Sugarplum Table Runner Blocks by Fresh Lemons Quilts

Today marks Week 3 of the Sugarplum Table Runner. During Week 1, we reviewed the fabric requirements and cutting instructions. Week 2 was our introduction to foundation paper piecing, with the Modern Pine Trees quilt block and Poinsettia Flowers quilt block tutorials. Today we will be making the Snowflakes and Golden Star quilt blocks.

A Friend For My Pillow

A Friend for my Autumn Star Pillow

I decided my couch looked kind of funny with one fall pillow (my Autumn Star Pillow) and one regular pillow. So I made a friend for Autumn Star.

I wanted to use the same general fabrics but not the same design, so I made a couple columns of flying geese. I chose to paper piece them because I’m just so much more exact when I use that technique. I didn’t make a tutorial but I did make a PDF of the templates I whipped up to use. You can download it here.

Fall Pillows

I was able to fit 10 on one sheet of paper but you’ll need to print 2 sheets if you want to make a pillow like mine. You’ll have a few leftover. If you’ve never paper pieced before – these are easy! I have a tutorial on the technique here.

I think they look happy together!
