We have been having so much fun with these creative swaps this year and I am enjoying getting to know all the farmgirls who take part. It would be great if more of you would join in. We'd love to get to know you, too.

For this swap you will make one table runner to swap with one partner. Show us your creativity. I know we have some very creative farmgirls here.

One easy way to make a table runner is to make several quilt blocks (from a favorite quilt pattern or of your own design) using Christmas fabrics, put them together in a row or in a square, add batting and backing, and bind them like a little quilt. And take a look on Pinterest - https://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=Christmas%20table%20runners&term_meta%5B%5D=Christmas%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=table%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=runners%7Ctyped - and you will find numerous Christmas table runners. Some requiring very little or no sewing.

Here are some pictures of table runners (or table toppers) I have made. I use table runners every year as part of my holiday decorations.

These two runners were made using leftover blocks I had from a bed runner I made. I won the blocks in a block swap with my quilt guild. The smaller runner was the only 3 blocks I had that used a blue snowflake design fabric as the background, so I made them into their own little runner or candle mat.


This one was made using 9 "Bow Tie" blocks I made using Christmas fabrics for the ties and unbleached muslin for the background.


This is one I made from 4 leftover "Lovers Knot" blocks from a quilt I made my niece one Christmas.


My cousin made this one for me from a purchased pattern.


When you sign up, please send me your name/address/phone, and I will keep the info in case you have trouble contacting your partners. I will only use the phone number if you are AWOL.

Signups start: September 28
Signups end: November 15 (Please send me your information ASAP - no later than this date)
Partners Posted and email sent: November 16
Mail out by: November 25

Because we have nine swappers, you will not be receiving a table runner from the same person you send to:

Linda (quiltee) sends to Shannon (Hudsoninaf)
Denise (Denise Ann) sends to Marilyn (TexasGran)
Shannon (Hudsoninaf) sends to Denise (Denise Ann)

Abi (The KnittingFarmgirl) Sends to Christine (NY Pumpkin Girl)
Christine (NY Pumpkin Girl) sends to Karen (kkprice)
Christy (Quiltwright) sends to Abi (The KnittingFarmgirl)
Karen (kkprice) sends to Christy (Quiltwright)

Start making your table runner now, so you don't have to rush to complete it by the mail-out date.

Linda,
Do you have a pic of a Christmas runner you could post for us to see? Would be great, if you do!
Thanks much!

CeeJay -

Thanks for the idea about pictures. I've updated the initial post and have added pictures of table runners I have made. As I finish more, I will post additional pictures. There are 3 table runners I cannot immediately locate. One was made from a kit, though I have more of the similar fabric and have made a few more like it that aren't finished. The other 2 were made in Amish country and are basically one large quilt block.

I hope you like the pictures.

8 of us so far to swap table runners. I hope a few more farmgirls sign up for this. Can't wait to see all the runners. Remember, start working on them now so you aren't rushed when partners are announced.

I'm glad to see some new farmgirls participating. Please make sure you "Subscribe" to this topic so you don't miss out on any of the information - especially when I post partners. :-)

Only 2 weeks until partners are announced. If those of you who have signed up know some farmgirls here that are not signed up, let them know how much fun this is. Maybe we can get some more to sign up.

My quilted table runner is completed. I had so much fun thinking of what to do and constructing it. Just waiting for that special farm sister.
