Fall Medley Die #55014.
Additionally to complete this project you will need a wool fat quarter (approx. 18 x 28”) for the background, a half yard of backing fabric (I used a homespun cotton), and Paper-backed Fusible Web.
If you don’t have an Accuquilt Go! You can still make this Autumn Penny Runner, you’ll just have to cut out all your shapes with scissors ~ look for oak leaf stencils, or use an actual leaf to fashion your own template ~ but you can’t beat the Accuquilt Go for speed and accuracy here :)
Because I’m a fusible person, and I’m going for quick with this project, I fused some Heat n Bond Lite to the back of my wool scraps before running them through the cutter. If you’re not a fusible/machine blanket stitch person, you can cut your wool pieces without fusible, and hand blanket stitch around the edges (I like this look too, but I’m going for fast on this particular project).Bigger wool pieces can be folded to lay over a shape on the die to yield two pieces that lean in different directions.
Tip: mark your die shapes with a sharpie pen to aid in laying the fabric over the shape that you want to use. I also like to mark little hash-marks out on the edges of the die so I can align fabric along the top/bottom of a shape easily.

Now with a pair of scissors, trim away the excess backing fabric…
