Autumn Table Runner

I have been wanting to try a 10 minute table runner for some time now so when the quilted Thanksgiving runner I was making kept giving me problems I decided to make one.

I went to Joann's Fabric and bought the exact two cuts of fabric  I needed. I didn't make it in 10 minutes, more like 20, but pretty fast project.

I used this leaf stitch on my sewing machine to sew down each end were the back fabric folds over the front. The instructions say to use a button but I thought this looks better.

I love this back fabric. I had some last year. Can't remember what I used it in but that is normal. LOL

And finally, the latest project. I wanted to join a Quilt Along Jera Brandvig was hosting over at "Quilting In The Rain" but her book Quilt As You Go Made Modern is on back order. So I decided to use some of my Autumn scraps to figure out the blocks on my own by looking at the pictures on her site. So far I am liking it. I hope I have enough scraps to make a table runner.
I haven't started another hand quilting project yet but will as soon as I finish the Christmas stockings my daughter asked for and some bowl cozies my sister ordered as Christmas gifts.
Until next time, keep quilting and creating.



  1. Such a festive table runner, Debbie! Love that method of finishing the edges by folding over the backing. How clever to use a decorative stitch to quilt those edges! Your QAYG project is looking good, too! Fun!

  2. I love all the fabrics you're using. Cute runner, and any project that takes less than an hour is a quick one for me. :) That block is gorgeous.

    I made one for our table last year, but I am going with a different color scheme this year.

  5. I would like to see this years and last.
