    I'm pleased with how this turned out! I made it for my aunt, who is hosting our entire family (about 30 of us) at her cabin over the 4th of July weekend. I wanted a nice way to say "Thank you!"
    The back is denim with stars stamped on using fabric paint. I used white flannel as a middle layer to keep the white stripes looking white.
    Thanks for looking! :D

    I just love this tale runner! Using flannel to keep the white strips white is such a great hint. And the back - oh my - what a great idea!

    I'm not real big on the table runners but I like this one. I'd be happy to have that on my table and I'm sure your Aunt will too.

    It's a beautiful table runner. I love the red, white and blue combo and I love that pattern. Did you get it from Quiltbug?

    Very sharp! That table runner is just so versatile!
    I am using it as a first quilting project for a friend of mine that joined our sewing group :)

    I love the fabric combination you used!

    Yes, I used jeans for the back. I got a pair at a garage sale for $2, and just cut them up! Cheapest back ever! :lol: :lol: (well, for me anyways!)
