Mom reminded me of a verse in Ecclesiastes 7:8 today that says, “Better is the end of a thing than its beginning.” That is how I felt when I finished this fall table runner. After all the steps involved in its completion, it felt so good to have it all finished and ready to use. Fall colors are my favorite so it will match my house very well and the appliqued scarecrows make me smile. Mom and I had a great time going though our scraps and picking out the fabrics for their outfits.
The scarecrow designs were purchased from Designs By Juju. The maple leaves were purchased from Tiramisue2 at Etsy. And the Sunflower in the middle was purchased from Diartimagestitch at Etsy. The 9 tan squares were cut 7 1/2 inches. The 12 Burgundy rectangles were cut 4 1/2 by 7 1/2 inches, and the 4 green squares were cut 4 1/2 inches. I pieced it all together using a 1/4 inch seam and stippled for the quilting.
