Holiday Runner

It's getting close...we're in the home stretch of getting ready for the holidays!  I've had so much going on at home these past few months.  We've been fixing bathrooms and getting floors refinished.  That means the house is in disarray, along with the sewing room.  We are getting back to normal and finally have our tree up today, so things are improving for sure.

I have managed to get a bit of sewing in, so here's a cute runner for my son's dresser.  Last year I made him this cute tree skirt for his mini tree.  This runner used a great fabric that I was able to cut to add to the two ends.  I was just able to get Santa in on one side!

I added some waves of quilting in red thread to make it look like a windy trail.  I also added some cute red rick rack.  The runner uses just two fat quarters, one for the two ends and one for the middle, along with two one and a half inch wide white strips.  It's 18 inches across.

I love the black, red, and white colors on this fabric, along with the fun Christmas motifs.

I can't wait to see what you've all sewn, I'm sure there will be a lot of reveals in the next few weeks! Good luck with your finishes!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and Finished or Not Friday.
