Reversible Table Runner Take Two

I am starting another project with the lovely fabrics from Amy Butler's Lark collection.  The prints are so exotic and beautiful and they have been sitting on my shelf for a couple of months calling my name. With these fabrics, I decided to make another reversible table runner because the first one was and still is a big hit with many readers.

This is the first reversible table runner I made.  One side is the Guising fabric collection by Lizzy House (with a few others thrown in) and the other side is Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy collection.  The solid is Kona cotton Snow.

The Guising collection is so fun that I wanted to make a festive table runner out of it.  However, it just didn't seem practical to me to spend a lot of time and effort into making a table runner and only use it for one month out of a year.  I decided to make it reversible so that it wouldn't spend so much time in a box.

I am going to use the Lark collection for the half square triangle/chevron pattern side.  Eeeek!  I can't wait!

Here is the other side with Flea Market Fancy, which could be used any time of the year.  For the striped side of my new table runner, I have decided to make it with a Christmas theme and these adorable little scottie dogs.

That way one side provides Christmas decoration and the other can be used any other time of the year.  

You can find a pattern for this reversible table runner in my Etsy shop if you would like to make one for your home or as a gift.  Here is the listing:  Reversible Table Runner.
