Reversible Table Runner: Hanukkah and Thanksgiving

 First, thank you so much for all of the comments/love on my last post. I feel so fortunate to have you as readers and friends. I'm slowly wading through emails - as usual, I'll respond to comments. I'm simultaneously trying to finish several presents for Christmas, so all things internet are slow-going at the moment!


Continuing my experiments from last year, I made another reversible table runner - this year, for my Aunt Amy, who requested one side Hanukkah and one side Thanksgiving. That way, she can use it from October to January (let's face it: holiday decor usually stays up past December). I was only too happy to oblige. My mantra for piecing with scraps: simple is best.


My aunt loved it and put it out right away! On the Hanukkah side, of course. :) We celebrate Hanukkah with my extended family for one night, so I'll get to see it every year now!



My mom and I are hoping to team up to make a bunch of these for different seasons (spring/summer, summer/fall, fall/winter, fall/Christmas or Hanukkah, etc.). Is anyone interested in having one made? With a unique layout, custom straight line/free motion quilting, and machine binding, they would be about $60. I'm just trying to get an idea of what combinations people would like. So, even if you aren't interested in buying, would you mind telling me what combinations you think would work? Thanks! :)

Sparkly Cotton and Steel binding has my heart!



 Those straight lines are purposely organic. :)

 I need to get labels made!

Happy Chrismukkah from our house to yours!

  1. It turned out so cute! I love the autumn and Christmas/Hanukkah. Valentine's and Easter would work together too!

  2. I think something like a generic summer, with Fourth of July on the back would work out well - at least for me. :D I always forget to decorate for holidays, so just being able to flip a table runner/topper over at the last minute would be great! Even better if it could also magically keep the table clear of clutter too. That would cost extra though, right? :D

  3. That is super cute! There are lots of back to back holidays that might work. For me, personally, I would like something with seasonal colors more than a distinct theme, though. Cool colors for spring / bright colors for summer / earthy tones for fall / whites and greys for winter. It seems like a lot of fun and great ideas could play out with these!

  4. Everyone's suggestions have been great. Another possibility is one side silver & white and the other side gold & white. Without being too "in your face" it works for Christmas, Hanukkah, special anniversaries, and general prettiness.

  5. so cute! I love the swirly quilting :) $60 is definitely a fair price. I would suggest snow/valentines (since valentines is still a "winter" holiday) but it's silly to decorate more than a week with red and pink hearts :p That way you can just flip it for a week then turn it back over until the spring thaw :)
