Welcome back. Glad to see you! Today I'm sharing a Quilted Fall Pumpkin Table Runner that was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. Quilting has been a hobby of mine for about 30 years now and a pumpkin table runner has been on my quilting To Do List for a few years.
One Saturday morning in late September my best friend Bonnie and I were having our weekly text chat over coffee when the subject of table runners came up once again. Every year we lament over the fact that we have not gotten our table runners done in time for Fall. But THIS year I had already decided it was a priority project to scratch off my TO DO list. I had a plan in mind and was determined to make it happen. Bonnie listened as I told her the plan, Step One: go to your fabric stash and pull out orange fabrics.
Text a photo when done.
Step Five: Cut and arrange pieces for second pumpkin. Sew and send Photo.
And this is where I lost her. Being determined I pushed on over the next few days, adding hand drawn leaves and stem that were appliqued after the pumpkins were sewn into the background and a few thread squiggles for vines. Machine quilting and adding a orange stripe binding to finish off the project and FINALLY call it DONE!
I'm so excited to finally cross off this long standing project on my To Do List! Now, it's time to tackle a Christmas table runner....uh, maybe next year!
