Merry Christmas from Alpine Wonderland! Here’s a little table runner I whipped up last night to bring even more Christmas spirit to my home. What’s more festive and fun than Nordic Christmas scenes? Nothing, that’s what.
I realized as I was photographing this little guy this morning that it could easily serve as a wall hanging, too. I can’t decide which way I like best. What do you think?
I made three 15″ wonky log cabin blocks, then added a 2.5″ strip of white around the perimeter of the whole runner. For the back, I just pieced together strips and large blocks from my leftover fabric. Finished, it measures 18.5″ x 47″ and is a great size for my dining table.
I also tried out some swirly quilting from Angela Walters’ book and though my quilting is FAR from perfect, I love the way the swirls lend even more whimsy to the already adorable holiday scenes.
While you’re eating a delicious meal and celebrating with your family, keep the citizens of Newtown and the rest of the less fortunate parts of the world in your hearts and be ever grateful. I know I will.
Here’s to a white Colorado Christmas (fingers crossed!), lots of love and joy, and solace and comfort for those in the midst of a not-so-merry Christmas.
