Two More Flimsies from Pansy Fabric

I spent today piecing two new flimsies. Both tops are made from the pansy collection of fabrics I purchased in Oregon when I was there over a year ago. This fabric seems to go on forever as I continue to piece projects from it in an attempt to use it up.

This first flimsy is a table topper. I made this one from 2 1/2" strips instead of the usual 3" strips. This one finishes at about 27" across. The purple fabric on the outer edge really looks blue in this picture. This next flimsy is a table runner from Terry Atkinson's book, Let's Do Lunch. This one finishes at 16 1/2" x 66" - nice and long. Terry calls this one Seven Layer Salad. Even after piecing these two tops, I still have more of this pansy collection left!

Where do you get quilt patterns. Do you just do those like a large quilt with padding in between.
