Talkin' Turkey

It's Shameless Commerce Tuesday and today I'm featuring a simple and understated holiday table runner. It would provide a beautiful backdrop for a Thanksgiving centerpiece, holiday buffet, or autumn or Fall event, and it can transition into Christmas.

The fancy and festive side features a shimmery synthetic decorator fabric with gold autumn leaves ranging in size from 1/2" to 1.5" on a cranberry or dark red background.  

The reverse side is more casual, with a 100% cotton batik in shades of cranberry, dark red, and rust. 

This piece could transition from early Fall through the holidays.

Because this was made from bargain fabrics I purchased at the Hillestad Textiles Gallery's annual garage sale fundraiser, the price for this pretty home accent is only $12.00 USD.  Such a deal!!

The table scarf measures approximately 42" (107 cm)  in length and 14" (35.5 cm) in width. The runner has no batting and is not quilted, so it provides a perfectly level surface on which to place your Thanksgiving turkey platter -- or other foods and beverages!

Our Thanksgiving plans are uncertain -- but the quilt shop will be closed Thursday and Friday.  Do you have any favorite Thanksgiving traditions?



  1. Very pretty! My mom would love this table runner.

  2. Very lovely, the perfect additions to any holiday table.

    Thanksgiving traditions--eat, eat, eat, play games, hang out with family
    Thanksgiving is my family's favorite holiday!

    1. I should add that with all that eating, there's a lot of cooking. And we have some amazing cooks!
