It’s time for some Autumn sewing, my friends, with this free Scrappy Leaves Table Runner pattern! Following up on last year’s Scrappy Leaf Quilt Block tutorial, I’ve added instructions to make this beautiful table runner. It’s a great scrap buster to use with your favorite Fall colors.
The size of this table runner is 10.5″ x 40.5″ and it’s easily adaptable to make it larger by adding borders and/or wider sashing. You’ll need to make a total of five scrappy leaf blocks in the following finished sizes: (2) 5″, (2) 7.5″ and (1) 10″. The variation in sizes gives the illusion of leaves floating in the wind.

Table runner details
I love to decorate with table runners! I have several for every season and I vary the sizes of them. At 10.5″ wide, this one is skinnier than most table runners I’ve made. But as I said, you can make it bigger by adding borders and increasing the width of the sashing.
The batting I like to use for all of my table runners is Pellon® TP970 Thermolam® Plus Sew-In. This is a needle-punched fleece which is really stable and it doesn’t shrink at all. It also comes in a fusible version (TP971F). It gives some added protection to my tables when placing hot dishes on top. I also like the way my quilting shows ups on it. It really accentuates the stitches!
I did some dense stipple quilting in the background which makes the leaves pop a bit. For the leaves, I added leaf veins that give it a little more character. I used a variegated thread for the leaves and it had every color of the leaf block in it.
The backing fabric was a perfect color and fit for the theme of this table runner: Season & Spice by AGF Studio. I added a custom label (I can’t remember the vendor) to the back along the binding. I think it adds such a nice touch, especially if giving it as a gift.
I hope you get a chance to make your own Scrappy Leaves Table Runner. I think it adds the perfect touch of Fall to your home décor!
