As I was working my way through green scraps, my daughter sauntered into my quilting corner asking if I had a runner she could use on her dresser. Apparently, contact lens solution occasionally splatters onto the dresser when she opens the packaging and she would like something to protect the dresser surface.
What's a mom to do?
Sane mom: Suggest that she could simply take 5 seconds to wipe up the splatter when it happens.
Quilting mom: Root through the scraps for leftovers from daughter's bed quilt and whip up a little matching, improv, quilt as you go runner.
What can I say? It was an excuse to use up more scraps in my ongoing scrap mitigation project.
