When I started decorating for Christmas I realized that I had given away many of my Christmas quilt projects including my popular Christmas Tree Table Runner so I decided to make another one. We have a larger coffee table now so I thought it would be fun to change the pattern for a Christmas Tree Tablerunner resized to fit..
I dug into my stash of Island Batik Christmas batiks and also pulled out a neat neutral basic batik from a past Island Batik quilt. I have a habit of doing this and then I have to “create” with the amount of fabric I have. In this case I only had so much of the neutral.
Christmas Tree Tablerunner Resized
I think I have had the green batik for several years, I remember I thought it was so neat because both sides are different. You don’t see this much with batiks. The green swirls and solid are the same fabric!
Remember you can click on the link above to go to the free tutorial.I made a couple trees…..then a few more. I really had no plan on what I was going to design until I took the blocks up to my coffee table.This seemed like the perfect design! I would have liked to make the center strip that I added a bit bigger but….I was running short on fabric. Next time I will add a strip about 3 inches wide instead of 1 1/2 inch.I cut 4 identical rectangles to add to the side trees and…..my neutral fabric was all gone. I sewed the sections together and then straightened the sides.
I used a neutral Aurifil thread for my freemotion quilting and some Warm & Natural cotton batting. The backing is a piece of premium muslin.It looks perfect on my table! This size is 21″ x 30″. It has been fun decorating for Christmas this year. Our Christmas tree is tall and skinny, I think it was in style about 10 years ago but….I still like it. See the top shadow boxes? Those were windows last year that Builder Bob took out when we replaced the roof and added the deck roof after the wind damage. I think this is the first view of the new curtains I made also.Do you ever forget about quilt projects you have made? I had forgotten all about the Christmas pillows that I made last year. They were in the boxes of Christmas decorations. I made them with my Scattered pattern in a mini size. Note to self…get that mini pattern written! The Wool Caroling Snowmen is a project I did for AccuQuilt last month. I’ll be sharing it on my blog soon.
