Falling Leaves Table Runer & Placemats

from jb.quiltdesigns
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Falling Leaves Table Runer & Placemats
Falling Leaves Table Runer & Placemats Runner & Mat
Falling Leaves Table Runer & Placemats Placemats in 3 colours
Falling Leaves Table Runer & Placemats Scrappy Runner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Advanced quilting skills including an accurate scant 1/4" seam and matching angled patches

Pattern Description:

This unique runner, with its leaves floating above the background and border, makes a great fall centerpiece. Rolled back bias edges create curves with no curved piecing.

The fabric yardage yields four identical maple leaves and 2 identical oak leaves. For a scrappier look, use a variety of 9" x 10" scraps for maple leaves and 12" squares for oak leaves. Avoid directional prints for the leaf and background fabrics because the fabrics will be cut and sewn on various angles. Note that maple fabrics should contrast well with both the background and border fabrics. Fabric requirements are based on 40" usable width.

The pattern includes instructions for six placemats with three colour options.

  • 16" x 50" runner
