    Sorry Jodi…you get a *groan* from me! But the pattern is super cute, and for those of us who aren’t quite ready for Christmas in June, some non-Christmasy fabrics would work well!

  2. no groan here jodi.
    in fact, i'm gonna go throw in a christmas movie now, and quilt like a busy little elf.

    i ♥ how the little stars come together when it's pieced.

    Ok, now I’m feeling guilty! What to do, what to do… hold onto my ice cold diet dr pepper and continue reading on the deck, or go inside and start a Christmas gift?
    It looks awesome and you must feelt great to have something marked off your list this early!

  5. No groans here! I love it! Summer is the best time to get a head start on Christmas! Cheers!

  7. Jodi put together a great pattern and tutorial for this table runner. Gotta’ order some Christmas charms.

    Super cute! I love those little stars. Now I need to go shopping for Christmas fabric. Gee, that's such a shame.

  10. Kim says:

    Okay, I'm in denial that Christmas is that close but, this is an adorable Christmas project that I just might have to make. But right now, I'm in the catch up mode. I have a list of quilts I want to make during my summer break from work.

    I had decided to make a Christmas gift or project every month, too, but haven't yet. I love this! Thanks for the tutorial!

  15. Thank you for making such a cute pattern using my fabric! I have no problem with putting Christmas music on in July – I finished the paintings for the Holly Jolly Snowmen line July of 2008!
