Autumn leaves table runner

 My favourite season is full of changing colours. The fern was shining yellow just a little while ago.

Now it has turned brown already.

The Alchemilla is still green, still catching drops of water in the folds of her skirt.

The rowan trees missed their best red shades this year and are changing from yellow to brown.

This table runner with the sun print fabrics reminds me of the colourful season when the trees are already naked and the evenings are dark.

I made the quilting yesterday at home and added the binding last night in class. The hand sewing is half done but will be finished tonight in front of the TV.


  1. Wonderful colours. Another project to check off the list.

  2. This is wonderful! I've always wanted to try sun printing but still haven't.

    Thanks for the news about Eileen...I've still got her blog on my sidebar hoping she'd come back!

  3. Lovely work Ulla. The sun printing looked like fun.

    We've some red leaves of virginia creeper at the moment.

  4. love the sun printing and i see that pretty brown gingham has been used again.

  5. OH your leaf print quilt is sop pretty!!! And the applesauce in the previous post looks delicious! My grandpa used to make homemade applesauce!

  6. Wonderful tabelrunner Ulla and it is kind of special since have made the print yourself ...

  7. In Gedanken versuche ich dein im letzten post vorgestelltes Apfelmus....mmmh! Und heute sehe ich den wunderschönen Tablerunner in den so herbstlich passenden Farben. Du hast den Stoff an der Sonne gefärbt, wenn ich es richtig verstanden habe. Wie geht denn das? Ich habe früher ja öfters Stoffe und vorallem Seidentücher gefärbt, aber die "Sonnentechnik" kenne ich nicht. Bei uns ist nun auch Herbst, der Garten wird langsam aufgeräumt und es gibt mehr Zeit für die Nähmaschine. Dieses Wochenende war ich auch wieder mal fleissig....alles für Weihnachten :-) !
    Liebe Grüsse und einen guten Wochenstart!

  8. Such pretty colors and I love the sun prints. Fall is arriving here. I never tire of the rich colors.

  9. The sun prints are beautiful, Ulla. The sights and smells of Fall are wonderful :)
