Cutting up the fabric!

I have attempted to begin the knitting stitches from the book..well, let's just say that didn't go over too well. I was able to do the first stitch then I lost my place. LOL! I put it down then decided to start cutting up the fabric. I want to make a really simple runner for my table.. I wanted the colors of  red, white and blue to sit on my table in the dining room. I am not going to fuss with binding. I am going to sew a back on and turn. Easy peasy!
But, it looks like I may have already packed the batting that I knew I had in the house. I am so hoping I won't have to go back to the craft store. Anyways...this is what I have done so far...squares sewn together that I will sew into bigger squares...then into one long strip. Then, either hand quilt or stitch in the ditch perhaps..that will go quicker.

sewing definitely put me in good spirits, as I love being creative. :)
