I attached the strips in the sew and flip method (ironing out each strip) thereby quilting it to the back as I went. When it was finished, I trimmed the whole tablerunner edge and added binding.
    thanks...think I will try it for the next one which is to be the same pattern in different fabrics ...each day I learn something new on this Board.

    Thanks for using the tute I posted! Your runner came out beautifully! I usually use a low loft batting for my runners. I've never had a problem with tall candles tipping with it. Also, Tartan has a good idea of quilt as you go too. This is the perfect pattern for that. Let us see the next one also!

    That is so pretty. Would use a piece of flannel that is what I used. Would be interested in how you are going to finish off the edge. I am attempting binding. Still having trouble with inside corners.

    That is beautiful. Congratulations on your first. Beautiful colors and well done. You need to be warned however that what starts out as one table runner turns into an obsession. I went from one table runner to a fabric stash with quilting books by the bed for nighttime reading--and all in 7 months. You are on the way!!

    Beautiful table topper!!! Awesome job especially for your first. Love making them and use Pellon fusible batting then quilt lightly and have been able to set all kinds of items on them. Pellon fusible is not too thick and gives it just the right softness to be pretty but allow placement of items. Also, Jack, my seam ripper is often my best friend!! Keep up the good work.

    I prefer W&N batting. I have used low loft poly and it is ok. I have also used flannel; just be sure to pre-shrink it. I have not had any problem with tall items falling over when I set them on a runner with a batting, but the seams on runners without batting create more high and low spots so things don't sit right.

    I sew scraps of W&N together to make batting the right size for the runner I'm making. It's a great way to save money and works just as well as a full piece of batting.

    That is very beautiful! I would probably just use interfacing and no batting.
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
