    Christmas Table Runners

    Every year, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the girls get together at my niece's house to eat all the leftover desserts. This year I made several table runners, had the girls pick straws, to see who goes first. Then everyone got to choose a table runner of their choice. It was fun and everyone loved it. I made so many that I gave my sister 3, she is very happy. She called me when she got home and told me she put all 3 out at various places in her home and told me how beautiful they are. I always try to back my table runners with a fabric of another season so they can be used twice.

    Your table runners are amazing. They make such great gifts. This thread has motivated me to make a few christmas runners this week. Love them all. Also, great idea about the back fabric.

    Great idea, it is a hard job, but someone has to eat all those deserts. LOL!

    I also really like your runners. How pretty they are.

    What a great idea about the backing - makes it very versatile.

    What a nice thing you did. They are all such pretty table runners, but I am really partial to the snowball one. I like the idea of sewing a different one on the back so they can be used for another time.

    They are lovely. If I had known you were giving these out I would have come for leftover desserts!

    I was just thinking about table runners when I found this on the quilting board. I like the idea of using a different fabric on back so the runner can be used another season. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

    What a fun get together you have after Thanksgiving. I like each and every runner you made. I received a runner with Christmas fabric on one side and leaves on the other side. I Love that I can just flip it over and enjoy it for another season. So nice of you to gift your runners to your friends.

    Lovely runners and I love the idea of making them reversible so they can be used at other times of the year.
