Ghastly Ghouls and Put your foot down #121

Put your foot down is a weekly linky party to share your fiber arts WIP’s and finishes, and hopefully make new friends along the way. Welcome, I invite you to stop in every Thursday and share your projects.

Welcome to my stop in the the Ghastly Ghouls blog hop. Throughout the year our creative host Carol from Just Let Me Quilt commits her time to organize these hops so we can have fun, be inspired and make new friends. Thank you Carol for all you do.

A few months ago AccuQuilt asked if I would remake one of their quilts in new fabric. I loved this project so much and really needed an excuse to remake it. Carol announced Ghastly Ghouls right around that time.

The runner is quick to make, as in “make in a day” project with 2 quilt blocks…

GO! Bountiful Gift Table Runner

The fabric is from various Island Batik Collections.

Before we move on, this is not my pattern but the runner at the following link was made by me. You can find the pattern here on the AccuQuilt website.

It is a 23 x 57 table runner. Can you see “Welcome, Fall, or Welcome Fall” appliqued in the center.

I see a bowl of dip on each end.

I used Heat n Bond Ultra for the applique shapes and even though it’s a no sew fusible I still ran a straight stitch around them to add depth. 2 layers of scrap Hobbs Batting and Aurifil Thread.

And here it is in its new home. My sisters life long friend loves fall and who better to enjoy it? In fact, she loves fall so much she chose a fall wedding. I hope the midwest colors make for a beautiful wedding.

  1. This is a gorgeous table runner, Denise! The appliqued pumpkin ring in the center really sets it off! I love my AccuQuilt dies and cutter! Thanks for sharing!

  2. wonderful backdrop for chips and dip, wait did you remember the dip. It is a really fall beautiful runner.

  3. What a gorgeous runner, and your quilting is fabulous, but you had with with a bowl of chips on each end! I’m heading over with the dip!????

  4. This is one of the prettiest fall runners I’ve seen…I love the colors you chose for it! I think some dip at each end and a witch in the middle would look perfectly wicked at my house. Thank you for sharing your project with us!

    1. Lol, I was actually thinking a big plate of chicken wings or cupcakes in the center. Thank you so much for this wonderful hop.

    1. I know, you could use it from the beginning of Oct until you dig out those Christmas decorations. Thank you for stopping by.

  5. Good morning, Denise! Oh gosh, this is one beautiful table runner. That background fabric in the luscious ecru color is just perfect to offset those gorgeous greens, browns, and oranges. I’ll bet your sister’s friend is over the moon happy with this gift. It sure looks nice on the table! And yes, I can picture those bowls of dip on each end with a platter of healthy and non-healthy dipping choices in the center. YUM! Nice job. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Lol, thanks Roseanne. A big patter of chicken wings is more what I had in mind for the center. Grab the pattern, its a free pattern.

  6. Great table runner and it’s so wonderful you have someone who will love and cherish it. Thanks for sharing!
