Christmas Trees Table Runners

Before Christmas, Christa hosted a Modern Trees quilt-a-long featuring the Tri-Recs ruler set. I loved how the quilt looked and I bought the rulers at a local quilt shop on a whim with no definite plans on making it. Then, I made this tree skirt top and all of a sudden I had strippy, Christmas scraps! I cut the triangles - I got about 20 out of the tree skirt scraps. It wasn't until last month that I finally found the black fabric in my mom's stash and the brown fabric in my stash... along with the backings and the bindings.

It was time to make some table runners!

My quilting is a bit rumpled and some of my points are cut off, but overall I am happy with my two additions to my Christmas decorations! I look forward to using them next Christmas!!! When my mother-in-law saw my runners, she decided to make one, too! She hopes to make a few more for presents. I look forward to making more as well; maybe making more of those tree skirts will give me good reasons to make more ;)


  1. Oh your Christmas Tree table runner is quite delightful! I will have to make use of my triangle ruler too! I have vowed to make a few more table runners and holiday themed ones at that. Thanks too for stopping by my blog to comment on the baseball t-shirt quilt. :) Looking forward to giving it to my grandson!

  2. Such a cute table runner! I love when I can use the specialty rulers I buy.

  3. So pretty! Have a wonderful week! xo Heather

  4. This turned out so fantastic! I love it with the dark background. Way to finish!
