I am beginning to make a few things with my Christmas fabric stash. The only new Christmas fabric I have purchased this year can be found here. I haven't decided what to make with Aneela's darling holiday fabric, but I will show you as soon as I decide.
The Christmas table runner was made from my stash(Thimbleberries), and I plan to make a few more table runners because they are so easy and fast. I cut a 12 1/2 inch by 4 inch rectangle out of nine fabrics and in the photo you can see that I repeated some of the same fabrics to make mine symmetrical. (Have I mentioned that I have an accounting degree and that I have always kind of liked math : ) The border is cut 1 1/2 inches and I sew using a seam allowance of 1/4 inch. After adding binding the table runner finished at 15 inches x 36 inches. You can easily make yours longer by adding a few more rectangles.
As you will see, I haven't learned my lesson yet, and I used green thread on the backing. I am not pleased with the result, and I hope I remember next time to put a different thread in the bobbin : ) I could also use a darker fabric next time for my backing. I machine quilted with straight line quilting and I think it was the right choice for this table runner.
I will have a few more Christmas projects to show you during the holidays!
