ho ho ho . . . oh oh oh!
Based on her design, I made this table runner for my friends Kate and Ken, who decorate their home in a big way for the holidays–you should see their Santa collection!
Like Kerry, I used 2-inch squares. I added a 1/2-inch strip between the ho’s, a 1-inch red border (with 1-inch white square keystones) and a 2-inch green border.
On the back I used a busy Christmas print (the better to hid the free-motion quilting, my dear), and I bound it with a white polka dot on gray–if you squint, it kind of looks like falling snow at dusk.
What both Kate and I find amusing is that if you view the runner from the opposite side, the ho ho ho becomes oh oh oh! We wondered how this message should best be interpreted: should it be the oh oh oh of holiday overwhelm and stress . . . or the oh oh oh of Christmas anticipation and celebration? We opt for the latter!
