Fall Pumpkin Table Runner

Here’s a quick and easy and very pretty Fall table runner. I finished piecing it in less than two hours last night. It took longer to write the instructions than it did to make the table runner. The pumpkins are from the Accuquilt pumpkin die using the embroidery that Judy Danz created, and the pieced blocks use the 2 1/2 inch strip cutter. This is bright and pretty and really cheers up my breakfast room.

The fabric is a batik with the background as a Kona cotton (Ivory color).

I’m not sure how I will quilt this one, but likely will do something very simple. I will outline the pumpkins with stitches and then do cross hatching or a small to medium background fill.

Tomorrow, I’ll show you how to make this same table runner using pieced blocks or the Fall Medley applique.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
