Christmas Table Runner

 I made this little Christmas table runner yesterday.  It was fast to do because I actually took the bottom row off this quilt in progress to make it.  I knew I wouldn't finish the quilt as it was small and uninspired, but I love these fabrics so much that I wanted to use them as a table runner. 
 The squares are a Sherri Berry Christmas fabric line called 12 Joys of Christmas.  I love the retro images and colours.  The dots and tiles are Denyse Schmidt fabrics from Jo-Anns.
 The squares are 6 inches.  The sashing is maybe 1 3/4 inches?  And the outer border is 2.5 inches. 
 I will try to keep this on our dining room table ... t minus zero until the first spill ...
 I quilted it with a red, green and white variegated thread.
 Here's the binding and backing.
I've started to take out a few Christmas decorations and put them up.  These Santas made an appearance.  And the outdoor lights are going up today.
Thanks for stopping by.  Come back tomorrow for a Giveaway!

Would you believe my sister and I each have a Santa doll exactly like that - they would have to be at least forty-eight years old! They don't look as good as your though; I slept with mine all year, the trick was avoiding that hard lump which is supposed to be his hair at the front of his hat!!

Love the runner! Simple things are the best and we get to enjoy them that much faster :-)
