Sew & Tell Friday: It Seemed Like More...

I have been cutting and sewing all week and when I assessed my finished projects last night it was two small runners.  What?!  It felt like a lot more than that.  I'm participating in a boutique on July 31st in Bountiful and I want to have lots of stuff made.  Anyway, here are my faithful pumpkin seed table runners.  I used what was left of the Moda 3 Sisters Martinique fabric in my stash:

I used my favorite fabric (the blue version) from this line for the "seeds" or flower petals.  The polka dot in the middle is one of the leftover layer cake pieces and the trim is a fat quarter.  
Can you believe I've had that awesome Ball jar this whole time and I've never used it for a photo?

I think I used that back for a lot of stuff.

I put all of the leftover gray pieces from Martinique in a bag and this is what I came up with:
I like how different the gray is from the blue.  And why can't I just cut all the threads?
I had just enough of that dark coral for the dot in the middle of the flower.
I need to do a tea party with those teacups.
