I have finally finished up my Spicy Spiral table runner. I am happy with it, even though it isn't really "my colors". I may give it away to a good friend who has built a new home- it matches her home much better than it does mine... we'll see. I used a fusible batting and I found the perfect green batik with a bit of brown in it for the backing.
How do you finish off something that will not be bound? Do you dislike the "stitch all around but leave an opening to turn it through" method- then you have to try and get a smooth edge where you must handstitch the gap? If so, you might want to try my method.. (Sorry - never thought to take pics, but I'm sure you can do it just from my written description.)
