Are you ready for a good looking table runner, super quick? I made this the other night in a couple of hours. I used scraps from Z's newest quilt. It's a great quilt and you can see what fabrics I started with. Just click on the links to see both my final and first posts of this year's Christmas quilt, I bet you have plenty of scraps also.
All you need are 4 squares, size of your choosing. 3 strips of 2 to 3" wide (I chose 2") and 6 more strips of the of 2 to 3", I did 2.5". Finish it up with fabric for the back, some batting plus a spool of thread and you are good to go. Ready? Let's make this DIY Quick and Easy Christmas Table runner.
It's basically four squares of four different fabrics. Then they are surrounded by two different sets of strips.
Yes, sew easy.
- Cut four squares, I did mine 8.5 inches.
- Sew the first strips on the bottom of each square and on the top of one as well.
- Stitch the squares together at the ends.
- Sew the remaining strips from the first set along the sides.
- Repeat with the second set of strips.
- Cut or create the back. As you can see, I had to piece my back.
- Make the quilt sandwich. Pin or baste.
- Quilt as much or as little as you like. I put mine on my longarm and quilted stars.
- You're done.
Was that a bit fast for you? I have more of a spelled out tutorial here.
Enjoy your fun project for yourself or give it as a gift.

I made a fall runner a couple of weeks ago that was also fun and fast. You could do it in Christmas colors.
