first of all, thanks for the feedback...i really do need all the input i can get!!!
anyway, the table runners are 34" long so they would work. i also thought that putting flat casings on the back would work better because they would lie flat if needed.
here are a couple more i have finished.
these are 22" square and more universal fabrics.
i am working on two bethlehem stars right now...one with a food theme & the other with floral. the center where all the points meet is giving me fits but i think i may be getting it together!
i am just happy to be able to putter around with this & have someplace to get ideas & feedback. i don't know anyone that quilts or sews so this is a great opportunity for me...and again thanks for the suggestions
