TABLE RUNNER


I have a friend that is having a birthday next month so I decided to make her a table runner. I love the colors but I am contemplating embelishing it with some hearts, flowers, something. Any ideas???? I have some big buttons, lady bug and flip flop buttons....does that help? Maybe I will go and make some more table runners??? I have enough for another runner just like this one....we will see. I am feeling much better now...don't know, must have had a bug.

Love the colors. Don't know about the buttons though. If she sets something on it and it sits on a button, it will not sit flat anymore. That could be bad if it was a bowl of food.

I love the colors. Perfect for a birthday present. I think it looks great just the way it is. Glad you are feeling better.

Love it, love the spring colors, I like it just as it is!

I must admit to the button comment - might make setting something on it too risky. I'm a fan of simplicity and would probably leave it, but if you can't a simple flower in a corner could look ok.

I like it that way, too...and the button comment is very valid. However, if you have your heart set on doing somethingelse to it, maybe you could applique one ladybug onto it (should probably be easy to google a ladybug and make a pattern for an applique of it...maybe put it near a corner. A butterfly would work, too. BUT...I think it stands alone just fine.

Love it like it is but I think ladybugs would be super cute one it. Lucky friend you have.

I love the colors in your quilt! It's cute just the way it is.

Glad you're feeling better. Your body must have just needed some rest!

I really like that! I agree with other posts and would probably leave off the buttons. Although they would look really cute and give it spazzaza (<-- is that a word? LOL) they might get in the way. The table topper reminds me of spring! Oh how I wish it was right around the corner for us! lol
Happy Quilting!

I like the colors of that quilt and it would be nice just how it is. Glad you are feeling better. I think that bug is going around everywhere.
