I have finished my Fall Gatherings table runner and have the tutorial ready to share with you.

Fall Gatherings Table Runner Tutorial

The Fall Gatherings table runner is made using one simple quilt block that includes half square triangle blocks and square on point blocks.

There are 3 blocks using 2 different colorways. I think you will enjoy this.

AccuQuilt 12 Inch Qube

I used my AccuQuilt 12 inch Qube dies and my GO! Big Electric cutter to make my quilt blocks. If you have trouble cutting blocks, the electric cutter is the best thing to have.

I used the following dies for my table runner.

  • GO! Half Square Triangle-3″ Finished Square (55703) (Shape 5)
  • GO! Square on Point-4 3/4″ (4 1/4″ Finished) (55725) (Shape 6)
  • GO! Square-3 1/2″ (3″ Finished) (55701) (Shape 2)

Rotary Cut Your Quilt Blocks

If you don’t have an AccuQuilt cutter and dies, I have the instructions to rotary cut your pieces.

  • Place the light fabric 3 7/8″ square on top of the dark fabric 3 7/8″ square.
  • Mark a line diagonally down the center and stitch 1/4″ on both sides.
  • Cut on the center line, press to the dark fabric.
  • Trim your block to the correct size using a ruler.
  • Your half square triangle blocks should measure 3 1/2″ square.

    Another amazing design that uses Batiks with brilliance.
    The fall colours are gorgeous. Other colour combinations would also be stunning.
    Thanks, Connie, for the tutorial and your ongoing support of the patchwork community.

  2. I always thought I was a summer girl – but this is soooo beautiful. Stunning really. And your directions are great (as always). Batik really take this to another level! Thanks!

    Gorgeous runner, Connie! I have some fall batiks in a stash somewhere…this could be the perfect pattern for them!

  4. Another beautiful creation by Connie. I love the colors in this collection and have previously ordered it from MSQC using your link. I’ve place a couple of orders using your link. Thank you, as it’s a great savings in today’s economics and prices for fabric! Good fabric that used to be $5/yd is now $13/yd just within the last few years.
