No blog?  No problem, you will be able to have your scrappy table runners/toppers hosted here on The Joyful Quilter.  Just pop me an email with your name and a photo of your completed project and I will add it to a Guest Blogger post.

First and foremost, I want to publicly apologize to Jane in Australia and Connie W. for neglecting to link-up their posts with the February 2021 Table Scraps Link Party.  Due to technical difficulties (read operator error) I was only allowed ONE link from my blog.  I will be linking those YELLOW projects with March's GREEN ones.  Of course, you all know that using the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Color of the Month is only a suggestion... NOT a requirement for participation.

From our participants...

I found this sweet mini mat at the Flamingo Toes when exploring the link from Britt_Quilts last month:

Then Nann @ With Strings Attached was back with a Scrappy Table Topper link and one for FREE Placemat Patterns.

Here's an idea for Strings that I got from Julie @ JulieKQuilts:

Got favorites???

Email me , if you have a "go to" runner or topper pattern.  I'll add it to a future post.  Thanks!

Where's the table covering, Joyful???

I'm getting to that.  Since it was GREEN month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I pulled out this Quilted Scrap Basket:

You can find the tutorial HERE.


What happened next was a little bit of cutting and some sewing:

It went fairly fast this month.  You might have seen the details in THIS POST a couple of weeks ago.

Here is my March TABLE SCRAPS Challenge piece...


In place on my handcrafted table our foyer:

Until next time...
It's a Cover Up!!!


  1. I like your table mat. It looks like a liberated log cabin; one of my favourite blocks. Well it's more than a block it's a way of thinking!

  2. I love the greens you picked for your mat, and also the spiral quilting. Looks perfect for your handcraft table Joy! Thanks for hosting this inspiring challenge. Hugs

  3. Pretty table mat! Thanks for the links - both those projects look interesting. Like I need another interesting project - lol!

  4. Love the greens in your little mat, and the spiral quilting too!

  5. This was a very fun month--your green topper fills the green goals!

  6. Love the circular quilting on your March project!
    Not sure if I will finish mine on time since it says the linky expires in 2.5 days... I'll try hard!

  7. I like the way you quilted your pretty green little mat! Thanks for letting in my rogue project this month!

  8. I like your idea of a monthly table topper challenge. I hope to have another next month!

  9. Ok, that white bear in the green basket is too cute! Great runner. Maybe I'll be a little quicker with the blues.
