I was asked to review a pattern from Quilt in a Day by Eleanor Burns.  I chose the Autumn Leaves pattern, found here
 When following the pattern, you make four leaves, so I decided to make two runners.
  I plan to donate this runner to my quilt guild for the boutique at the next show in June. 

I have a small table in my southern home, so I decided to make the second runner a bit shorter.
  There was less space to quilt in the centre of this runner, but it will allow 6 people to sit around my small table.

Here is a close-up of the machine quilting....

I enjoyed making the first two runners so much, I made a third one, using all four leaves and a pieced border!
Later I'll post pictures of the leaves made by my quilting group, along with their comments on the pattern.  We have quilters of all skill levels in the group, and we have all enjoyed making the runner.
