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!
