    Default Table runner suggestions…I need to turn into a production factory!

    We just returned Sunday from another week gallivanting around the country side. This time going to southern Utah to some of the most beautiful outdoor venues to attend plays. When we returned it happened again. Last time it was 11 wedding invitations and extra. This time it is 7 wedding invitations, 3 bridal showers and a baby shower for twin girls. Man, this is going to break me! When my son got married this past spring I was excited at all of the people attending the bridal shower for my now daughter-in-law. I just didn't realize that all of the attendees had children getting married, having babies etc and of course I need to return the favor……

    My stash is crying out to me……I'll save you! So……. I'm thinking about Christmas table runners. They will all need Christmas decorations….may not look too great on those twin babies….but just might give the rest of them something more personal than a gift card or check. And then I'd have more room for more daily deals.

    What do you suggest? What is a quick, classy runner that I could mass produce in Christmas fabric. I don't think these gals would be too keen on the snowman, but I think he is adorable…

    Suggestions please from the smartest people I know.

    I like the one Jenny makes with the half hexi ruler. I've made a few and you can really change them up.

    What about one using the dresden template........with the dresdens stacked instead of in a circle.......similar to the dresden coin quilt tutorial.

    I'm back.........found a picture on one.

    You guys are amazing. I'll start pulling some fabric right now! I'm still too sleep deprived to trust myself with any thing with a blade! This is great! Thank you so much!

    Hey thanks I forgot about that one that looks like trees. This is wonderful. I'm inspired. Now what to do about twin girls. Think I hear costco diapers calling. I can made a diaper cake.
