I have made table runners as gifts (Christmas and Halloween) and also have made Christmas pillows for gifts. I usually plan it way in advance so I’m not scrambling at the last moment as I need to Mail all my gifts.

Yes I make table runners as gifts. This year I am making them reversible. Fall on one side, Christmas/Winter on the other. I will probably use a stipple quilting design. You have some great pattern options in your stash. I also have made the bowl cozy as gifts too.

I've made table runners and toppers, oven mitts, wall hangings, placemats, pillows, tree skirts. The pillows are pretty fast to make.
I just finished some quilt as you go placemats for us using jellyrolls. That was fast(except having to bind 6 of them). I also somewhere have a pattern for charms to make runners and those do go quick- no bindings!


Before I retired I made ornaments for all the staff and trustees every year--50+--so I was attuned to projects that were easy to mass-produce. Right now I like to make mug rugs. As well as being used as intended (oversized coasters) they can be small wall hangings. They're the right size for a thinking-of-you gift. (Funny that I like to make mug rugs but I've never made fabric postcards.)


Funny you should mention it...right now, I'm in the midst of making table runners as gifts! I bought 3 kits containing everything except batting for $15. each on a recent trip. They're self-binding with the backing wrapping around to the top. I've already made another one with fabric from my stash/leftovers & I can see where this is going...


My favorite table runner for a gift is the Spicy Spiral. It is so fun to make and looks great in holiday fabrics. I like doing lap throws for gifts too. I did one queen size quilt as you go quilt many years ago. Lots of work. Table runners would be better suited. Looks like you have a good assortment of patterns ready to go.
