- ¼ yd. each of four coordinating fabrics
- Coordinating Thread(s)
- Nature-Fil Fusi-boo™ Batting

For the pictured centerpiece we used changeable taffeta fabrics and metallic threads. You can change the shape of your centerpiece or number of leaves you use as you desire.
- Fold one piece of fabric in half with right sides facing in.
- Cut one piece of Nature-Fil Fusi-boo™ batting approximately the same size as the folded fabric.
- Place piece of batting on table and place folded fabric on top of batting.
- Using the template cut out 14 leaf shapes from all layers and pin them together.
- Sew all leaf shapes using a ¼ inch seam allowance leaving a 1½ inch opening.
- Turn leaves right side out with batting inside. Tuck opening edge in ¼ inch and pin.
- Top stitch around outside of leaf about 1/8 of an inch from edge.
- Iron following Nature-Fil Fusi-boo™ package directions.
- Sew leaf vein pattern on leaves with decorating threads.
- Repeat steps 1 thru 9 with other three fabrics.
- Starting with a circle of leaves on the table and working outward, add all leaves in random order by tucking under the first circle of leaves.
- When you are happy with your design, pin leaves on edges where they overlap.
- Hand or machine tack leaves together where you pinned.

Wow, this is absolutely gorgeous and so detailed! If your table is longer you could extend the leave, and leave them just a single layer so it gracefully flows and also, if need be, a plate could be placed on it without tipping. This also would make a nice wall hanging, or even on top of a sofa table or side buffet! You could also modify the pattern by using fabric remnant scraps from your stash for a more eclectic look! Super project!

I think you could make matching placements, too. they would be an irregular shape from the leaves, but you just wouldn't make it as long on each side like the table runner. there are so many beautiful fabrics and materials you could use to make these!

Love this table runner and would love to make it. However, when I try to open the pattern, all I get is thousands of letters and symbols. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks
