Easy Christmas Table Runner Something New For The Holidays

Easy Christmas Table Runner Just In Time For The Holidays

It needn’t be something in time for the holidays. This easy Christmas table runner can be used with any fabric and great for any time of year. Fun to make. It’s exciting to see the runner unfold as you piece, cut and stitch. Can be made from scraps or simply be spoilt and buy something new and fresh.

Love the white background. The white brings up a vibrancy in the print and wraps it altogether with neat complimentary binding.


This beautiful table runner is much easier to sew than it seems. Some quick strip piecing and you’ll have your table decked out for Christmas in no time. The pattern includes diagrams to correctly piece the table runner. It’s easy.

There is an additional tutorial for this pretty little table runner. The purpose of this tutorial is to give a few little tips that couldn’t be included in the pattern which is great. It’s always helpful to have extra tips.

The table runner measures approx. 51” x 15 1/2”.

You will need:

  • White: 5 strips 2.5” x Width of Fabric (WOF)
  • Red: 2 strips 2.5” x WOF
  • Green: 2 strips 2.5” x WOF
  • Border: 4 strips 2.5” x WOF
  • Backing to fit approx. 55” x 20”
  • Binding: 4 strips 2.5” x WOF

The table runner uses simple strip piecing to create a great effect. If you’re interested in changing things up, here’s a quick rundown of where the strips fall in the table runner.


You’ll be sewing the strips together and then sub-cut your sewn piece into 2 ½’’ strips.




Emphasis to sew seams as straight as possible and there are great tips in the tutorial on an esy way to do that. The more accurate you are here, the easier it will be for your pieces to fit when you sew them back together.




Make the end units and the main body of the table runner is complete.


To make the white borders trim of the points off the edges. At this point I have to share Rachael Godfrey’s tip on Sew Today Clean Tommorow’s, as this could go un-noticed even with other projects.

NOTE: Take your time here and really make sure that you’re cutting at least ¼’’ above the coloured diamonds. If you don’t, you may find your diamonds all lose their pointy little heads when you attach the borders.


Complete border. Bind and quilt. This is such an easy Chrismas table runner. Use Christmas fabric for the holiday season, or fabric for any time of the year.
