    I wanted to make a table runner/topper for our Thanksgiving table. I needed something that was fast to do. I decided from all I had read on here that the DP9 was a fast and easy way to go.
    So today I did my tabletopper. It isn't quilted yet. I plan to use a Christmas fabric on the back so I can get more use out of it.
    Not sure how I will quilt it. Probably just some straight line quilting or SID, since I am not good at FMQ. For binding I have fabric that will blend in with the background in the apple fabric or I will use the lighter fabric in the blocks with the little bitty vines in it.

    I almost forgot I should add a border fabric. Oh dear! Wonder what I will use. I could do the apples but should have a thin one before I put the apple on. Maybe a red thin border then the apples?

    How about a thin gold border like the darkest part of the pear for a thin border then the apple for a bit wider border?

    Very nice. I've never done a DP9, but will definitely put it on my 'to do list'. Thanks for sharing.

    Pretty! I'd do a thin red border, then another border with either the apple or vine fabric and decide the binding last. I'd probably end up with red binding. :)

    Turned out very nice! I really really love the D9P. Quick and easy, lots of fun, and such a beautiful (and more complicated looking) outcome with minimal effort! lol

    I think I would do a small red border, then the apples or vines, and bind in red.

    Very pretty. I would go along with thin red border, wider border with one of prints already used. Then a red binding will look great from both this side and the Christmas print side.

    Very Pretty. I think a dark green border would really make it *pop*.
