Fall table runner

I have another table runner to show, which I made with Accuquilt dies!


I made this with the 10” QUBE and companion angles set

and the new Spring medley die (where I just used the basket)

and the fall medley die (where I used the acorn)

I used approx.

½ yard dark brown print fabric

½ yard medium brown fabric

⅛ yard light brown fabric

⅜ yard white fabric

Scraps for the acorns and fabric for binding and backing (¼ yard for binding and ½ yard for backing) and steam a seam lite2

Here’s what I cut out

1 of shape 1 with dark brown print

(4) of shape 2 of light brown

(8) of shape 4 of medium brown

(8) of shape 5 of both the dark brown print and light brown

(2) of shape 6 of white

(4) of shape 8 of white

(8) of shape 16 of white


Then I sewed together the uneven nine patch


And started on the mosaic blocks (2) by sewing #5 dark brown triangles to center #6 white squares and #5 light brown triangles to white trapezoids


Then added #4 brown triangles


and soon the 2 mosaic and 1 uneven nine patch blocks where done


Then I prepped scraps of brown with steam a seam lite2 and cut out 1 basket from the spring medley die


and two sets of acorns from the fall medley die


and I ironed them onto the uneven nine patch (yeah it’s a tiny basket that can only fit one or two acorns! but it looks cute!!)


and I applique stitched around the shapes


then sewed the blocks together


and then added a 1 1/2” border and 2 1/2” outer border


I meandered all over in a light brown thread


The table runner measures 16” x 36”
