My Christmas project is Holiday Forest, a table runner with matching placemats.
Made with a variety of green batiks for trees and a pretty blue snowflake print for the background, this runner and place mat set celebrate the Christmas season in a modern, understated manner.
Constructed with easy to paper piece trees, strip cut units for background pieces, and a few applique snowballs, this project was a snap to put together.
The runner measures approximately 15 1/2" x 44", and the place mats 11" x 15 1/2".
Background quilting is an easy landscape type fill, with the trees getting a simple shape repeat. Both add just the right amount of quilting, so as not to dominate the design.
Interested in making your own Holiday Forest runner? You can do just that, as I have a pattern available at both my Craftsy and Etsy stores. Just click the pink links to go to the stores.
