Quilted Table Runners for Fall

 Hello there and happy Thursday!

Anticipating Autumn

The gorgeous colors of fall is just around the corner, feeling that anticipation my sewing machine has been humming along!

Table runners are my favorite quilt project to make to give as a gift or sell in my shop. Quilted runners can provide an easy way to dress up a table for special occasion by adding a decorative touch or just for everyday use.

With the change of seasons approaching I have three fall themed table runner finishes to share.

QAYG Jelly Roll Fall Table Runner

Quilt As You Go - (QAYG) method combines both the piecing and the quilting steps into one.

QAYG Runner #1

I loosely followed this Fat Quarter Shop video tutorial because I wanted to add a machine embroidered applique design to the runner.

I pieced the jelly rolls strips onto the batting - no backing. Once the strips had been sewn on I added the trio pumpkin embroidery design to each end of the runner, then added backing fabric with additional echo quilting along the seams. Lastly, I added binding.

This runner measures 13 x 38 inches and the fabric is from the Flower Pot collection by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics.

QAYG Runner # 2

Still using Jelly Roll strips I used an alternative layout to accommodate another fall embroidery design.

Using the same Flower Pot fabric collection Jelly Roll I created this 14 x 31 inch table runner with the "I Love Fall most of all" embroidery design in the center panel.

This fall table runner measures 17 x 31 inches and features the beautiful fabrics from the Cozy Up collection by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics.

Last Christmas I was gifted several of the Fat Quarter Shop's foundation paper piecing sets and  used the 2x4 flying geese papers for this super scrappy runner.

I was super impressed with the foundation papers! The flying geese are perfect, the instructions included on the pad were very clear and the fabric waste was very minimal.

The saw tooth star corner blocks have small flying geese elements so I used my Creative Grids Ultimate Flying Geese Ruler to create them. I especially like using this ruler because you can make 4 at a time flying geese over-sized and then use the tool to trim to perfection. The "Hello Pumpkin" embroidery design in the center panel can be found here.

I'll have more to share with you soon...

Until next time craft the life you love❣
