FREE Halloween Candy Corn Runner Pattern using the Go! Cutter.

Halloween Candy Corn Runner

using Accuquilts Go! cutter
{please note: this is NOT a sponsored post, I purchased these dies
and decided to make something (finally).}

Gather your supplies:
A fat quarter of white, yellow and orange fabric
Black background 8.5" X 27"
batting 10" X 29"
backing fabric 10" X 29"
Accuquilt Go! fabric cutter
2.5" strip die (piecing)
2.25" strip die (binding)

Using your Go! fabric cutter and the 2.5" strip cutter,
Cut 1 21"X 2.5" strip of each color as shown.
Sew the strip together in this order:
yellow, orange and white
press seams to one side.

Take your Go! cutter Isosclese triangle die and lay the strip across it.
Cut 8 triangles like those shown above.
Candy corn usually has a white tip and given the way that the cutter cuts the triangles,
there will be 4 left over candy corn 'opposites' for another project.

Layer the backing right side down, batting and black background right side up into a quilt sandwich.
Pin or spray baste all layers for quilting.
Next lay 4 of your corn triangles (I chose 4 with white tips like candy corn) onto the background and pin in place.
My candy measured 1.25” between points (measuring top of corn to bottom)
and 1.75” from the edge of the background.

Quilt the straight "piecing" lines of the candy corn.
Quilt 1/4" around the outside edge of the 'candy corns'.
Quilt in the background.
Notice I basically outlined the candy corn with some straight quilt stitching.
Last, bind your runner.
I used binding that I made with my 2 1/4" Go! cutter strip die.


A quick cute Halloween Candy Corn runner for any table.

What a great idea. I just made a tumbler quilt using a GO die and i think it would also work for the candy corn. thanks.
