A Christmas Table Runner

I started this project with the intent to give it to someone.  But as it evolved I just couldn't bear to part with it.  It includes all my favourite elements - scraps, red & green and small pieces.  So after I decided it would be mine it sat unfinished for several weeks as I made other things.  I am glad to have finished it with time to enjoy it!

Most of the fabrics aren't even 'Christmas' fabrics, just red and green scraps.  I wish I could have done the binding in a solid red, but I didn't have any left.  So I used what I had and it works.

It is now happily residing on my kitchen table!

For those who like to know these things.... the squares are cut at 2" and the logs are cut at 1.5" wide.  I didn't actually cut them down to the correct size - I just sewed them on and then cut them off where I needed to.  (Does that even make sense?)  Anywho, I have to run!  Have a good day!


  1. So pretty! I can see why you don't want to part with it! Now you can enjoy it for many years to come.

  2. It looks so cheerful :)
    I'm working on finishing off my first table runner - hopefully I get it done before christmas!

  3. Love it! So bright and looks fantastic with the poinsettia on it :)
