We put up our Christmas decorations this afternoon. The kids love putting all the decorations on the tree, and CraftyDaddy and I love watching their faces as they “discover” what is hidden in each box.
One of the items that came out of storage was the table runner that I made last year. I like having a runner on the table, and this one matches the red place mats that I use every day. It also matches the bunting that I made a couple of weeks ago – which is now decorating our big glass doorways.
If you don’t have a table runner for Christmas, they can be quite quick to run up. If you find a fabric you love you can simply cut to size and hem it. If there are a couple of fabrics you love, why not try some simple piecing?

I must tell you, some of the blogs that I found while looking for these table runners were added to my reader. There are so many talented crafters and quilters out there! See more table runner ideas at the Flickr group called Modern Christmas Table Runner Swap 2011.
