    Table runner and scrim.

    Batting with scrim....using it for a table runner......which way up? I usually lay the batting with the scrim ide down on the backing fabric but am wondering if the same rule applies for a table runner that will gt most of its wear and rub on its top rather than the back? Any advice?

    Silly me, I just assumed there was scrim on both sides. Would there not be bearding on the other side if there is no scrim? I do rather wish I had/could have taken some classes. I have wasted a lot of time because I didn't know how to do something. I also await someone who can answer your question.

    When I first started quilting I was told that the scrim should be facing down. Sometimes I forget to look as I have batting with and without scrim. But there aren't any quilt police.

    Batting with scrim, how do you know which side is which? I didn't know it had 2 sides.

    The Hobbs Poly-down has scrim in the middle. Hmmm.. I didn't know there was batting with scrim on the outside.

    I was told that if the scrim is slightly visible, that should be toward the side that gets the most wear.

    Unless you are making a quilt or table runner that will be used and passed along to several generations, it makes no difference. So make and enjoy.

    Yes sailsablazin it is a Judy Neimeyer pattern: Compass Rose. I just finished a Desert Sky and thoroughly enjoyed that one too.

    Many years ago we learned this about scrim:
    Dimples up, pimples down. Also, see the dimples, hide the pimples.

    Not sure it matters so much these days.

    Ruby, that's gorgeous!
