Fall Sewing Project Tutorial: How to make an Autumn Leaves Quilted Table Runner

Free Autumn Sewing Project Tutorial:
How to Sew an Autumn Leaves Quilted Table Runner
You Will Need:
2.5" scrap strips from autumn colors and prints fabric
packaged quilt binding
quilt batting
fabric for back of runner
basic sewing supplies
Keep your fall and autumn scrap fabrics from your quilting and crafting project. All you need is is 2 1/2" strips to make this scrappy pieced autumn leaves table runner!

Cut your autumn and fall fabrics into 2.5" strips. The strips can be anywhere from 4" long to 12" long. The more scattered and different size in length, the better. That's what makes this look like a "scrappy" quilt!
Sew the short ends together to form strips that are 24" long. You can make your table runner as long as you want, but the one I made is 24" long.
how to sew a scrappy fall leaves table runner Press the seams to one side on your strips.
Continue to make strips of pieced fabrics until you have the desired width of your table runner. You can make your table runner as wide as you would like. I made mine 14" wide.
Sew the strips together to form a quilt top.
Time to appliqué some fall leaves onto the top of our table runner using the fusible method.

First method: If you have large leaves pre-printed on fabric you can just use those leaves. Put them where you like them using the directions found on heatbond or some other type of fusible paper.

Second method: If you do not have a large leaf fabric print, you can draw or find a leaf pattern on the internet and print it out to use as your pattern.
Using the directions found on your fusible paper iron-on, and then cut out three different color leaves for each side of the table runner. Press them onto the top of the table runner according to the directions.
Stitch "veins" into the leaves as shown.
Cut a piece of quilt batting and fabric for the back of the table runner the size of your table runner top. Sandwich the quilt batting in-between the quilt top and the quilt bottom piece. Quilt the three layers of the runner as desired. (I used the stitch-in-the-ditch method.)

Last, sandwich the quilted table runner within the quilt binding. Pin in place.

Either fold the bias tape around the corner edges, or cut the bias tape and then over lap the corner. This is a total preference of the person sewing.
Sew around the quilt binding on the edge as shown.
Your harvest pieced table runner is finished!

Here we are showing it with one of our handmade prim turkey crafts surrounded by wooden candy corn pieces for a Thanksgiving center piece.

And here we are showing the Harvest quilted table runner as our Halloween center piece, shown with our number one Autumn craft, our one-row-of-stitches, "Fabric Country Pumpkins!"
