Fall Table Runner Tutorial
I made a new fall runner that looks pretty good with my Longaberger basket of flowers. Perfect fall colors. I bought another Accuquilt die, this one is the 3″ finished Half Square Triangle which I am really enjoying. Half square triangles ( HST’s) are not my favorite thing to cut.

I started out with a square of 8.5 inches but trimmed it smaller later.Fall tablerunner pinwheel - conniekresin.comI put a small piece of Warm & Natural batting behind the circle, pinned it and then did some freemotion quilting to attach it to the backing.

Here is a closeup of the stitching……..I really don’t stitch in this direction, I just stopped and turned the piece so you could see the stitching better.

This is the back after I trimmed the batting, notice I used scraps of batting.
