    A few months ago, this Board helped me to find this pattern which was out of print. I have made four of the runners and decided to try making a reversible one. You just need to reverse the direction of one side, and then it works out perfectly. This one has Autumn on one side and a Christmas/Winter color scheme on the other side.

    Wow, what a great idea. I got the pattern & ruler last year but have not attempted it. Both sides look fabulous.

    I have the pattern, the ruler, and have picked out the fabrics but have never started making it. The pattern needs more how to pictures!

    Reading the pattern is more intimidating than actually making the runner. I was the same way. Every time I read the pattern, I broke out in sweats thinking about it. Once I started doing it, and following the steps, it was not difficult.

    Your spiral runner is beautiful. I am confused about your binding. Do you put both sides together (rs together), sew all around (leave opening), turn right side out, hand stitch the opening? I thought a separate binding was needed, but by looking at yours...not so.
    I like yours better because it would be difficult to find one fabric that would look good with all the fabrics in the two sides.
    Do I have this right???

    Very nice and I love your color choices. Both sides work wonderfully for the seasons.

    Thanks,

    To all of you and to JanetM in particular: Thanks so much for your lovely comments on the table runner!! A separate binding would be very difficult to do, not only because of color choice, but because of the narrow almost-pointed ends, so I do an "envelope turn" (right sides together, stitch all around leaving an opening of 4 - 6 inches, then turning it out and hand-stitching the opening closed) and then after gently pressing it and coaxing all the edges out, I machine-stitch all around about a half-inch or so from the edge - I use a quilting needle, and the width of my walking foot is my guide to keep the stitching even.
    I also found the directions intimidating and have a few tips and tricks I could share if anyone wants to PM me. Not sure I can give this one away because I like it so much myself!!
