    Question Please help..picking more fabrics to finish table runner for swap

    Hi all,
    I am finishing a table runner for a swap here, my swap partner has asked about something to go with her fruit theme plates..the plates also have a light blue color around the rims, so I am considering incorporating a blue in it..but I am having a hard time deciding...ignore the stabilizer showing thru on the blocks, it will go as soon as I get the applique done...also the wrinkles in the fabrics...couldn't see ironing until I know which one I will use..lol..
    I also posted pics of a red dot fabric and a yellow blender-y fabric. Also, the grapes are a tad more purple than the pics seem to show...

    Love the blue check in the last picture, that's what I would choose. Can't wait to see how it looks when done.

    I also vote for the blue check used as backing and binding. Nice work on the applique and wonderful choice of fabric for the border. I look forward to seeing the completed project.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Blue gingham! It pulls out the blue color and ties the whole look together.

    Thank you all for your input! Em, I am glad you are liking it so far...I have to say the blue check was a last minute fabric choice...I was heading out of my fabric room, and it just caught my eye...at first I thought, I don't know...then I put it with the squares, and I liked the combo, too...So, I will have to decide for sure, and keep it a surprise for Em!..Off now to do the applique stitching!
    Regards,
    Kif
    PS I love the table runner you are making for me, too!! This is just a great swap!

    I dare to be different....I like the blue I. The second picture....it grounds the business of the sashing.

    Nobody said red dotted. I bet it would look nice too.
