Boxes-N-Bows Christmas Table Runners

Posted on: August 1st, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

On Wednesday, I mentioned my recent fabric additions, of the Christmas variety.  They are Holiday Cheer by Jan Shade Beachfor Henry Glass Fabrics.

Looking for some guidance as to what to make with them, many of the comments left recommended a table runner.  So I sat down with my graph paper and drew up these fun Boxes-N-Bows blocks.

Each block finishes at 10″ square.  And could also be used to make a wall hanging or square table topper.

The first runner is 14″ x 72″ and the second one is 14″ x 50″.

If you would like to make some Boxes-N-Bows blocks, here are the cutting requirements for each block.

Linking up to Finish it up Friday with Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF! hosted this week with Laura at Quokka Quilts.

Keep On Quilting On!
