Autumn Leaves Table Runner
Added Nov 3, 2013
My cubicle neighbor at work periodically brings in her quilting magazines, and I fell in love with this Autumn Leaves table runner. This was my first real quilting project, and luckily there was a nice sale at Hancock Fabrics. I used a rotary cutter, ruler, and mat to make sure all the squares were perfect, and it was nice that the mat had the 45 degree angles marked so I could easily make a binding. This was my first time using a walking foot, and I can see why it is practically a necessity for machine quilting. I still want to douse this thing in scotch guard before it adorn my table after all the time this thing took. Oh, I also used fusible web to hold the leaves in place while I appliqued them. Seeing how this project turned out and with the enjoyment it gave me, I think I may pursue quilting a little more.
