It's not fall yet, but...

I was just in the mood to work with my orange,golds and black because I think they are just striking together. And I wanted to try out this EQ7 tutorial over at Connie's ever since she posted her valentine runner and I immediately thought of making one in fall colors. Thank you Connie for a great tute and idea!!
Here you see it without the applique leaves...

and here the leaves are on. I really like it either way. I can just see this in lots of seasonal themes. It was pretty quick and easy to piece.

A close up of the quilting, straight line ruler work on my longarm on the black strips. Free motion leaves and loops in the oranges. Glide thread on top and So Fine in the bobbin, Hobbs 80/20 batting. 
I just want to say that I have so enjoyed the linky parties and all the wonderful people that visit and comment on my projects-Thank you all so much!!!


  1. Looks super and a great way to use leftover strips!

  2. I love it with the leaves. They just add that little extra something. :) Very pretty!

  3. Looks beautiful in those colors! Great job and love the leaves! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love this. I showed it to a friend who also fell in love with it and she is going to make something very similar now, but hers will involve acorns I think. Thanks for the idea.

  5. The colours go so well together. I'm always looking for peoples colour combinations to give me ideas, so thankyou.

  6. The runner was pretty, but when you added those leaves!!! Wow! Pop! The quilting is gorgeous. Really adds to it! I LOVE it!

  7. Your runner turned out lovely! I also like the contrast with the black and golds--so pretty! You did a great job on this!

    Would love for you to stop by and link this up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!
