On this very windy snowy day
I thought a bit of fun was in order. This Christmas runner can be made in a very short amount of time – to give away to a friend or to put on your Christmas table.
The red and neutral squares are cut 4-7/8″ , cut in half diagonally for triangle squares that finish at 4″.
Triangle squares are put together flying geese style and then sewn together in a runner.
This runner has 8 rows and all the reds and all the lights are assorted fabrics.
Here’s one that’s all matched up.
The runner will measure 8″ wide by however long you choose.
Lay the finished runner right sides together with backing and sew around the entire thing leaving an opening to turn.
Turn right sides out, close opening by hand and press. Voila! A sweet easy table runner for Christmas giving.
Of course you could layer it with batting and backing and then quilt it and bind it but now you’re running into lots of time. Try this method on one runner and see how you like it. We have made these runners in all colors for different times of the year.
Connie came to the farm early to avoid the limited visibility – at times I can hardly see the barn or the highway even though we probably didn’t get even an inch of snow! Next comes bitter cold!
On a different subject – did anyone watch the finale of Madam Secretary last night? I’ve enjoyed this Sunday night show and am sorry it has ended but I loved how they ended it with past characters making an appearance. Such a happy ending!
Now to my chair to put my leg up because I’ve really been on a roll this morning. It’s hard to quit but my legs do get tired quickly and I will feel more like working after I’ve elevated both legs for awhile! Onward!
