I’m Falling for You Blog Hop

This blog hop is organized by Calico Joan of Moose Stash Quilting!

In January, my Island Batik box contained this fantastic maple leaf die from Accuquilt. I made 2 different quilts with it.

And now, I’m using it again to make a table runner for the I’m Falling For You blog hop. What is more FALL than Fall leaves??? As well, the scrap table runner challenge for this month is Orange … so I’m making a 2-fer.

We’ve been away for almost 2 weeks. I took this with me to finish while we were travelling. (Yes, I take my featherweight and sew when I can and when we have power.) Well, I definitely was NOT meant to finish this on our trip! I didn’t take enough of the background fabric AND … once I finished the top, earlier today, I realized that I did not take enough batting or backing … groan … Anyhow, thankfully I was able to find everything I needed and get this table runner done! I stippled the background and did straight lines on the coloured portions of the leaves.

Table runner stats:

  • Fabric: Island Batik – from the Autumn Wings collection, background is Custard
  • Batting: Hobbs fusible
  • Quilting & Piecing: Aurifil thread
  • Size: 19″ x 37″
  • Accuquilt die: Maple Leaf

  2. Hi Gail! This certainly does scream Fall. I really love those little setting stones. They look randomly placed, although we know they’re not. Great job persevering to get this to the completed stage! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I love when maple leaves start turning in the fall and your runner is the perfect sneak peek into what is coming very soon. As always, gorgeous fabrics. How fun to be able to stitch while your out traveling.Thanks for joining us and inspiring along your route!
