    THanks everyone.
    I'm going to try a few more today. Maybe scrappy ones since I have a TON of scraps sitting on the floor.

    It looks fantastic!!! Hey, do what i do, fabric always stretches when we don't want it to, so i make it stretch when i do want it to lol, just grab the whole thing and give a few pulls and tugs, and then iron it if it isnt polyfil, but it looks great, just beat it into submission!!!!!!! lol lol

    Looks great Terri and the red is so bright and festive. Just follow the seams for quilting, that works good or every other one. Whatever you do will look fine.

    Terri,

    Here's a trick to try:

    Get the runner wet, and block it. If you have a pinnable mat or a piece of Styrofoam big enough, pit it to that. Some quilters use a couple pieces of 4'x8' insulation boards to do this with competition quilts.

    Shhhh....it's a secret!!!!

    Good Luck!!

    Yup, that's right! Quilt after you sew and turn and then everything is all done!
