Christmas in October?

I couldn't resist. When I saw Ariane's tutorial for a  festive santa runner,
I immediately checked my Go! cutter stash for the triangle die. I had it! Turns out my office staff gave it to me for Christmas last year.   They picked a great die!
As well, Ariane includes instructions for this project without using a Go! so that's awesome too.

The tutorial for this cute Christmas table runner was featured during the Go! blog hop.  I started to cut it out from my left over fabric from the Peppermint Path quilt I am making. I carefully cut the triangles to get the most of my scraps.
I pieced the runner and now I just have to add the appliques.
I am well on my way, this might just get finished before Christmas, LOL.

Vickie, a GO die makes a thoughtful gift, very nice of your office staff. Will you have time to make each of them a thank you runner?? LOL
