    I have made table runners like yours, but not ragged, just the sqs, quilted and connected like you did. I love them, I had to make a couple for my friends, after they had seen mine. I love your rag idea, I picture homespun in a country decor. Good job.

    I love them and they would make great gifts - ANYTIME!
    Thanks for the idea.
    I am guessing they are all cotton? (not flannel?) There is a layer of ? and a backing of what?
    This is stealing of ideas = I know but they are so cute................
    Thanks. Rein

    Your ragtime quilt runner is soooo cute. I love to make the quilts. When we make the quilts we make the "sandwich" batting in between the material and sew an "X" to hold the 3 pieces together. If we were to use batting for a table runner would that X also be necessary - if not how would the batting stay in place? I am quite a novice at sewing but I am committed to master the art of quilting. Thanx again for sharing your runner. :)

    Hi DakotaQuilter:
    I don't think you'd need batting in your tablerunner if you are using flannel. Using 2 layers of flannel will give the tablerunner a good weight/body without the bulk. Recently I took a class on making rag quilts and for the bear, dog, kitty quilts we used 3 layers of flannel so we had a nice "fringe" all the way around the quilt. This made for a heavy quilt but sure gave the edges of the bear a great look...I think you could use 2 or 3 layers of flannel and not worry about batting. If you layer your flannel blocks and sew 1 inch seams (the fringe) all around the blocks when sewing the blocks together I don't think you'd need the "X" through the block...especially since the tablerunner isn't going to have rough treatment like a quilt might have. The tablerunner will be laying flat on a table whereas a quilt is on a bed and gets wound around body and legs and gets pulled and tugged on.

    not really..like feathers said it just lays on your table so you wouldnt need to..i make my batting the same size as my blocks so i dont need to..
