Sewing for me for Christmas...............

I gave my last two Christmas table toppers to two grandchildren who are spending their first Christmas in their own houses.  I knew I had a box of 2" squares cut from all of my Christmas fabrics about 20 years ago.  In fact one of the table toppers was made of them.
I'm just doing a random layout of them, no special order.  I don't have as many lights so I couldn't do a red, green, light alternating pattern.





I'm building two halves of the table runner with an almost identical layout.  I have to have an even number of rows in each half to have my seams going in opposite directions when I join them.








I have laid out two more sets of 4 rows to add on today.  I think that will give me a runner 36" long and about 14" wide.

What a great assortment of Christmas fabric! Looks to be a terrific runner. I never use a runner because somehow, the cat thinks it is permission to sit on the table, which otherwise, he does not do.

That will make a beautiful table runner.

What a great selection of fabric~ I too am sewing for me - finishing up a Christmas lap quilt and then making a lap quilt for me!

That will make such a nice addition to the Christmas decorating.

Thank you Wanda for all the goodies you sent. Your online course sounds terrific and something I'd hoped you would offer in the future. Looking forward to details. I too wish you and your family a very happy holiday season and the best in the new year.

Thank you for your holiday wishes Wanda. And my best wishes for an extraordinary healthy New Year. So glad I signed up for your 'Pop up Shop' and with that geting the benefit of additional offerings, I am so looking forward to your color wash tutorial. I enjoyed seeing your steps working on the two table runners for your grand children. So
festive and nice sized table runners. And a million thanks again for your help yesterday. (*._.*)
