    I used a charm pack and made this tablerunner... however, I am not sure how to finish it. It is already SO bright and busy that I am not feeling good about using the polkadot charms that are left as a border. I would like to finish it with just the brown polkadot charms, but there is only one left. Thinking I need to go searching for more of that fabric.

    Any other ideas??

    Found some scraps that may work, and get rid of the brown all together? added more pics

    I would choose one of the colors in the runner for the binding. It would not take much, but I don't think I would repeat the brown. Darker red maybe?

    I think you have the right idea, just need a different color, one of the colors in the runner. A marble or blender wouldn't be as stark as a solid color.

    What about a navy blue, or try to match the blue that you have used?

    I was thinking a chocolate brown but are u using it on that table you pictured it one. Then the blue would look better. I like the darker blue with the chickens, in a blender. You wouldn't need a binding. Could just turn it.
