I have been making a modern 3D bed runner. I really don't know the difference between a bed runner and a table runner other than one fits the size of your table and one your bed. I am wondering if it is just another excuse to make a quilt? Either way, I am in!
I had some lovely solids with a whole swack of white and played around creating this runner. When it was done, I felt it needed a bit more zing to it as there was so much white in the middle. I made twelve 3D flowers and twelve twirlies and laid them out randomly in the center of the runner.
Now I have a confession. When I do binding, the end part, I never do that cut, measure, miter thing. All I do is tuck one end into another and keep on going. Then feel bad that I never learned how to do it properly. That is probably why I haven't won one of the top 3 at Houston yet. That or I have to actually get a quilt accepted first=)
I came across this fabulous binding tutorial at Ellison Lane and simply had to tell you about it! I don't have permission to borrow pictures but go and take a look. Totally easy with great photos.
