Also Consider Autumn Hues or Match Your Decor!
Leaves twine in a gentle curve across the surface of this lovely table runner, making it perfect for a spring or summer table. Matching napkins complete the fresh look.
Close quilting around the leaves gives them a bit of a trapunto effect. You could also place a bit of extra stuffing under each leaf while sewing it in place to heighten the effect.
Instructions are provided for hand applique using freezer paper. However, the runner will be equally lovely completed with fusible applique. Just be sure to remove the seam allowances when cutting the leaves.
The finished runner and napkins, designed by Rhoda Nelson, are:
- Table Runner: 16×60″
- Napkins: 15″ square
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
