    Question Please help..picking more fabrics to finish table runner for swap

    Hi all,
    I am finishing a table runner for a swap here, my swap partner has asked about something to go with her fruit theme plates..the plates also have a light blue color around the rims, so I am considering incorporating a blue in it..but I am having a hard time deciding...ignore the stabilizer showing thru on the blocks, it will go as soon as I get the applique done...also the wrinkles in the fabrics...couldn't see ironing until I know which one I will use..lol..
    I also posted pics of a red dot fabric and a yellow blender-y fabric. Also, the grapes are a tad more purple than the pics seem to show...

    Love the blue check in the last picture, that's what I would choose. Can't wait to see how it looks when done.

    I also vote for the blue check used as backing and binding. Nice work on the applique and wonderful choice of fabric for the border. I look forward to seeing the completed project.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Blue gingham! It pulls out the blue color and ties the whole look together.

    They are right, the blue check looks best, IMHO

    Thank you all for your input! Em, I am glad you are liking it so far...I have to say the blue check was a last minute fabric choice...I was heading out of my fabric room, and it just caught my eye...at first I thought, I don't know...then I put it with the squares, and I liked the combo, too...So, I will have to decide for sure, and keep it a surprise for Em!..Off now to do the applique stitching!
    Regards,
    Kif
    PS I love the table runner you are making for me, too!! This is just a great swap!
