One of my big projects lately has been this table runner. My mom brought a quilting book for me to borrow when they came. There were a few really neat fall leaves projects in it that I just loved.
This isn’t one of those projects. 🙂 But I did use the five-point leaf template from the project.
It’s a quilted table runner. The materials are all left over from other projects – it was a wonderful stash-busting project.

I followed the quilt-as-you-go method found at the Moda Bake Shop (thanks to Susan, for posting about their site!!), and then topstitched the seams. The five-point leaf template is from the book Mom brought, and the other leaf template I drew freehand. I appliqued them all by machine using the pin stitch setting.
It was a challenge since I’d never appliqued before. The leaves got easier to do as I went along, which was really nice.
In the end, it was a lot of fun to make. This one is a gift, but I liked it so much that I’d like to make one for myself if there’s time.
