There is nothing better than a beautiful Christmas table runner on your coffee table, kitchen table, or on your kitchen island. If you have a Christmas charm pack, fabric scraps, or several mini charm packs, you’ll want to make this fast and easy table runner.
I decided to make a smaller table runner that would fit our coffee table. The size is 14″ x 34″.
I never know where Mr. Mickey will be laying. As I was snapping this photo I saw him below the table and had to include him in this photo.
The great thing about table runners is that many times you can make them as big or small as you like.
It is fun to get my Christmas decorations out, little Santas, ornaments, and these cute little Christmas critters. We have a tall, skinny Christmas tree that doesn’t take up too much room.
My red leather couch actually looks red today! You can even see the Log Cabin mini table runner I am using on the end table. There is one on the other side of the couch also. That is another fast and easy quilt project and tutorial.
Here is a little better view of the Christmas table runner.
The Christmas fabrics I used were leftovers from my Tis The Season table runner tutorial which I cut into 2½-inch squares. This was a perfect way to use my leftover scraps.
I also like to use muslin on the back of my table runners and other quilt projects and save the beautiful fabrics for other things like mug rugs and wall hangings. Do you do this?
Would you like to see what this table runner looks like in other fabrics and a larger size? Here is my original Charm Mix table runner. As you can see, I made a few changes to the design.
