    Default Jenny's Scrap Buster Table Runner - Help

    I was watching Jenny's Scrap Buster Table Runner again because I'd like to try it for my next piecing project. I noticed that she doesn't say anything about binding at the end. I'm thinking that perhaps she used a solid backing and just turned the piece inside out after leaving about a 3" opening. Then pressed and stitched around the edge about a quarter of an inch? I'd think that would be easier than trying to put a binding around the outer edge with all those angles? What do you think she did? Also I'm thinking of using some of the warm and natural cotton batting that I have around, do you think that would work ok?

    That runner is definitely finished with binding. You can see it when she holds it up in the beginning.

    There was a really jumpy edit at the end, looks like they cut off the finishing part.

    I did this table runner without binding, although I don't think the binding would be any more difficult than the four corners of a rectangular or square quilt. I did put two borders on mine, and used Warm & Natural batting: http://forum.missouriquiltco.com/mem...5-800x600.html

    The only issue with doing it this way is if you want to do "fancy" quilting. I only do Stitch-More-or-Less-in-the-General-Vicinity-of-the-Ditch, so I just followed the lines from the center to the first binding.

    Here's a double-sided one (Christmas/Easter). I did very minimal quilting on this one, and used invisible thread: http://forum.missouriquiltco.com/mem...0-600x800.html

    I did this one too. I used binding. I didn't find it that much different then binding a quilt. I used the same fabric for the binding as I did for the border.

    Thanks, this was my second table runner ever and my absolute favorite. What doesn't come across in the picture is that on the pumpkin fabric I quilted a spiderweb. Thank goodness for stencils!

    You don't have to use the binding tool for this do you? You can just cut the fabrics on an angle? Because I don't have this tool because I found a much less troublesome way to do bindings, so I wouldn't want to buy it just for this runner.

    The tutorial Jenny made, does use the binding tool. You use it to cut the angle and length of the strips in the table runner.

    Loving this one!! Thanks for the chuckle, Sally!

    Sorry didn't get back to you guys with my thanks earlier. Got a tooth pulled this morning and I'm miserable!

    I guess for some reason I was thinking a binding would easily bunch at those corners. Don't know why I was thinking that since my normal 4 corners don't bunch (or rarely). I'm having a hard time seeing the binding with the black borders. I'm guessing that her binding starts out as a 1 1/2 inch strip?

    I had bought the binding tool a few weeks ago just to do this. Also I had loused up the Everest Stonehenge layer cake I bought. I had wanted to do something in the Summer in the Park Revamped only to realize that that uses a jelly roll. So not thinking I cut the layer cake into 2 1/2 inch strips. Yeah I forgot you also needed the length and 2 1/2 inch x 10" strips were just not going to cut it so to speak. So that mistake is being turned into several other projects. The scrap buster table runner is lovely and so flexible. I love the ones you guys did. Hope mine turns out as good!!

    Sally O Sews since you didn't do binding did you sew around the sides and then turn it? K I did notice that the tutorial ended abruptly and wondered about it but didn't think much past it.

    Thank you all so much for your thoughts.
