    I think the different white strips are really elegant in this runner! Nicely done!

    There is a pattern, kind of, in a book, but the book's at home and I'm at work. I can post the name later tonight, but I think it could be made easily without a pattern.

    I found a block that looked like a poinsettia, but you can use any 10 or 12 inch block that you can set on point. The 12 inch block makes a pretty wide runner, so unless your table is quite large, I'd go with the 10 inch. The cream-colored strips are 1.5", 2" and 2.5" wide and can be cut from the width of various fabrics. Mine were left-overs from a tree skirt I had made. You piece them on alternating sides of the block like a log cabin until you get the length you want on the outside edge. Then you trim them the same diagonal width as the block and across them for the center seam of the runner. The border was 3.5" wide, as I remember.

    I'll try to remember to post the name of the book and the name of the block I used tonight. I bought it about 5 or 6 years ago, but maybe it's still available. Thank you all again for your kind comments.

    Welcome Loisf and Fabric Heaven from Northern California. The runner is just lovely. I also am doing table runners for Christmas and I believe that I have my new pattern, (hope you don't mind). Thanks for sharing.

    Fabric Heaven look forward to seeing your quilt when it's finished. BrendaK

    That is so pretty especially with the different off white strips and the fussy cut cardinal block in the center of the star.

    REALLY like your choice of color/fabric for the middle of your table runner.
    Very nice. Bet it makes you smile each time you look at it!

    That is such an elegant table runner and looks so nice on your table. Don't you just love it when those left overs turn out to be such beautiful accent accessories.

    Your use of the various whites created a sparkling dimension to the beautiful table runner. Way to go! Thanks for sharing your talent... :-)

    Oh, how lovely! I really like those stars. The French braid is so subtle.
