This Christmas table runner is a good project for those trying to learn quilting and it is also my way of getting to know my new sewing machine.
This Christmas table runner is a simple design I got from last summer’s trip to Eastern Europe in the lovely country of Lithuania. I saw the table runner in a shop dedicated to Santa Claus and all things Christmas. The owner of the shop was sewing a table center with a very old mechanical machine. I asked her how she made it and she was very happy to explain. She said it was an old pattern that her grandmother had taught her and so it was a common thing to sew if you are just starting at quilting.
The table runner has three flowers. I have used two different colors of fabric, golden white on one side and red on the other. This is a beautiful accent to your Christmas table. You could choose almost any type of fabric for the poinsettias in the centre. You could try a sparkling fabric or sequin if you have a little more sewing experience.
The measurement of this Christmas table runner is 41″ X 15″.
