    I wanted to make a whole truckload of table runners for this next christmas. So here is the start of the 18 I will be making.
    Boy I wish they would multiply by themselves. LOL!

    The blue first one is a mistake. I made up this pattern and wasn't sure of the piecing yet. Oh well I guess it is ok. Both are made with two moda charm packs of 12 days of christmas.

    Well, What do you all think? Good enough for a gift?

    Nice! You're ambitious getting Christmas projects done so early. If I did that, I'd misplace them before I could give them!

    wish my mistakes looked like yours - they're great.

    Now if you could get them wrapped as you finished, you'd really be ahead LOL

    Good job. Good for you for getting an early start on Christmas. There is a shop here that is offering "christmas club" classes. They are a time where you can go and do Christmas projects for this coming Christmas. Like one a month. I think it is a good idea.

    It doesn't look like Christmas to me, more like spring or summer. BUT, the colors may not be showing up correctly. On my screen, the red appears to be pinky red.

    It is a michael miller fairy frost that is casting that way. It was the only fabric that I had that was close to the red that was in the moda fabric. Oh well I guess I will have to keep this one for myself.

    Thanks everyone else that had a nice word for me. I am never this early, but I got some good end of the season deals and figured there was no time like the present up make them.
