fall table runner

Our new place is almost twice as many square feet as our apartment in LA so I am a little intimidated by decorating for the holidays.  The dining room table was looking particularly bare so I thought I'd take a break from the queen sized quilt I have been working on and make a table runner.

I saw this block when I was looking through 500 Quilt Blocks (which is a fabulous book), it's called the Cheyenne block.  I used a variety of oranges, browns, reds, and yellows, including a couple of Juliana Horner prints from Joann's. I REALLY love that collection.

It has been a while since I did any free motion quilting and it was a little rough.  I am a lot rustier than I expected to be!  Just don't look too closely.

Now this can decorate our dining room table for 2 more weeks when it is time to decorate for another holiday.

  15. Lovely table runner Erica - very autumnal but not too themey. The colours are perfect and your FMQ is not too shabby - I think the orange peel motif was a great choice.

  17. Pretty!!! Seriously the nicest fall quilty thing I've seen this year! Side note…how do you keep the grooves in your table so clean? We only have 4 grooves and it feels like a constant battle. :/
