Double the Pleasure

In choosing a backing fabric for the tablerunner, I was challenged to find a coordinating fabric large enough amongst my stash, but I did. I considered piecing together a backing from a few chunks of various fabrics, but I decided that I wanted it to be reversible and a single fabric would be nice. I didn't put a middle layer in because I want the runner to be flat and not puffy. It's finished like a pillow case and top-stitched around the edge, which you can just make out in the close up photo.

Both sides look good.
I'm v-e-r-y impressed by your totally clear table! Perhaps a table runner would inspire me to create one!!

Thanks, Laura! I recommend sewing a tablerunner, over clearing it and if one leads to the other even better! :)
