AccuQuilt Pinwheel Table Runner
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.
The die makes it fast and easy to cut them.
I decided to make a couple pinwheels.
Then I cut the pinwheel into a 5 inch circle and placed it on a square of the same creme fabric. I forgot to take a picture of the circle. I started out with a square of 8.5 inches but trimmed it smaller later.I 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.
Now I’m turned around and showing you the way it is getting stitched.
This is the back after I trimmed the batting, notice I used scraps of batting.
At this point I still wasn’t sure what I was going to make. I had a couple 2.5″ strips of brown so I cut them in half and sewed a 1.25″ strip between 3 blocks and then around them. Then I added a 3.5″ border of my print.

I used a 100 percent natural color thread to quilt the blocks and then a charcoal Bottom Line for the floral border. My binding was cut 2.5 inches.
The circles have a double layer of batting and puff up just a little.
The finished size is 15 x 30.
