    If you had not mentioned the stars, I would never have noticed!!

    very light weight flannel would work, or a light weight pellon. You might even get the fusible kind. At any rate, I think you would need to secure your layers. Any kind of fusible might be ideal for that--bond the top to the back with the snow white fusibles?

    So far as binding, what about a dark navy blue cotton?

    The table runner is just beautiful :-D

    I think the fleece is a good idea and agree with others who suggest binding in red. What if you were to free motion a meandering star pattern in the braids and a single star in the center? Maybe you could put a star in a star in the center.

    For table runners and place mats, I use a thin fleece. My LQS carries it, it is a little less expensive and lays nice and flat for me on the table. And it doesn't have enough bulk to lets plates and such wobble.

    Lovely table runner, I have used that pattern, I like how you fussy cut the squares! Great look. I have read the suggestions on the batting and think flannel is fine to use after it has been washed and dried. Binding with the read or even navy blue would be very attractive. Good Luck, post when you have finished.

    The denim needs to be washed and dried at least THREE times, also it keep the shrinkage and staining at a minimum.
    Your table runner is WONDERFUL!
    So inspiring, that I am thinking about picking up the pattern so I can make table runners for the Post and each of our local nursing homes ... And, your idea of flannel is an excellent idea especially as you understand that the thickness effects how things sit on the fabric. Diaper flannel is a closer weave, so even less chance of the white becoming dingy looking ... (just personal preference ).
    GOOD JOB!
