Autumn Table Runner - Island Batiks Bountiful Table Toppers

The weather is finally cooler and the leaves are turning color.  Autumn is here! I love this time of year that brings out the sweaters and flannel shirts to get nice and cozy in.  It was also time to pull out the fall decorations, so when Island Batiks challenged the Ambassadors this month to make a Bountiful Table Topper.  I looked through my Island Batik box for fall colors and came up a quick and easy tablerunner for my coffee table.

This table runner measures 46" x 21" when finished.  The center is made from the Equinox charm pack bundle Island Batiks Fabrics and 1/2 yard of  Neutral "Yolk" Island Batik Fabric. The borders also used a coordinating Island Batik Fabric that required a 1/2 yard.

After sorting the 5" charm pack bundle into a happy layout that I liked, I trimmed them into 4" squares. The neutral sashing was cut into1 1/2" x 4" rectangles.  I also cut 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares for the joining the sashing pieces.  Then I assembled this runner in an on-point layout to create a beautiful autumn tabletopper. 

After the final corner were placed I trimmed the edges to leave 1/4" seam allowance. Then added the borders. The first was 1 1/2" wide with the neutral fabric, and second outer border was 3 1/2".  

I quilted this table runner with Indian Summer Panto by Patricia Ritter, and leftover Quilters Dream Batting. Then added a nice red Island Batik Fabric for the binding. I completed this tablerunner in just 2 days, It was nice and easy to make. 

I'm ready for fall now with my new fall tablerunner looks great on my coffee table.

Have a Great Quilting Day!
