Onyx in Autumn Table Runner Pattern
Good Morning! My name is Jessica Dayon and I’m so happy to be here today to share a free table runner pattern with you! I have been working on a really fun table runner series to share with you on WeAllSew and today I am sharing the first table runner pattern in this series.
Up until earlier this year, I never made a table runner! Can you believe that? I’ve always focused on big quilts and love making them. However, at the beginning of this past summer, I made 2 table runners and rotated them all summer long. Seeing them on my table daily brought me so much joy! Now that autumn is upon us here, in the Northern Hemisphere, I decided I needed to make an autumnal table runner to enjoy. I came up with the design I’m sharing today- Onyx in Autumn Table Runner.

The main technique used in this runner is stitch and flip corners. If you aren’t familiar with that method, here is what I do.
Stitch and Flip Corner Tutorial
First, gather the pieces you need to make the portion of the block you are working on. I am going to make one of the pumpkins.
Lay the top piece on top of the bottom piece, right sides together.
Then you sew from one corner to the other, in a diagonal line. If desired, you can draw the line with a pencil using a mechanical pencil and ruler before you sew. After that, you can sew on the pencil line.
After you sew, trim 1/4″ away from the seam line.
Flip the corner open. Finger press or press with an iron.
I use the easy corner triangle method to make each of the corners on the pumpkins and top of the stems.
When I sew easy corner triangles, I love to use BERNINA foot #34D.
When the easy corner triangles for the first pumpkin and stem are completed, sew the pumpkin together as shown in the photo in the pattern.
When I need to sew a 1/4″ seam, my favorite BERNINA foot to use is #57D.
Continue following the pattern to make the remaining pumpkins, kitty, leaves, and border.
Quilting the Runner
After the top is together, it’s time to quilt it! I’m using my Q 24 with Q-matic to quilt this runner.
After I loaded the quilt on the frame, I designed on a pantograph to use. I chose Ginger Snap by Apricot Moon Designs.
The Q-matic and Q 24 went to work stitching out the design! I love watching it stitch out!
Completed Autumn in Onyx Table Runner
Here is how it turned out!
I am so happy with how it turned out! The pantograph stitched out beautifully.
Thank you for following along with me today! I hope you love this table runner as much as I do and that you enjoy making it!
