I recently purchased a kit to make this table runner (but I made it a wall quilt instead.)  I've never worked with a kit before but I sure enjoyed this since I didn't have to pick out the fabrics.  I can see myself making more kits, especially if they are as cute as this.

It's hanging in my livingroom and adding lots of Christmas cheer.

Looks great, I love how festive it is.  How are the white stripes on the blue tree done (it's hard to tell from the picture)?

Thin white ribbon glued on.  The ribbon has a design on it which does not show up in the pictures.

That makes sense, I was trying to figure out how you pieced such thin pieces.
