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.

  1. Thank you, Karen. I would LOVE to show you. But you know, even IF we lived closer to each other, I’m guessing it’d still be hard to find a time!

  2. Beautiful Melody! I wish you were nearby to show me how to do it. I’m one of those people that do better with being shown vs reading instructions! lol
