With time to Spare

 I can't believe it...I am actually thinking ahead this holiday season.  I realized I needed a few little holiday gifts so I raided a friend's stash and decided to make a couple table runners.

For this one, I used my Rejoice Table Runner pattern.  It is quick and easy and uses a single width of fabric strip for each letter.

I found this fun portrait fabric for the backing.  It definitely adds whimsy to the quilt.

While I was their "shopping" my friend's stash, she kept offering me various scraps.  One of the offerings I couldn't resist was a stack of 3.5" squares.

There were super easy to turn into a fun patchwork runner.

There were just enough dark green squares to create the pattern I came up with.  The rest of the squares a certainly a mish mash of fun holiday prints.

A fun red print for the backing and a green woven for the binding.  

I will have two or three more runners to shar in the near future.  Right now, I am sewing on their bindings and hope to finish them soon!

Have you started your holiday sewing yet?

Great prices for some colorful background fabrics!

Both table runners are great. Yep pre cut squares really can be a time saver. People are going to like these two when you gift them.

Oh wow, good for you for working so far ahead. I don't think I currently have holiday sewing plans, but that could still change, haha!
