Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. The dining table is a lovely place to reflect the wonder of the season. Here is an easy autumn project: A Patrick Lose Studios Fall Finery Table Runner pattern. It can be found here.
This is my final project – actually I think that it is prettier than the photo. The bold pattern, texture, and colors are all yummy!
For this table runner three coordinating fall colors are chosen including orange, yellow and red prints, and a background brown print. The leaf prints are batiks which makes for a nice organic look.
I traced the leaf patterns on lightweight fusible interfacing, fused, and cut out the leaves.
The background measures 14 X 44″, cut twice for the background and for the backing fabric.
The leaves are placed onto the background and fused them in place.
The table runner top is then sandwiched onto a lightweight batting remnant and backed with the same fabric as the background. After machine quilting with a random pattern, the edges were bound with the yellow fabric. Some highlighting of the leaf lines was done with an overlay thread, and the edges were adhered with a small zigzag stitch.
Ready for the table!
