A Quick Table Runner

A friend mentioned she really wanted a Christmas table runner.  I have a policy that I don't make Christmas gifts in November or December.   It is too rushed and those months just get too crazy.  

I broke my rule.   She sent me the measurements of her table.   The runner was to be 84" in length!   That is not just a table runner, that is a table that ran off!  

I found a fabulous idea and tips from my friend Linda on her blog and drafted up a pattern and set to work.  It is all HST's.

Very nice! My first quilt was a zig zag pattern so I am partial to them. :o) That is one LONG table! Long enough to feed an army. She is lucky to have a wonderful friend like you.

My goodness - I thought my longest runner was amazing at 72 inches - yours is a record breaker, for sure! I love that it's HSTs....what fabrics did you use? They are absolutely cuter-mous! I like inventing new words! :)

I've been sharing your wisdom in quilt stores and with friends since you posted this. What a GREAT idea to make Christmas more relaxing. No gift making in November and December for me either... starting next year. Thanks Jackie! :-)

Haha! If I didn't make them in November and December I would never make a Christmas present! LOL
