Make Your Own Pumpkin Fall Table Runner

Fall Pumpkin Table Runner

My Pumpkin Fall Table Runner is perfect to make your home cozy this fall and would be awesome on the table for Thanksgiving, it would also be a lovely gift for your Thanksgiving host.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to make my Fall Table Runner, as well as how to easily adapt my free pattern into matching placemats and potholders. 

Fall Pumpkin Table Runner

This pattern uses a technique called “Half Square Triangles” and we will make them four at a time. 

For those that don’t like binding, we will be doing the self-binding technique which is so much easier and saves a lot of time. If you haven’t heard of the self-binding technique before, stick with me, you’re going to love it!

TO MAKE A PUMPKIN FALL TABLE RUNNER YOU WILL NEED

My Pumpkin Fall Table Runner measures approximately 38½” x 10½”.

This project is the perfect scrap buster, it is made up of 2½” squares and the more fabrics used the merrier! Use dark tones of fabric for the pumpkins and light tones of fabric for the background. You will also need 4 x 4″ squares in dark tones and the same in light tones. My Fall Pumpkin Table Runner topper was made entirely with scraps of fabric I had on hand. But if you want to buy fabrics I list below what would also work.

4 x 4″ squares in light tones

5 x 2½” width of fabric dark tones for pumpkins

5 x 2½” width of fabric light tones for background

14″ x 42″ Batting

14″ width of fabric for backing and binding

Sew your pumpkins together individually as shown in pic below, then sew the three together
