Carol......I use one of the fabrics from the front of the runner. And I actually cut it an inch larger on all sides to use as my binding. I can turn it and then top stitch it down and not have to cut separate pieces and then sew it on and turn an then sew it down by hand, The first way saves time. Hope this helps.

QUOTE=quiltlady1941;5659535]I was just wondering what everyone used for the backing on there table runners... I have to make a few for some gifts and didn't know if I should just use muslin or the christmas fabric from the front. What are your thought on this...
