Killing Many Birds With One Stone

I needed to make a gift, my strip bin was over flowing, and I can always use practice on my free motion quilting.  So combining these objectives I made a simple table runner.   Just random low volume strips, a couple pieced ones thrown in for fun.
I have a board on pintrest that I pin quilting designs I want to try.  I had fun trying a few of these out in each of the strips; feathers, hearts, l's and e's, leaves, etc.  I find a small project like this is good for practice.  I can try lots of things and there isn't the bulk of a quilt to complicate things.
I'm pretty pleased with the results.  And happy to get to check off a few things on the to do list.
