F.O.: Charm Pack Christmas Table Runner

Sometimes I just want to piece squares together. Nothing fancy, I just chain piece them together until I'm done. I have a stack of charm packs that serve this purpose well. 

Since I start getting in the Christmas spirit the day after Halloween by playing my Johnny Mathis and Vince Guaraldi playlist, I pulled the Joy by Kate Spain charm pack from the pile:


and whipped up this table runner after sewing 9 patches of the charms and then cutting them in the "Disappearing 9 Patch" style.



Quilting was just a medium-size stipple, backing and binding are old (8-10+ years!) Christmas stash fabric I was happy to use up.



I'd like to say my holiday decorating is done, but I think the kids will expect a tree at some point.

How are you getting into the Spirit of the Season....or are you holding off for as long as possible?

  1. I am feeling the need to make a mantle scarf for over our fireplace, but everything else is the expected decorations that I will make the kids help haul up from the basement *after* Thanksgiving.

  4. Cute table runner. No decorations yet, unless you call the two flameless candles I bought over the weekend for the mantle.
