Autumn Table Runner


This is what I am working on today - and yesterday - and probably tomorrow. A table runner for autumn. The background is pieced of 3 1/2 inch squares of beige prints.

Now I need to add the veins to the leaves and outline the acorns so they stand out more - then layer and quilt, and bind. I think the binding will set it off beautifully. I will be doing a scappy binding of all the leaf fabrics.

Shouldn't be long until it is finished and ready to use. Then on to a christmas table runner.

Cute table runner. I know you don't like fall colors, but you did a good job in selecting colors. Great job!

I like all the different leaf shapes. Are these leaves from your yard?

This is very nice. I love fall decorating. I actually have put out all my fall decorations, which will last me through November with the addition of a few pilgrims and turkeys (figurines, ha!). I used to be so good at decorating for all the seasons - especially when Kristen was younger - but I have really cut back in the last few years, so I am proud of myself for having accomplished this. (I know it was because I was going through all those Rubbermaid tubs looking for rummage sale items.)I am selling almost all my Halloween items - either at rummage or on eBay for vintage items.
