    Your table runners all look fab :thumbup: . Sounds like you all had a lot of fun too, Thankyou so much to Debbie and Mimi for making it happen :P . Am going to try and make the Tuesday class, will have to use a substitute for the cotton batt tho, so that should be interesting :lol: . Am thinking of using an old blanket, will hold it's shape well, be easy to sew thru several layers and has been washed a million times so won't shrink, I think poly batt might be a little puffy for this project, what do you think.

    I think that would work well ShellyQ. Even flannel washed several times would make a wonderful batting. Hope you make the tuesday class.

    I like yours too, Ruth. Am going to make a Xmas one also and only use the two fabrics. Wish I would have thought of that!! Took me awhile trying to find scraps to use. :evil:

    I used poly batting, I was very careful to only touch down on the fabric and did not set my iron on as hot as usual. I had a half yard of red, and a half of the green. Then a half yard for back. I used some solid green strips for binding. I made binding by cutting strips one and a half inches. I pressed under a quarter inch on one side. I sewed the raw edge side to the back then flipped it over and sewed it down on front :D This was a fun project, good for all experience levels. I can't wait to see what is next. :D

    These are all wonderful! I'm going to have to go back and re-look at my strips of scraps and see what I can come up with. I want to do them all. I had made up my mind but after looking at everyone's beautiful table runners I am more indecisive than ever!!! Fall? Spring? Christmas? Pastel or brights? HELP!! :shock:

    Ruth, Haven't you heard? Red is a neutral! Your table will look lovely with a runner with lots of yellows, oranges, browns and a few beiges. Just a little red, perhaps. Some fall florals (mums) and/or fruits. Oh, yes. Perhaps I should make that one too.
    :wink: I'm just greedy! I want to make them ALL!

    I can't believe no one else has posted their table runner in the last few days!

    I am posting mine (again) now that it has the binding on it, and you can see my fabric I used on the back. I think mine is much smaller than some of the others!

    Mine is about 3 feet by 2.

    Hey to you in Greenville! I have a great uncle and aunt there. They used to own Lees Department store until they retired.

    Hey, And I am originally from Fl. (Miami), and I have friends that live in Tampa, Bradenton, and St.Pete. Small world. Do you ever visit your relatives here? Greenville is growing really fast. Anywho - Your runner isn't much smaller. Mine is 43" long so just 7" longer then yours. I did a Christmas one. Well I guess instead of chatting I should be sewing so I can post a picture. :?

    Thanks DonnaRae. :) I'm giving it to my son tomorrow. It's a surprise. I hope he likes it! I went ahead and did a little quilting in that center block. I just know with their two little kids it won't last a day without a washing. :lol:

    Lin,
    Like you, I did some quilting in the center block, but it doesn't show. The fabric is too busy. It does show up well on the back, though.

    Your project is really colorful; very pretty. I'm sure your son and his children will love it for Halloween.

    Connie
