Once I decided to make table runners out of it I had to fussy cut the the borders so that I can turn them 180 degrees from each other so there is no right or wrong side to the table runner. now it's time to pick a back fabric and a coordinate fabric. I have lots to pick from. I will then take a 2 inch strip of the back fabric and sew the two borders onto the strip so that they are each facing the opposite direction. Then I cut 2 inch strips of the coordinate fabric and sew it to the two outside edges of my new panel. Then I take the back and sew it on...
This is my take on the 10 minute table runner...I call it the 20 minute table runner because you are adding a couple more strips to the runner!
So here they are..What do you think? I gave them to all my sisters and we are loving them!
