I can’t believe we are halfway through 2017! It’s been really fun to have my table runner projects featured in each issue of Quilts & More magazine this year. TODAY the autumn issue will be released- so check your newsstands or local quilt shop, or if you have a subscription run right out to the mailbox to see if it’s arrived! You can also get a digital copy here.
I chose a palette of “modern” fall colors- soft, almost-but-not-quite-pastel teals, coral, yellow, and purple. It’ still says “autumn,” but it’s a little more unexpected than the standard fall palette of brown, gold, and orange. The dark brown leaf shapes stand out on the pieced background- because this pieced background seems a little bit “busy,” going with a bold silhouette shape was necessary to make sure it didn’t get “lost”:
My quilter, Danny, used metallic thread for the veins in the leaves, it adds a really pretty, shimmery touch, don’t you think?
The “theme” for all of the table runners in this series is the scalloped borders, and machine applique on a pieced background. In spring, we had whimsical flowers on hourglass blocks:
Then in summer, we had sunflowers on split rail blocks:
I wonder what the Holiday issue will have in store for us?????
Don’t forget to get your copy before they sell out!
I love being able to change out things like pillows and table runners with the changing seasons. These are just beautiful. I love your color choices for the Fall leaf one. I think I may use it for my color palette in the next rug I’m hooking called “Fall Leaves”. Thank you for the inspiration. You’re a genius!
The runners are pretty.
I cannot remember if I signed up for I Love Home bom, should I sign up to be sure?
Hi. I particularly like the last one with the sunflowers. Can’t wait to see what you have coming up for Christmas!
I just started the fall table runner and am having so much fun putting it together.
I recently subscribed to Quilts & More emag and love your last two table runners. I was looking for the pattern pieces for the embroidered pieces and the instructions say “Pattern Sheet 2” but I cannot find it in the emag edition. Is it missing and do I need to contact the publisher? Thanks for your help and for sharing your talent!! <3
Hi Leslie! I have no idea where to find the patterns in the digital version, I have the print version only. Please contact the publisher- and let me know what you find out in case someone else asks :) Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!
I heard back and had also in the meantime figured it out finally. Where it says to find the patterns on Pattern Sheet 2 (or Pattern Sheet 1 for other projects), you actually click on those words – “Pattern Sheet 2” and it will take you to a PDF of the patterns. Now I know for future publications and now you know in case someone like me comes asking in the future. Haha!
