Christmas Scrap Quilt in Progress

 Last year I made a HUGE table runner using lots of Christmas scraps cut into 2.5 inch strips.  I didn't get it quilted and put it away in a drawer.  Quite honestly, table runners look nice on tables in pictures in decorating magazines.  Tables that aren't used for eating, homework, crafting ... tables that aren't ours ...
 So last night I cut the table runner up.  Then I added a few more pieces too.
I arranged them as coin strips and cut some super cheery red-and-white herringbone to add.
I love how lively and fun it looks.

I should be able to finish it today!
Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!

good idea. I actually use table runners now, but when my children were small I only used wipe-off placemats.

You are so right. Good idea! I manage a runner on my coffee table but not the table.
