Dig out your Christmas in July stuff, as it is only five months until the old guy comes down the chimneys! We can get started on gifts and decorations, and maybe have something new for the season. Today is my day on Sarah’s Christmas in July blog hop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I got a bit backed up on time, so I am going to show you this runner I did in a quilt along when my blog was fairly new. For this event, I gathered all the instructions into a free downloadable pattern pdf so you don’t have to work your way through all the QAL posts to get it.
Here are the fabrics I used in my runner. The drama of the black background fabric really adds depth to the design.
Start by making a bunch of HSTs, using three different combinations of squares.
You’ll use those to combine with small red squares to make these two units.
Then those units assemble into these blocks.
You can make four or nine blocks for table toppers, or put several in a row for a runner. The block finishes at 12-inches square, so your final size will depend on how many you use and how you arrange them. All the info you need is in the download, and will show you how I do my patterns.

A table runner makes a great bed scarf for a festive look to your bedroom or guest room, too. Are you starting your holiday sewing?

Great ideas. Thanks for the pattern and the recipe.
Your runner may be an “oldie”, but it’s certainly NOT a “moldy oldie!” LOL
Thanks for condensing the pattern for the Blog Hop, Carole. It made such a lovely Holiday decoration!
Love the table runner!
Carole, thanks for sharing another great idea. The black does add depth.
Beautiful work! Love the idea of using the runner on the bed. Carla from Utah
Love the idea to make a bed runner! Beautiful pattern too!!
Just lovely, and the nicest kind of drama! Thanks!
great design, thanks for sharing directions.
Merry Christmas 🎄⛄🎄
Very cute runner!
Hi Carole! What a fun post today. I love the runner and it sure looks nice on the foot of the bed, too. I don’t often remember that a table runner may be used that way as well. Thank you for sharing the .pdf of your pattern. I cannot believe it is almost time for Autumn Jubilee. ~smile~ Roseanne
The black background really does set off those blocks. Sweet Christmas runner.
I remember when you did this table runner as a quilt along.:-) Thanks for putting into a single document.
the runner looks great and the Biscotti are calling my name
Thank You for sharing such a wonderful Christmas runner. Really love it!
Lovely table runner! Thanks for tutorial and the recipe. I may make the biscotti before Christmas!
I love the table runner — it is on my list of must makes!! Thanks for sharing the tutorial and the yummy recipe!
That’s a great runner, Carole – both on the table and on the bed! Thanks for the link to your pattern.
Great table runner! Thanks for the instructions and recipe!
How timely, you’ve just given me the pattern for the last star block I’m making for Covered in Love. Mine will be in red, white and blue, which should work perfectly. Thanks.
Very pretty Christmas table runner!
What a lovely pattern and a cookie recipe too! Marry Christmas in July. Thanks.
Lovely table runner inspiration! I might have to try that biscotti recipe. They sound yummy!
Can’t have too many table runners or bed scarves! Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
I love the pattern and the flexibility to make it in different sizes. That biscotti recipe looks so yummy!
Very pretty! It looks gorgeous on the bed!
Hope to do some runners for Christmas this year. Picking up my daughter’s quilt for the new grandson today from the long armer, and have to finish mine, while I’m working on two other simple crib quilts for work babies too! we’ll see about christmas then hee hee!
I do love your table runner, and I think I have enough in my stash to do it… If I could spend a day just cutting up several projects, the planning part and the sewing parts aren’t as hard as the starting-on-the-cutting part!
Ooh, that’s really pretty, Carole! I may play with more modern colors and prints to see how it looks, too – I can see it both ways in my mind’s eye! Thanks for pulling a PDF together, and for all your hard work!
Love the Runner..very pretty! & thank you for sharing the recipe too…will definitely try too 🙂
I just love this!! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Carole! Love the table runner!
Your table runner looks wonderful – and fun to make too! Have to say that the recipe for those biscotti might be part of my Christmas baking this year.
😆 I’m finishing my holiday sewing…..from last year! As soon as I get something off the sewing table, I am going to finish the Christmas bed scarf I made from your Autumn Jubilee? from last year…or was it the year before?!
Love your table runner pattern. Thanks for sharing. It looks wonderful on the bed to. Thanks also for the cookie recipe.
Thank you for all you do for us, Carole. This year I just might get that beautiful tablerunner made AND the biscotti, too! 🙂
Such a cute table runner! That would be easy to make for Christmas. Love the Christmas page too–so many ideas!
Gorgeous table runner!! I think I need to make one! xx
Thanks so much, Carole. I do like the block design and that looks like an easy way to do it. The .pdf will be helpful.
