Christmas Tablerunner Progress...

I have quilted the first of the runners. Just an all over stipple, nothing fancy, no flowers or loopy swirls, just a good old stipple! I ended up using a verigated green, both on the front and back.

So now I am ready to bind this one and am unsure which would be the best colour. This photo isn't the best, sometimes seeing a photo really makes the choice easier..... I love the greens as there is little bits of dark green in some of the holly leaves, so that would be a good match even though it is not "Christmas material" But I don't have enough, going to raid Mum's stash over the weekend and see if she has anything similar or even one of these prints as its a dull dark green, not in my usual palette! The reds are deep and rich with little tone on tone motifs, again not Christmas related. I have plenty of each colour, just pondering if it will make the red zig zag in the middle too bold? Thoughts dear blog readers?

Personally I think a red binding, but I am very biased towards red at the best of times!

I like the idea of a red binding. And I don't think the red zig zag is too bold with or without it. I like some areas to be more pronounced and others take a back seat. It helps make it sparkle :).

I definitely like the red binding better.

And she's off an racing! I like red. It will make the red zag zig a bit more (LOL), but as it's in the middle I think that will work really well.

I'm thinking red too! Most of the fabrics have a bit of red in them, so I think it would work best.

This is such an inspiring blog, Helen :) When uni is over I want to do more sewing, and start quilting!
