    Christmas table runner

    My small quilting group exchanged names for a Christmas gift in December. Since this is my first year with them I wasn't sure what to do. This gifts were to be hand made, although not necessarily quilted.

    I decided to make this table runner for the lady whose name I drew. Since I don't know her color scheme I used Christmas fabric for the stars.

    I had made this for my parents last March, but used a camel and ivory print for the stars and
    solid camel where this one is red and ivory where this one is camel. I call it "Ladder of Stars." It measures 18" X 48".
    I'm planning to make one for myself after the holidays.

    This is a fabulous table runner. I really like how you put the focus fabric in the stars and the sashing around the blocks. Thanks for sharing.
