Autumn Table Runner

At last I have a finish, I've made a lovely little autumn-themed table runner. This design was on the Moda Bake Shop blog, and I fell in love with it. It uses fabric from the Gobble Gobble range by Moda. I've been practising my free motion quilting using Golden Threads quilting paper - if you click on the first picture to enlarge it, you can see the pumpkin quilting design more clearly. There are two rows of a continuous line design in the middle section, then I picked out the pumpkin motif and one leaf to march around the border. I did the border quilting after I'd cut and bound the scallops, but next time I'll probably do it after I've cut the scallops, but before I've bound them. I also got the bias slightly tight in a couple of places, hence the curly corner :o). Live & learn, I'll be more careful when I finish the square one off. This runner has Warm & Natural in it, it does make for a very flat and fairly thin finish, I don't think I'd like it for a larger quilt.


  1. You clever girl, that is so pretty. Love the quilting, you've done really well with it.

    Is there going to be a Christmas version (runs away fast, ducking)

  2. That's lovely, and the quilting is brilliant.I'm glad Bilbo asked about a Christmas version, so I don't have to worry about you throwing things at me too, you'll have thrown everything throwable at her!

  3. Tee hee, I should have replied to Bilbo's comment here, then you wouldn't have been so nervous about commenting. The Christmas one was made several years ago, it's just the small matter of popping into the loft and finding it ...
