    Need Color HELP on a Table Runner!!

    I am making a French Braid table runner for a room that has red, black and white in it....I have two combinations showing just half of the runner on my fabric board. Which do you like best and what should the binding be?? Thanks for looking and taking the time to answer!!!

    The second one with black binding would be my choice.

    I think the red, black and white is really dramatic and can be used year round. I would use black to bind. The red and white is really pretty for valentines, summer time and I would use red to bind. A decorator said once every room needs a touch of black to anchor. I just love the drama and strong statement the top piece makes.

    Thank you

    I prefer the first one too, but did you try one with all three colors? Alternate red, white, black. I agree to bind with the black or red.

    I agree that sounds pretty with the silver-gray binding.

    i've always liked black red and white, so prefer the first. however, the second will lighten your table... so agree with a black binding on the second picture.

    I agree that the black, red and white would work best for anytime. Maybe make one of each and use #2 for spring. Just my thoughts.

    Wow they are both just wonderful but if I had to make a choice it would be the second one.

    The black adds lots of drama and that would be my choice.

    I like the sophistication of the first one. I would use black binding.

    I really, really like the first one best, but the second one is nice too. Maybe think about doing it as a quilt as you go & use both combinations. One one one side & the other on the other side. That would make it reversible. I made several like that & had a Christmas theme on one side & the other side matched the kitchens of how I made it for. Just a thought.

    Um, since I am fairly certain (lol) this is to be my table runner soon...(Okay, I don't have ESP, just ESPN...Auntie Em asked me which I liked) I LIKE all 3...I LOVE the 1st an 3rd ones best..The combo of the red, white, and black is great, however you choose to do them! I just love how black really adds the "pop" to it all. I can't wait to do our swap...and see how great this looks with my Coca Cola theme dining room. As I have said, I will love whatever you send! I hope you like what I am making for you, too...

    I like the first one--both are beautiful but the red and white one would be too Valentine's for year round for me. :-) You have a tough choice before you I cannot wait to see what you do!!:-)

    Edited to add I really like the 3rd one didn't see that one before I posted
