Maple Leaf Table runner

Fall is here!

Cooler temperatures, walks in the woods and falling leaves are reasons to make a new table runner.  The free block pattern is from Fat Quarter Shop Jolly Jabber and shared again today as part of their Classic and Vintage series.  (Opps - looks like their post got delayed - I'll update my post once the pattern for the block is live!)

I used 3 blocks on my running and offset them to make it look like they were tumbling across my runner.  I quilted the runner with organic wavy lines.

But why stop with just 3 blocks when these are so much fun to make?  So I turned the 4th into a trivit / hot mat but adding a layer of Insulite with a layer of batting.

Check out today's Jolly Jabber post for more examples of this great block!

I'll be linking up at Brag about Your Beauties Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I really like the way you rotated the blocks across the runner. Very nice!

  2. I like how you offset the blocks. Great runner.

  3. What a pretty runner - the colors! I look forward to seeing the pattern on Jolly Jabber.

  4. Ready for Fall & really nice quilting to enhance this pretty runner.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
