Arabesque Arabesque
By: Sally Wright,
California, USA

In a class with Jenny Bowker at Asilomar we played with different methods of designing our own tiles and then combining them in quilts. In mine I took motifs from antique Turkish Iznik tiles and recreated them in batik fabrics for a table runner.

Autumn Glow Autumn Glow
By: Yvonne Bamlett,
Alberta, Canada

This runner starts with a Bears Paw block and is expanded with log cabins strips all arranged for the colors to cordinate. It is made all from scraps of different golds, greens, oranges, burgandies, rusts and black. To me – it really does “glow” and represents all the colorful hues of autumn.

By: CathyC (aka CrafteeCC),

This was my first tablerunner swap and was made using charm squares. On checking with my partner, I found one of her fave fabrics was Blueberry Crumb Cake – and that made my decision very easy ;) I really enjoyed making this – after I got over the initial nerves of my first swap.

By: kc,

Brenda needed a new set of linens to go with her new home, so her neighbor provided the green fern fabric, I had the green blender, and away we went! The block is called Wandering Star, and since we both love to travel, I thought it was just right. I made 4 placemats to go with the table runner.

This is the backside of a runner for a dresser made for a friend who will be displaying rocks on it. The other side is appliqued and has a slightly darker background. The idea is that it will be reversible. It is made in two pieces so there can be some distance between each piece. Not bound yet.

Scrap Flower Garden Table Runner Scrap Flower Garden Table Runner
By: Mary Ann,

While doing some daycare for my nephews I tried English paper piecing for the first time. I liked making the flowers with one odd pieced fabric for a focal point. I liked the paper piecing, but not enough for a whole quilt, so it became a table runner.

    I apologize for the long comment, but felt I needed to explain well to get the full message imparted.
    My favorite part of the Autumn/fall season is the fun fact that I seem to immerse myself even more so than I already do, into arts and crafts that will provide my loved ones warmth and comfort in the cooling of the seasons. I live in the Midwest-which can change on a dime with the weather, temperature, and conditions. What better way to spend dreary days in the house, than in my craft room, dreaming and creating all the beautiful cherry, warm items that will contribute to making the house look invitingly warm. Whether it’s a new quilt, runner, mug rug, sweater, scarf, wraps, socks. It make me appreciate and have gratitude that I was blessed enough to pick up on so many forms of arts/crafts. I’m in my 40’s, and through a series of events, which transpired in a short period of time, I became very ill just a year ago, in and out of the hospital, where I ended up flatlining which lead to a pacemaker, and many other issues as well. That in itself made me realize, live is too short. Enjoy your time here with all the passion we have all that we can, because we never know when it will be over!

    My favorite part of autumn is the cool, crisp weather!!

  • September 15, 2013 at 3:04 pm

    My most favorite part of Fall is sitting on my front porch in the evening sipping hot tea in the cooler temps and not being bothered by bugs.

  • September 15, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    There are so many beautiful tablerunners here–I didn’t know which ones to vote for! I love making tablerunners. This book looks really great!

  • September 15, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    My favorite part of autumn is walking through the dried leaves on a crisp, clear windy day.

  • September 15, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    My favorite part of Autumn is football!

  • September 15, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    The best part of fall, no contest, is Halloween!!!

  • September 15, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    Best part is longer evenings to quilt without feeling I should be out in the garden or doing household tasks !!

  • September 15, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    My favorite part of fall is the weather. I love the coolness in the air.

  • September 15, 2013 at 8:47 pm

  • September 15, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    I love the fall–warm days, cool nights. This voting gets harder every time….lol

  • September 15, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    I don’t live where the trees go through a dramatic color change but I still get the thrill of autumn as the air is cooler and there is just some of excitement for the new season. It is my favorite time of year!
    Thank you for the chance to win a new table runner pattern. I love it!

  • September 16, 2013 at 1:01 am

    My favorite thing in autumn is walking in the woods and when I see leaves on the ground it makes me think of a patchwork quilt.

  • September 16, 2013 at 1:25 am

    My favorite part of fall is the beautiful, comfortable weather…….great for sitting outside and reading.

  • September 16, 2013 at 1:55 am

  • September 16, 2013 at 2:59 am

    !Me encantan todos los trabajos de otoño,es la estación que más me gusta

  • September 16, 2013 at 3:33 am

    Alas, I live in a country where the seasons are not clearly marked but I have always loved the autumn colours and dream of walking through a forest with all those beautiful leaves on the forest floor!

  • September 16, 2013 at 6:19 am

    The cool crisp air in the morning, the way the sunlight comes through the windows in a different way and then the leaves! I love fall.

  • September 16, 2013 at 7:08 am

    My favorite part of autumn is the respite from the summer heat along with the beautiful changing colors of the trees. This time of year is perfectly inspirational for quilting.

  • September 16, 2013 at 8:30 am

    My favourite parts of fall are the cool weather and the colours.
    The table runners were all very beautiful!

  • September 16, 2013 at 8:37 am

    My favorite part of autumn is the cooler/crisper temperatures and the scents of the season.

  • September 16, 2013 at 8:55 am

    I love the surprise of the warm days we sometimes get during the Fall season.

  • September 16, 2013 at 8:59 am

    Cooler temperatures are the best–warm days and cool nights.Also, there is nothing like the crunch of fallen leaves beneath your feet.

  • September 16, 2013 at 9:40 am

    Feeling “wilted” from the hot summer weather, I love the cool, crisp mornings of fall. We live down south so drinking coffee on the porch and seeing the beautiful colors of the leaves changing is wonderful. It really makes you want to quilt too! :o)

  • September 16, 2013 at 9:57 am

    Fall is the time when I get to start wearing my warm cuddly sweaters. Hot chocolate more often is not a bad side bonus either.

  • September 16, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    I love the change of season. The warm sun and cool air. The changing leaves. The children waiting on the side of the road for the school bus. Fall always makes me want to buy new shoes :)

  • September 16, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    My favorite part of the fall season is just the slight chill in the air, leaves floating down, smell of smoke in the breeze, and the lovely colors of pumpkins, mums, and fall leaves everywhere you look! Love fall – my favorite season!

  • September 16, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    My favourite part of autumn – the madness of summer is over, the harvest is almost done and we can take a breath and enjoy the labors of the passing season. The temperature is pleasant and the colors of the fall are so full and beautiful. The pumpkins and apples ready to make pies!! The runners in the show and tell are spectacular – as always.

  • September 16, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    I love the cooler weather! It’s such a relief from the heat of summer! It’s so nice to get out warm turtlenecks and snuggly sweaters to wear again. And the beautiful leaves changing colors!

  • September 16, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    My favourite part of autumn is leaves. How they change the colours of the trees greens into a multitude of golds, bronzes and more; how they fall in gust of wind; how drifts of leaves litter the paths crunching underfoot. So much beauty and fun.

  • September 16, 2013 at 6:42 pm

    I love the fall colours we get in the Valley!

  • September 16, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    My favorite part of Autumn is the beauty of all the color changes here in the Ozarks. But the MOST beautiful time was once when I was driving thru a grove of trees and all of a sudden all the leaves dropped and were floating like a snow storm, only it was beautiful leaves. Never saw anything like that before, and I always remember and hope I get to see it again :)

  • September 16, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    I love the cooler, crisp temperatures. Then we head for warmer temps to avoid the snow. Thx.
