happy scraps :-) My scrappy strips are still hanging on the longarm frame, but I will use up some of them before I store them in bins. Cutting a lot of strips makes it so much faster to sew something!
The rest of the sewing room still needs some organizing, since I have stacks of fabrics and stuff "everywhere" ;o)

While cleaning up I digged this little UFO out, my wallhanging from Brenda Riddle's pattern I bought when I attended her class at Quiltegården a while ago. I think my head was somewhere else when I attatched two of the rows, since the two blue blocks are not supposed to stand together. Need some time with my seam ripper and make it right, and attach the outer triangles. Then it's ready to be quilted. Love Brenda's fabric line Ambleside used in this quilt, and I will make some more projects with these fabrics :o)

Wish you all a great weekend, and happy sewing :o)
